Candy Hero – Commercial Job

PDP – Outcome 2

Bradford Film School was asked to supply the American Sweet Company Candy Hero with photographs they could use on their new website.

This involved a team of us to visit their 3 different branches whereby we had to photograph the staff and certain products within the store and also studio shoots of certain products also.

I took on the challenge of the staff portraits at 2 branches (Leeds and Shipley)
Leeds store was difficult to work within as it was small, badly lit and very busy due to the time of year and time of the shoot. The staff were very lively/giddy however we did manage to get some images we were happy with. This was the hardest of the shoots. We managed to work around the bad lighting and size of the shop by testing out areas within the shop first which is why the shoot took the longest which also made it more difficult.

The Shipley store was much smaller than the Leeds store and the lighting was even worse, however we managed to find one spot which lit the staff well. This was an easier shoot as there were only 3 members of staff, the store was quiet and we knew what style of images we were after as it was the last location.

From this shoot i now feel more confident problem solving upon a job/within a location.
