Kai, what is your honest opinion about cosmetics still life?
The world of beauty, wellness and luxury exerts a certain attraction on me. The elegant package design, the value and sublime appearance – it’s my goal to make this experience one with which people reward themselves. Every human being is worthwhile enough to take care of themselves in a special way and show their unique personal characteristics. How exactly do you do that?
Perhaps more than usual, the surfaces are important. I think of glass and chrome or pearl effects. Highlighting these effects makes the difference. Can you reveal a few secrets?
Surprisingly, for product shots of cosmetics, large support constructions are sometimes necessary. In order to get nice reflections on the surfaces, the light panels must be quite big. It’s hard to believe because many of the products are usually rather small. In order to achieve an optimal look, I use special tools to pimp the creams and liquids. This is somewhat similar to food styling.
