Is it supposed to be a single picture like you'd see in a catalog or multiple pictures? I guess the word catalog is throwing me off.

It's something you would see in a catalog whether it be mail order or from Macy's, Target, etc.

Sears Wishbook.

so is it like product photography ?
12/10/2005 01:43:47 AM · #5
ok, so a single picture (some catalog pages have multiple pages) - no text?
12/10/2005 01:45:00 AM · #6
That's how I'm seeing it. But a Holiday Catalog could be for clothing as well, so modelled. Isn't the most popular gift underwear and socks?

I think it is quite possible to see quite a few pictures of holiday catalogs being burned from those people who are tired of getting a truckload of holiday catalogs stuffed in their mailboxes:-)

A picture that would be found in a catalogue. This would be a stylized photo in which the goal would be to want the consumer to buy the product through the image alone.

I saw it as any photo that captures the essence of the season. (Not necessarily a product). Some ideas I guess would be Christmas Tree, decorations, Santa, Sleigh etc. I think I am going to do a photo that is not a product for sale, but a front cover photo.

That is a great idea troberge! I usually dislike toy photos, but I guess I will have to make an exception when voting on this challenge. I am not sure what I will do. I will have to find a model first. I don't think that I should use my daughter anymore....everyone know who she is here.

It's something like dumping the entire contents of a department store into a telephone book-sized publication (note: telephone books in medium to large cities in the US are about 2 inches thick). The intent is to increase consumerism on everything from batteries to run the toy you just bought to outfits to wear to the holiday party...you name it, it's marketed at Christmas.

There are also holiday fliers added to our daily newspapers. These are glossy inserts from individual stores with that week's featured sale items (note: not everything in them is "on sale" meaning reduced in price...people just think so because of the format...nobody reads anymore.) The intent is to increase consumerism. In effect, however, it simply makes every newspaper delivered to my front porch from Thanksgiving Day through New Year's about 4 inches thick with ads and very thin with news. (note: people do not leave their small dogs on the porch during delivery hours for fear of losing a beloved pet to the crush of a newspaper.)

Yes, decorations show up in holiday catalogs. Trees, ornaments, tinsel, toy trains, wreaths, etc.

multi-image composition is not allowed. You can have two or more subjects in one photograph.

Heres my idea, which is a little bit different then some others and i hope it works. In clothing magazines for younger (early 20's -30's) they present their items in a much different idea (shirts framed on a wall, etc...), different from the standard sears wish book. I am going to lean more creative and present my product leaning more towards that idea..."out of the ordinary", I think it will still fit the challenge perfectly, or atleast I hope.
