The Making of a commercial Product Photograph

This week I spent 10 Hours on a photograph for a catalog. It was not the greatest photograph, but it was technically correct and pleasing, an excellent photograph to interest a person to buy this particular merchandise. 10 Hours! Thats a long time for a photograph. But, with that said I have spent as little as minutes to multiple days photographing merchandise. It all depends on the complexity of the photograph and the merchandise involved. Here is an example of a cover shot for Mac World, done by photographer Peter Belanger. He shot a time lapse video of this cover shot, check it out. Check out the Mac World article HERE.
