Thank you Steve. I am glad that you with such an experience find the article valuable.

25 years in photography is long time.

The main goal of that article and others that I gonna write is not only to offer knowledge about certain things but experience also.
Experience in our profession is extremely valuable. Knowledge you can learn, but some things come with experience.

As I stated in the article when I was younger and inexperienced I had to deal with a lot of "attitudes".
Trust me when I say that some photo materials that I got from some "photographers" were plain rubbish.

And after some time when I got more experienced and interested in packshot photography I even had to tell some "photographers" how to setup lighting sources so that the images are shadowless and backgrounds different from the products.

It all comes with time and experience. Today I know what I want and how to get it. I work with few photographers that I picked up along the way and that are great and I have a great communication with them.

Sad thing is that everyone thinks that they can be good at what they do and you have to be careful not to hurt their feelings.

Hope you will find some more useful stuff on my site.

Thank you
