An ill thought out plan!
How do you take a photo that makes a box look interesting?...get a professional in?...mellow lighting?...add a few props?...try again tomorrow!
I have been trying to take some photos of our packaging (the boxes are not too fancy...presentation is important...but not more so than the product!..so a simple approach was taken). but I have to say my attempts looked pretty boring... and as I didn't have a professional to hand...I went for the prop option.
I really hadn't thought it through...just thought if I put a couple of boxes in the paddock someone would come and investigate...a cria ideally...and hey bingo...a photo for the website...No...not that easy!
Okay I got everyone's attention...but not quite as expected..."it is just a prop Magellan it is empty!"
Like son like mother...Chaska checks them out
Inca Van Dieman Chaska...thinks that I am crazy...you can see it in the eyes!
Quintos then tries to untie the knot...just stay there Quintos whilst I change the lens...we need to be able to see the label...
Oh no...just a nose and a blurred label
He did try to be a good model...it was the photographer who failed...
How about we do without the props...some artistic shots of labels will have to do!
Where does the day go...no poo picking done today despite fine weather. Tomorrow will be a day of graft...it really must...I have to tidy up...I have some important arrivals coming at the weekend. Yes Easter-Wood Metisha and Easter-Wood Adelle are heading North on Satrurday...I really must have the paddocks clean for them (I will also try to tidy the house for Jeff and Sheila but we will see how the time goes!)
On the subject of visitors... I got a nice surprise last Friday...I really had to do a double take...a car came down the drive...and out stepped...Les and Rob from Wellground Alpacas!...Just passing on their way back from Scotland...you don't get many folks dropping in round these parts...being in the wilds and all...it really was great to see them both.
