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.

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.

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!

How we create invisible mannequin photography

First up, our client delivered their garments to our Brighton studio, we then unpack, prep and steam the items so they’re all ready for photographing. Next, we start dressing our mannequin, we have an excellent team at Capture Factory of photographers, stylists and re-touchers. Our stylist makes sure the garment looks great on the mannequin, so there aren’t any strange folds, everything is symmetrical and it looks as perfect as possible.

Efficient, professional & friendly team

Then our photographer takes the necessary shots, some clients like a front, back & detail of each garment. Using industry standard software and an efficient workflow throughout the studio, these images are then instantly updated onto all of the Macs at Capture Factory, ready for our team to start working their re-touching magic. Re-touching can range from de-dusting, making the image symmetrical and perfect, colour adjustments and much more. They edited images are then ready for checking by one of the team before sending over to our client. Our workflow is efficient and precise, we always make sure to have the photographs ready to send within 72 hours.

Every client has different requirements

From tailor made suits to casual jackets and trousers, or accessories such as bow ties, we’ve shot it for them. Each client has specific requirements when it comes to styling, photographing and editing for them. This is usually determined by their website, for example the size of the image, whether the product will be against a white background or a chosen colour. This blog post demonstrates examples of products being photographed against a different to colour to white.

Shadow? Invisible mannequin? Folded?

Some other requirements for product photography might be whether our client would like a shadow in the image or to keep it without. Perhaps it’s a product that would benefit from having a reflection. Other things to take into account when it comes to photographing clothes, is whether this will be done as an invisible mannequin, laid out flat, folded or on a hanger. Some people like to mix it up and some prefer to keep to one method. It might be, that the garment needs to photographed both ways, such as folded and invisible mannequin, because it may come in packaging that needs to be shown off.

We’ll listen to your requests, or if you don’t know what you want to do yet, with our expertise and experience we can give you some guidance if need be. We’re always happy to help!
