View Full Version : Pearlescent plastic samples

02-09-2010, 04:46 PM
I found these plastic samples kicking around the design studio last week and thought they would make a cool abstract photo. I've tried a couple of shots, with various lighting setups. Any input or suggestions would be great...

VERY cool set! Shot 1 is the winner here imo; dig the drops and highlit edges :highfive:

Nice, very interesting idea and works but for the second shot in the dark area, needs just a tad more light, but thats just nitpicking ....

The first one is the winner for me too...love the water drops...adds to the effect. if I had one tiny niggle, I would get rid of the labelings in the first shot.
I think they would stand out better. :)

I like the first and the last shots. I agree with Casil to get rid of the labels. I love on the water sets off the colours.

very nice!

I actually think the Logo works, gives it this artsy industrial feel, to me it adds another layer. Also gives it a wonderful commercial concept, would make for great print ad. I try and look at anything from various angles, the logoless ones make great art, the logo ones make wonderful commercial shots which is a skill on its own.

I agree with Acadie. Nice work!

I see your point AL and agree. I guess my nit was that in the first shot (which I like best and the image in which I was referring) only small parts of the logo are visible and only on a couple pieces so like MA says, "If you are going to cut something...cut it, don't cut it." :)

Again FWIW, just my $0.02..... :)

To be honest..I like the third one..could see that in an ad

Thanks for all the replies,

This is what it looks like with out the logos:


I think I like 1 and 3,

I don't like the edges on the fourth shot as you can see the tooling marks which break up the colour. (I turned the samples around for my later shots).

On the 2nd shot I wish I had spaced them out equally, I didn't notice when I was shooting but it looks a bit messy....
