No announcement yet.

I don't think whoever did the photo actually uses the product.

    Order not-withstanding, there are quite few people on the forum that could have done a better job. The pedals are all askew, they used way too wide of a lens, way to close to the product, the lighting is uneven, with odd highlights on the outer pedals and no highlight on the center pedal. Notice how you see the inner sides of the two outer pedals? The are even a little distorted being on the edges of the frame. The masking/cutout seems decent but even the gradient choice is super basic. Probably thrown on a table and snapped with a cell phone.

    On the other end of the spectrum, compare to a Boss photo shoot: Even lighting, everything is square (arrangement and perspective, etc.)

    It is the little things that matter. But, I am guessing that the promo department at Roland has a tiny bit more money to invest than Azor.

      Everyone who knows what a gradient ramp is, take one step forward.

      Not so fast, Boogner.

      The most popular thread I've ever made was 1) a joke and 2) based around literally the most inane/mundane question I could think of. That says something about me, or all of you, or both.

        Keep your day job. I never said it was a pro shot. What I did say was the reasons color wise (typically) for objects based on color and background in many cases. Troll along...
        The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

          You would be shocked at how many companies contact me for ecom projects that have taken their product photography with cell phones.

            Aesthetically I think the blue anywhere but the center is a fail with a black and grey box on grey background. Order is the least of my issues here.

              Potentially a valid point, if that background existed in physical space and not as a purely digital replacement for whatever they actually shot against.

              But alas.

                  I agree with Bogner.

                  It was probably some marketing manager just trying to make it look good and obviously doesn't play guitar themselves.

                  They should have just showed the pedals and not had them connected...then the order of the pedals wouldn't have mattered.
