Abstract Photography – Packaging

In order to expand on this idea further, I have decided to use packaging and its content to demonstrate how photography can be abstract but can also look humorous.
I decided to experiment with this idea by doing 3 photo shoots, using 3 different types of packaging and 3 different ideas for abstract content.

The first idea that I wanted to focus on was an egg box but replacing the egg content with lit candles. The idea of using candles can indicate life (associated with eggs) but the light given out from the candles also creates a nice effect against the egg box.
This gallery shows the images that I took within the photo shoot and the final images that I am most likely to use for the final piece of this experimentation.

The second idea that I wanted to focus around was a completely separate idea around different types of packaging. This means that I wanted to try and find a very unique type of packaging that viewers will instantly recognize it’s use. For this I decided to use a sardine tin pull-ring but remove the sardines and replace it with a different product. I experimented with two different options for products, the first was chillies and the second was sunflower seeds. I wanted to try two very different options to see the different effects.
This gallery shows the images that I took within the photo shoot (including the two different contents) and the final images that I am most likely to use for the final piece of this experimentation.

The third and final photo shoot that I decided to do concerning packaging was a cereal packet which originally contained an unhealthy cereal, replaced by a healthier option. I decided to use raisins to be interpretted as Coco Pops due to their similarities in colour and size.
