Professional product photography of a stylish candle

Take a look at these professional product photography images of some lovely scented candles. The Capture Factory studio is very busy in the run up to Christmas, many people want to have their new products photographed and put up on their online shop for those festive shoppers. We recently photographed these beatufully scented candles for one of our regular clients. You might have seen these candles because they’ve been featured in The Guardian, Independent and Glamour magazine. They are made from a natural plant wax with fine quality essential oils, they also look sleek in the black glass pot. A great gift for somebody special this Christmas!

Use photography for magazines, social media and online shops

These shots are what we call pack shots, they’re great for online shops because they show the product off clearly and there aren’t any distractions. They are good to have as a business alongside lifestyle imagery, because magazines often also like to use images against a white background so they can put it next to text.

Kids clothes stop video animation

Making a stop motion video at Capture Factory

Take a look at this stop motion video! Recently we were asked by one of our clients to make a selection of Autumn inspired stop motion animations for their new collection. This was a fun task with outcomes our client was very happy with. They supplied us with a selection of the clothes they wanted us to showcase along with a range of Autumnal props to use. We were given a brief to follow with the type of animations that were required then the rest was left to us.

Why stop motion?

Stop motion animation is great to use for your online presence such as your social media platforms like Instagram. They are snappy and eye catching and entice your audience to stop and look a little longer at your imagery. They are simply made of many photographs that are then put together to create a moving image. Being made of so many photos means that you’re also able to use any image used in the animation, giving you lots of photography to use as you wish!

We don’t just stop at animations & Gifs, we also have an excellent video production team and are CAA approved to use our 4K state of the art drone for all of your videography needs! Take a look at our Drone Showreel here.

Handmade homeware photography for macrame planters

Capture Factory shoot handmade homeware photography for a local designer

Recently, we’ve had macrame planters in the studio for some handmade homeware photography. These planters are made by a local designer with 100% cotton rope which has all been produced in the UK. We wanted to capture the intricate knots in the contemporary macrame hangers. The designer sells these online and stocks many shops and cafes. It doesn’t stop at hangers, Brighton-designer also creates beautiful baskets which are perfect for keeping your vegetables in.

Capturing the detail

This particular client wanted pack shots of her products and provided the planters, house plants and vegetables to use as props. We shot a selection of photos for each product including an image of the full macrame hanging and detail shots of the planters to capture the knots and quality of the rope.

We’ve along the coast in Rottingdean & Cambersands shooting for a scarves designer and a lingerie company. We’ve also been shooting in hotels for a clients new range of wash bags. If you didn’t know already, we offer video production and there’s the option of using our 4K Drone for your shoot if it’s on location. This enables you to capture fantastic aerial views of the scenery around to really make your photography or video stand out.

Brighton location photoshoot on the beach

Capture Factory works on a Brighton location photoshoot

Here are some shots from a Brighton location photoshoot that Capture Factory took for a client that makes beautiful scarves. We were asked to capture some photos on a location for this particular shoot, and we’re lucky that our studio is not only so close to the sea but is also surrounded by the countryside. So we thought the beach along Rottingdean would be the prime spot for this photoshoot, as there’s some overgrown grass that’s perfect for model shots. This location also boasts stunning sea views and the beach huts are picturesque too, giving so many possibilities to keep the images varied and interesting.

Shooting children’s accessories at Capture Factory

Bespoke children’s accessories at Capture Factory Brighton

This week we’re sharing some children’s accessories that we shot for one of our clients. These photos are showing some fun kids crowns that have been made with printed fabrics. The studio and our head photographer was booked for a few hours, then we photographed this little girl modelling the crowns.

Model shoots and products photography

Our client wanted to have both model shots with her child wearing the crowns along with product photos. Modelled photography is really good for showing off your product and putting it into context, this can help your customers visualise using the items themselves. Then product photos are good to show clear close ups and detailed shots of your products.

Not only do have great photography services, we can also offer a wide range of moving image such as video production using a 4K drone, or we can create stop motion animations such as Gifs. Videos are a great way to promote a new range of clothing or products you might have coming in. Gifs are good for adding some extra interest to your social media platforms, website and emails.

Contemporary lifestyle & fashion photography

Photographing contemporary lifestyle & fashion

Capture Factory have been shooting contemporary lifestyle & fashion products for a number of clients over the years. There has been an increase in popularity for a ‘minimalist trend’ in the recent years, from the clothes you wear to how you decorate your home. It’s using the idea around consuming less and investing in better quality items that will last longer, both in durability and fashion.

Here are a few products we’ve shot for a couple of Brighton-based clients. They are a good example of items that are made well and are timeless in their aesthetic, so you’ll not need to replace them as they’ll have a long life.

Photographing with us couldn’t be easier

Whether you’re around the corner from our studio or across the country, photographing with is always easy. Some of our clients drop their products off at the studio on a regular basis if they’re local, and we can also offer a Capture Factory collection, providing you’re within a certain radius from our studio.

Many clients will send their items in the post, big or small, we receive all sorts. Just this week we’ve been photographing an exercise equipment, jewellery, models, clothing, homeware and much more! We also have a secure, reliable courier service we use to send back packages.

It’s completely up to you when it comes to your photoshoot at Capture Factory, as to whether you’d like to oversee it or not.

Model fashion photoshoot for Brighton boutique

Capture Factory shoots a model fashion photoshoot

We’ve been working on a model fashion photoshoot at the studio earlier this summer. The seasons are changing, and with that comes a different wardrobe. This Brighton boutique we worked with has a great A/W collection and came to us for their new photography. We also shot their invisible mannequin photography along with a model shoot where they hired the studio for a day, and came in with their team and a model to wear the outfits.

Creating original shots to attract customers

Every client varies their shot requirements and how they need them edited. As a standard most boutiques require a front, back and detail image for their invisible mannequin photography. This enables customers to clearly see what the garment looks like from varied angles, and the detail shot shows you the quality of the fabric and the print.

Customisable invisible mannequin

Invisible mannequin can also be edited onto a particular colour, some of our clients require a muted grey or a natural cream tone. And everybody requires a particular image size of which we will shoot and resize to their requirement. We then send both high res Tifs along with the resized Jpegs, so they are ready to upload online or onto social media, saving time for our clients.

The variety of choice with model shoots

Model shoots can also really vary between each client, sometimes we shoot against white, grey or coloured backgrounds, we recently shot for a children’s fashion brand which had a red background which looked great and stood out, we’ll share those photos in a later blog post! Sometimes models need to be cropped up to their nose so their face isn’t recognisable, but it’s all dependent on the clients and what they want.

E-commerce food photography at Capture Factory

Take a look at some recent food photography

We’ve been shooting commercial food photography at Capture Factory. We’ve worked with this brand before, and this time they wanted to create a spread of ingredients for a lifestyle shot. This was so that it could be used as a banner for their website, Not On The High Street, Amazon or any other online platform they use for selling their Biltong products.

What is ‘packshot’ photography

We also shot a number of ‘pack shots’ for them, these are images that have been shot against a white background, then we edit them onto a pure white background and create perfect product shot that can be used commercially. These type of shots are good for customers to clearly see the product without any distractions. They are clear, crisp and consistent in their sizing, white balance and re-touching. Some things we look out for when editing this type of shot, is whether there’s any dust or marks on the packaging, ensuring all the text is aligned correctly, make sure the colours of each product are all of a similar brightness, making sure they’re all exactly the same size and much more.

What is lifestyle photography?

For the lifestyle shot, the purpose of this might be to engage your customers more, make them think about your product more and imagine actually eating or using the product. These usually have some kind of story, in this case, it was to show off the delicious, fresh ingredients used in the Biltong products. The type of things we’ll look out for on lifestyle images are; making sure each image is consistent in their editing such as exposure, white balance and shadows, removing any unwanted marks such as dust, crumbs or reflections and making sure the image really stands!
