As I was gathering props for this photo shoot, I didn't want to dwarf this short cabinet by placing artwork on the wall. So I considered shooting from a different perspective. I placed the camera close to the cement floor and put the props in the foreground with the main subject behind them. I found that shooting from this perspective is helpful when you don't have the right wall art for a product shot and when the props are full of texture and fun shapes. The image below illustrates my point: the artwork on the wall distracts me, drawing my eye upward rather than to the cabinet. The second image seems more balanced and focused. Which do you prefer?
