Grouping. An approach to setting up your products for a shoot
Thanks again to Topsy Jewell, her work is so photogenic, it makes it all easy
A group of products is a set of relationships. Set up the first shot with one item looking magnificent, then add the next so that the two have a relationship. The third item has a relationship with the other two, turning towards or turning away from. Set up a set of tensions between all the products, they need to react to each other. The shot becomes dynamic and intriguing.
I used natural light, all the shots on Topsy's site are lit by window light with a reflecting board. Here's what that looks like, so you can do it yourself.
