Ads in the 1960s where very different from today, using popping colours which grabs the viewers attention, this technique is also prominent in photographers from the time, such as William Eggleston. I find the simplicity of the images combined with a contrasting background works really well. This technique obviously works well by having the audience look directly at the item there trying to sell. I love the aged look combined with the clashing contrast. Talking the above into consideration i will try to use this in my editing technique. Ads are an excellent place to find plenty of inspiration for photography, you can also see the links between adverts and photographers and link both back to the same generation.
