Recently I did a photo shoot for this awesome gift store in Ferntree Gully. Get in for your last minute gifts, avoiding the big shopping centre crowds.

For the photo techno nerds, most shots were done with a Canon 580EX II Flash on a stand set to Manual and firing either into an umbrella or a small pop soft box. I gelled the flash to match the lighting in the store to get a more natural look. I chose to shoot at a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field and with the products as they sat in the store to move through them quickly. The old ‘shoot on a white background’ thing would have been too time consuming and didn’t suit the warm and fuzzy feeling the shop gives you when you shop there. More photos will be done of the store and its owners when the Christmas rush is over and when the store is re-tiled out the front.
