So I've been looking at dispatch blogs written by others in our team. Why? Because I'm reaching the point where i felt all my photos looked a bit boring. It's always the same layout for the basket I take pictures of, always the same slightly slanted basket shot etc. So I figured I'll check theirs out and see if there are any basket photographing techniques I can glean from them. To my fascination. one of them didn't even have the hamper open and had decided to fetch all the items off the shelves and arranged it all around, in front and on the closed hamper! Interesting! I saw this last week and had been aching to try it. And today's the day! Mwahaha!
What do you guys think? Does it make a stunning display of the Gourmande Irlandais hamper? I think it makes the arrangement look neater. Though I probably won't use this setup for any larger hampers though because I'd spending too much time running back and forth gathering the giant list of products some of our big hampers have. This beautiful hamper is going to the lovely Anne (Belfast, NI) as an extravagant treat to enjoy after her walk.
Next hamper along the line, we have a Great Taste Award Silver hamper which is leaving us today for a birthday tomorrow at Mary's (Dublin, IE)
Don't let the picture fool you. I may have positioned everything nice and neat and compact looking, but really, this hamper is pretty sizeable. Definitely not something I would want to lug around all day.... but definitely something I would be very happy to dig into!
Now, we had covered the Artisan Deli hamper in yesterday's blog, but here it is today.
I think it's because of the warm weather, it makes people want something chilled. So when they go online and see our Artisan range, with its selection of meats, it flickers on lightbulbs in people's heads and the hamper becomes an ideal fresh treat to send. Would you agree?
