I was approached by Jenson at JN designs to photograph a new set top box they had manufactured. This was a very tricky assignment for a few reasons.
1. The brief was for a black perspex product to be photographed on a black background
2. The contours of the product needed to be shown
3. The mockup had nothing inside it but it needed to look like a working product.
I used a white reflector above to create a white pattern on top of the box to give it a bit of separation from the background, also to show the curves of the unit.
Later when editing the image, the blue text was added to the front with an outer glow to give the impression of being lit by LED’s.
