behind the scenes: faking it

If everything could be shot on distressed wood, I think it would make everything THAT much more appealing! I'm not sure what it is, but it just texturally makes us happy. We photograph a brand that calls for a wooden dock "like" background, so seeing that we don't have a studio on the water and one can't magically appear, we fake it! Nothing a few old boards, some blue fabric and strategic lighting can't help.

{Love the distressed wood} 

{Lighting through double-paned glass for a scattered natural light effect} 

{Hints of blue}

{An older shot we have of a product from the brand, so you can see the final result!}
