Delay after delay and eventually put on my list of crap-I-funded-and-know-I'll-never-receive, the Smart Herb Garden by Click and Grow finally arrived. Unlike the many other Kickstarter hardware products that I've funded, this was only a handful of months late (In case you're wondering, more than three months late, but less than a year late, is a great success. Consider it like batting .300).
The worst part about going into Whole Foods, aside from seeing thousands of dollars of workout clothes worn by people who haven't ever been to a gym in their life, is that you get smoked on herb prices. I can't grow them in my apartment — a fancy way of saying "I don't keep up with plants very well." Click and Grow says this herb garden is made for me. We'll see how well it works in the coming months, but for now it was an opportunity to do some product photography.
I like using an overbearingly lit scene as a way to highlight whatever I'm shooting so it didn't take much to make these pictures work. Each herb garden has two LEDs that make anything that's not under its reach fall out of exposure. I also added some vignetting to catch anything that wasn't already underexposed.
All photos were taken with a Fuji X-T1 body and Fuji 23mm F1.4R lens.
