Daisy’s Milkbar is a fun and playful cafe in Sydney’s Inner West that always serves up your milkshake with a smile. The space is vibrant, the staff are always cheerful and you are instantly hit with a sense of childhood nostalgia as soon as you walk through the door. When we were approached to do all the product photography for Daisy’s new online store, we knew instantly how everything should be styled. It was important to really have fun with the products so we used props like lollies, sliced fruit, paper confetti and glitter to really set the mood.
A portable flash setup was adopted so we could remain mobile throughout the shoot. This allowed us to change the lighting setup quickly, which is really important with product photography, as a lot of the items can differ greatly in size. A prime canon glass was used to ensure that the images always remained sharp and of high quality for zoom-ins on the web store.
A huge effort was put into the styling of this shoot, with heavy emphasis placed on evoking a sense of playfulness. We really enjoyed pairing tote bags with mini pineapples, iced vovo badges with glitter and printed socks with strawberries. Who said that product photography is all about simple and minimal flat lays? We had a blast going a little bit wild on this job!
