The idea came just from the color of the watch.. so white+ watch= white rabbit. This is the first picture I thought of when I started thinking about product photography. I got this Q&Q watch, just for me to wear and it inspired the whole photo.
I went all out for this image, getting a blonde wig and all :)
This is an exception in my image making process, just because it evolves photoshopping an element in the pic. Yes, you guessed it, the rabbit ears. I had a few options:
1. Killing a rabbit and taking it's ears
2. Order from Germany the dog snack bunny ears
3. Photohshop them inside
I went for the photoshop approach because I didn't want to hurt a sweet rabbit, and because I'm trying to step out of the "creepy" aesthetics, as I am trying to make my art and product photography more approachable. Therefore, soggy falling down dead rabbit ears would of maybe been a turn off.
My original idea was using feathers, I thought they would add some fluffiness on which I could place the ears but it didnt work out. Here are pics of the before and after.
I used a stock image and took the ears from it. The feather approach was not working out, so
I than took another shot of my mouth in another angle, with some cotton balls inside, to achieve the fluffiness effect. Using a fur brush I than drew on the picture to give it a realistic effect.
Please write me what you think of this image or comment the post, your opinion is important :)
