Assignment Thirty Three:
“Hands and ___________”
Square format shot for a Brochure.
Assignment Number Thirty Three
DUE WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, BY SHOWTIME
Photographing hands can be quite tricky. Everything from manicure to knuckles to veins can be a problem. Hand models take extreme care of their hands, but for this gig the client wants ‘real hands’ holding her brand new — thingymabob. (Here is where you get to get creative. Hands holding something of your choice.)
The image is to be square, and it has a layout to follow: Compressed PSD file is here.
In addition, we are going to discuss usage and pricing. I will set up the parameters for the gig:
Two shots. The hands holding the ___________, and a detail shot (closeup) to augment the main image. Same subject, not two different shoots. Insert the images under the mask of the layout PSD and it will come through the cut outs.
A NonProfit wants the shots for a brochure as well as website usage. The brochure is to go out as a direct mail piece to former contributors. They want to use the image for a print run of 12,000 and they want to be able to use the image on the web for 4 months for the duration of the fundraiser.
The client is someone who is a bit frazzled, and you know they have some money, but not a lot. She has asked for an estimate. (You got the gig, so now shoot it and share with us your breakdown of costs.) Keep them simple, but detailed enough to have the client understand the charges.
