NAME YOUR FAVOURITE PROPS.

Al­li­son: Fresh food with dif­fer­ent tex­tures, sil­ver­ware I find at flea mar­kets, and nat­u­ral light­ing. Dionna & Sean: We love ex­plor­ing or­di­nary ob­jects like fruit and flow­ers, but also cu­riosi­ties such as crys­tals and an­tique in­stru­ments.

HOW DO YOU MAKE A PHOTO IN­TER­EST­ING?

Al­li­son: It’s all about cre­at­ing a flow – let the eyes of your viewer wan­der around the shapes and tex­tures used in the photo. D&S: Play­ing with var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als and scales of ob­jects can be very use­ful when com­pos­ing an im­age.

WHAT SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT PROD­UCT STYLING?

Al­li­son: Break the rigid­ity. Over­lap­ping items, turn­ing mac­arons on their side, and break­ing up a choco­late bar will give you a chic and ef­fort­less look. D&S: When se­lect­ing props, think of your con­cept. For a Christ­mas-themed shoot, we evoked a sense of in­dul­gence with royal blue vel­vet cloth, and hints of win­ter with a bunch of dried eu­ca­lyp­tus.
