Photography 101: Marketing a Product

I mentioned recently that I'm trundling up to Tampa for a weekly photography class.  This week's assignment was marketing a product, and this was my submission.  Despite someone off-screen relentlessly trying to nip at the prop, all in all, it went well.  Many thanks to the Leggy Blonde for the location, props and unparalleled acting.  I'm sold on this product!  Care to join me in a glass? (after 5 p.m., of course)

In other news....voting officially ended last night for the SDP poll which posed the question, "Would you like to see photos from places other than Sarasota?"  I'm pleased to report there will be no recount here in Sarasota, Florida.  The overwhelming response was 'yes' with 80% of the vote.  Management has instructed the entire staff here at SDP to keep Sarasota as the main focus, with the occasional post from elsewhere, preferably within Florida.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote!

Excellent shot! Bravo!

I just don't get it. Well, I do, in a way. But as part of CDP, then it's CITY DP, not elsewhere DP... Just my opinion...

Did my vote count? Whoo hoo! I hope you get an A, great shot.

Not to try to start something but, when I started my CDP blog it was just about my town. That was in 2007. I guess like all things we want to expand and grow. If I got kicked off CDP for not staying within my town, I would really not care.

Do I know one of those models? I hope so, because now I can say that I know a model!

I like your "marketing" shot. I'll certainly be glad to have a little sip with you.

This is a great shot.

Very nice shot. It does the job of selling the product. (The liqueur, I mean, not the blonde.)

We could all name some of the very best and most popular CDP blogs that regularly wander outside the city limits. So long as you keep a good strong anchor in Sarasota, I suspect you will keep your membership badge.
