Photographing a Stainless Steel Mandoline Slicer

I was asked by a friend to take some photographs of a product for his listing on Amazon.com.  If you are wondering,kitchen-elite-slicer 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.
