I got them today. And before I go on, I must tell you although I've wanted to learn to become a good photographer (at one point even signing up for photography lessons but never took them), I am a point-and-shoot-with-an-instamatic-camera photographer. And from my advertising agency days, know an enormous amount of time and care go into a professional photo shoot. You could spend hours setting up the shot, playing with angles and lighting and who knows what all the real photographers must do. Anyway, on with my tale ... I took the shoes out of the box, tried them on and immediately thought I need to let you all see what beauties they are. And here's the shot:
You are going to laugh when you find out how I set it up. The backdrop is a dust cover for a J.Crew handbag. It's propped up against our coffee maker on the kitchen counter. I put my digital cam on the Text setting with soft flash and this is the third shot I took. Think the whole shoot of 4 photos took about 5 minutes. What do you think, not too bad?
