KMPD has had the super cool opportunity to do a product shoot for Uncle Funky’s Daughter!
Uncle Funky’s Daughter is a nationally recognized natural hair salon whose awesome products have been featured everywhere including ESSENCE and Ebony Magazine. I remember when I first noticed UFD’s products in college. As a graphic designer, I was very intrigued by the earthy yet urban-funk of the branding labels. The color and textures we’re dead on. Never did I ever imagine I would have the opportunity to actually shoot the products I once adored.
The word FUN, does not begin to describe this shoot. I’m starting to realize: Challenging > Nervous > Excitement > FUN! The challenging part was the lighting (of course) and controlling the white balance since the client desired a white background. The client also requested reflection on the bottom of each product. Yes, this could have been easily accomplished in photoshop, but I was going for a more authentic look. So what did I use? Good old plexiglass from your local craft store. Overall, I was very pleased with the outcome and I am looking forward to working with Uncle Funky’s Daughter again! KMPD already has some up coming projects schedules with them, so stay tuned!
