Never underestimate the power of test shooting for potential clients.
Spencer Jones learned this the fun way when he recently shot a woman’s stiletto while testing for still life. Not only did he land the gig, but the same image was later picked up as a cover image by internationally acclaimed author Sylvia Day, for her latest best-seller, Bared To You (click and scroll). Released in 2012, Bared To You has been published in at least a dozen languages, and confidently climbed to #4 on Amazon’s top 10 best-selling books of 2012.
When asked what he did to add greater impact to his image, Spencer described his process of elongating the stiletto heel (by at least a half an inch) and punching up the richness of the gold tip, all while “maintaining the rest of the image in black and white to help reduce any color casting.”
