Towards the end of 2010, Aquapac organised a photo shoot for our 2011 range and we thought it'd be interesting to give you a bit of a behind-the-scenes peek at how we got the shot.

|The original idea for the shot|
Dave Willis, the photographer we commissioned, tells us how he made our map case, which could have been a boring run-of-the-mill composition like the one on the right, into something far more exciting and vibrant.
"Map cases are great products that we all use.
Product photos can be a challenge but we used a combination of location, unusual camera angle and some creative additional lighting to do the product justice.
The Kaituna map case is waterproof to 5 meters so we took in the river and got it wet! Then we made it big and bold with a wide angle lens to make it the centre of attention.
We added some off-camera flash to brighten it up and add some highlights, and placed a person in the background to add the human touch.
The combination of authentic location, environment, creative lighting and attention to detail has resulted in a shot that shows off the product and gives a feel for how well it does it's job."
