After learning about product photography, I decided to take what I learned and create a Pink Monster Energy Drink ad. I was in the Tetons and my friend had brought a monster with him. I asked him to borrow it while we were parked and I went over to the shrubs and stream to take some photos of it. All I had was my camera, a tripod, and my monster. I first went and found some logs and posed the can on the log. I came up with this shot.

It turned out great, but it was a bit boring in my opinion. I decided to move to the stream and slow down my shutter to get the moving water in the background. At first, the monster can was by itself, but then there were some leaves that were the same exact color as the can. I grabbed them from the ground and arranged them around the base of the can to add more color and contrast to the photo. It is always good to step back or turn around when taking a photo, you may receive different inspiration by doing so. Overall, I am happy with the way my ads turned out. All I had to do in post-production was add the logo and edit the lighting and colors. This is how the final product turned out!
