Over the past couple of years I've been photographing Jileon Ltd's wellies for their website. And over the last couple of months I have had quite a bit to do for them.
Jileon is a great client of ours, giving us regular work that I can undertake in my own time and in my own way. It makes for such a relaxing change from having to make small children smile in a short span of time. Particularly since they can't get up and walk away just at the moment when all elements of the perfect image come together.
The only real challenge in photographing wellies for me seems to be the dreaded reflection that is unavoidable when photographing shiny objects using flash. But without this challenge where would be the fun?
Jileon Ltd is a Hinckley based distributor of mainly wellington boots. They do also distribute other things but typically it is just their wellies that I photograph. If you wish to order a pair please visit http://www.jileon.co.uk/. They have a great variety to choose from. I have a pair myself (the pink ones with the fur lining and I love them - I wore them loads the past couple of weeks with all that snow and my feet didn't feel cold and they most certainly kept dry).
I think you've more than successfully avoided reflection issues here. Nice work.
A great book with a section on shooting metal is Light, Science and Magic. It's a great read!
