On Location Jewellery Photo Shoot

On Location Jewellery Photo Shoot at the Beach!

Here at Capture Factory, we wanted to give you a little bit of insight into our most recent on location jewellery photo shoot. One of our clients requested that their jewellery got shot on the beach, and of course, we were immediately on board with the idea! On location shoots tend to be the most fun, as you are in a whole new environment and are able to experience an idea come to life with the help of professional photographers and equipment. Here are the main characteristics of an on location shoot with us and what we provide!

Models

In this particular case, the client provided their own model. However, it is very common for clients to come to us for advice on the best models to hire to showcase their products.  We work closely with a trusted modelling agency to provide us with the best models at competitive prices. We aim to satisfy the clients’ needs in terms of what they request in the physical attributes of a model. This will help set the tone for the style of the photoshoot and for the particular products. For this location jewellery photo shoot we only used one model to wear all of the jewellery. This is because we wanted to keep it simple and showcase how each piece would look in a consistent manner. We also provided a talented makeup artist and hair stylist to complete the look.

Pack Shots

On top of providing the model shots for our client, we also provided pack shots of the individual products. All of your products are shot at our Brighton HQ by our lovely and talented team. Having detailed in-studio shots of the jewellery is just as important as having an on location jewellery photo shoot. This way your potential clients are able to experience the products in multiple ways, both worn and also displayed on a clear background.

5 reasons why professional photography is important for your business

Why having professional photography is important for your business

Many people don’t realise how important investing in professional photography is for your business. We have many clients who have come to Capture Factory after trying to do it themselves and soon realised it can be a lot harder than you might think to achieve the quality you’re after. Whether it’s the equipment available to you or the knowledge of how to use it, or if it’s down to the styling to fit your vision, a professional photographer will be able to help in these areas. We explore 5 reasons why professional photography is so important for your business:

1. Standing out from the crowd

There’s an abundance of websites and businesses out there, some of which may be offering a service like yours so you’ll really want to stand out from the crowd. What better way to entice people to yours than with visuals. Beautifully striking photography with styling that suits your vision will strengthen your brand and online presence.

2. Getting found on the web

Photography can really help you get found through Google searches. You can optimize your photos on your website so they can be found through the image search results and perform better on search engines.

3. Engaging with your customers

Letting people who’d like to know more about your business and photography is an excellent way to engage with your customers. Photos of your products, behind the scenes, models wearing your clothing or jewellery, location shoots and packshots are all ways to show your customers more about your business. Photos can help you build your brand on social media and be featured on blog posts, all of which help you build a relationship with your customers.

4. Saving you and your business time

Many magazines and brochures be that online or printed require a certain quality of image which professional photography will always match and exceed. It saves you time by hiring a professional photographer because you’re handing the job over to them. While they’re photographing, you can be getting on with other aspects of your business, your photographer will know the specs needed and will always provide sharp and eye catching imagery that are ready to use online or send to publishers.

5. First impressions

It might be tempting to take photos yourself or find alternatives to hiring a photographer, but if your photos are unprofessional and don’t represent your brand this will reflect your business. It can tell your customers other aspects of your business may be unprofessional too. Your photography will be the first thing people see when looking at your website or social media, so make a good first impression!

Why a white background?

Many clients go for the white background option, also known as pack-shots, when having their products photographed. This is for lots of reasons for example, it’s a clear and concise way of presenting your products with no distractions for viewers to get drawn to. It looks consistent and neat when up on a website, plus there’s scope for comping together multiple images and text for social media. Having products photographed against a pure white background is also what many magazines and publications ask for if they want to feature them, this is so that text can go alongside the images easily or they can be grouped together with other photos.

Sussex 360 product photography for local gin supplier

Sussex 360 product photography for local artisan gin

Take a look at our Sussex 360 product photography, recently we were approached by a local gin supplier to provide them with a video and imagery for their artisan gin bottle. This product was launched in 2016, and is unique to other gin suppliers because of the way in which the gin is processed.  They make use of the unused grape juice produced by the grape harvest in Sussex. Using this by-product reduces waste and is environmentally friendly. Additional flavours that are infused in this grape-based spirit include the likes of bitter orange, coriander, juniper and many more delicious ingredients.

Check out our 360 Photography page here to find out more

Carefully crafted packaging

The bottle itself has been carefully designed and crafted teaming up with designers & illustrators to help create the packaging. They have used the elegant shape of a burgundy style wine bottle to echo the fact it’s a grape-based spirit, and it has been screen printed with a precious metal ink along with a white ceramic ink. There are lots of details to this beautiful bottle such as the illustration of vine leaves climbing up the bottle, the copper sheen of the logo and the fox design.

Capturing the details

Our brief was to photograph each bottle and their custom made brooch as they provide a gift version of the gin, miniature bottles and the fox logo as a brooch. We were also asked to create a 360 video showing the bottle turning around so you can see every angle and detail. These videos are a great way for you to really show off your amazing products.

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.

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.

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!
