I purchased a new handbag a few weeks ago. Actually, I’ve bought three new handbags in the last couple of months. Shocking, I know πŸ˜‰


This most recent bag was one I picked up at my local markets. I had a discussion with the stall owner about photography and as some of you may remember, product photography is something that I really enjoy. I like seeing the details in things and bringing those out, seeing the beauty in them.

And so I was inspired to photograph this handbag one weekend and a tried to achieve a look to the photographs that was more singular, focusing completely on the details – I feel like these are images that could be used as backgrounds for a website, as well as advertising how well-made the bag is, the attention to detail, the quality and luxurious feel.

As usual, I used my Olympus OMD EM5 camera with the 60mm macro lens (and also the 17mm lens for the full product shot).

If you’re interested, the bag is available online here – it is the Anjelica bag, in Stone. You can also see the types of photos the vendor uses to advertise the bag.

Happy weekend!
