We have developed a style for photographing our operating system.
We make Ubuntu the focus and any device should be shot with strong verticals and horizontals; the lighting is gradating from left to right.
On specification sheets or certification sites we have an alternative style which provides an equal balance of Ubuntu and device.
Retaining strong verticals, in this case we have turned the product creating an angled shot. The angle is specific and allows the product to sit on top of our dot patterns.
For devices with glossy displays, a semi-transparent diagonal white gradient should be applied to the top right corner of the screen, as shown in the examples above.
