Looking for some comments/suggestions on these images. Client wanted specific shots of machinery, product and the people. They knew exactly which shots they wanted, I just needed to capture them. I found out about this job a day before I had to shoot it, quite the last minute. The photographer that was doing it quit the day before so a buddy called in a favor to me.
I am hoping to impress this company enough to get future paid work in the future. I am still doing some final edits on them (white balance and level adjustments), but some suggestions would help out in terms of color and such if you have. Or simply let me know if you like them.
First shot is showing product being moved around the shipping department. They wanted to show inventory as well, hence the wider shot.
This image was showing them packaging some of the stainless steel products they manufacture get packaged.
This image was shot using my Samyang 14mm and placed via gorillapod on the desk in front of her. They wanted to show her inspecting and boxing the product. Compared to the image they showed me, I feel this image was a home-run in terms of showing exactly what they wanted. The sample image sent showed her from the back end, with not much story... If that makes sense.
Showing a worker running the equipment to make the fasteners. I had a few other angles, but this one seemed to be a bit more focused while still showing the worker running the equipment.
This image they showed me prior to me shooting this, but it was just the parts laying on the ground. Had no story, background, etc... I had the worker attach the crane and the cradle to show the product in process of being shipped. I think it worked extremely well. The hot-spot at the end of the part in my final image will be fixed in photoshop, I have done a sample or two and they looked really good and less distracting.
Showing some of the equipment and the working running it. This is some of the oldest equipment making these parts.
This is stepping up to a slightly newer equipment making the same parts. At faster speed and precision, though. Used the 14mm again to capture some of the parts in the machinery so it did not just look like somebody standing next to random equipment.
And finally, showing off their new CNC equipment. They originally were going to throw me on a boom-arm to take an ariel shot but that idea was scrapped. So I had to use a step-ladder and my 14mm to capture all three machines. This shot was a bit difficult to get something interesting, but this is the best I was able to get in one image.
The final image not posted is of the 4-generations of owners in front of the company sign. Still editing those though. Let me know how you feel about these.
