One of my assignments today was to photograph a tiny electronic device. What makes this device unique for the customer is it has an extended temperature range where it can function safely. Did I mention it is also a tiny device? So to give some sense of scale and to convey the extended temperature feature, I photographed it next to a lit match. That great texture in the set comes from one of Lori’s cast iron frying pans. So did the client love it? Well not exactly. He agreed it was a great shot, but worried about the connotations of their parts catching things on fire. Back to the drawing board. Speaking of drawing boards, the entire top surface of the chip was done in Photoshop since the real parts have a part number and date code, not the Halo logo.
