I was asked by a friend to take some photographs of a product for his listing on Amazon.com. If you are wondering, what the heck a mandoline slicer is, or what it does, watch the video below It’s mostly used for slicing vegetables or making fries.
Taking pictures of shiny, reflective objects pose a major difficulty. The way to overcome this obstacle is to use a photo tent, so all the reflections are uniform and you don’t catch your own reflection.
This was a fun project for me, since I also got to pose and arrange fruit and vegetables around around it. I also used it to slice some potatoes into julienne strips for french fries. And I successfully did it without cutting off any fingers, believe it or not. Definitely a useful tool, for anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen.
