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.
