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 Top Tips on How to Enhance your Jewellery in your Photo Shoots

How to enhance your jewellery and make it look its best in a photo shoot!

When it comes to enhancing your jewellery in a photo shoot, it’s important to think about the details in order to make it look its best. Other than the obvious technicalities such as lighting, angles and focus, it is always wise to think about how to make your product look fun and desirable. Here at Capture Factory, we are constantly having different and exciting jewellery photoshoots. This has given us the idea to compile some top tips on how to enhance your jewellery through photography!

Background

Backgrounds play a big part in jewellery photo shoots. Is it going to be plain or interesting? Will it be an in studio shoot or an on location shoot? Is it going to be in or out of focus? The background sets the tone for the photoshoot and should represent the style of your product. It shouldn’t be too fussy or take away the attention from the actual piece of jewellery, but it should help make it look as gorgeous as it can be! Perhaps it could include the same colour tones as the product, colours that enhance your jewellery, or even some crazy patterns! Here are some examples of a location shoot we had at the beach to showcase these beautiful pieces.

Props

Props can either make or break your product. This means you should choose wisely and not just fill the image with un-needed clutter. Props could be as simple as a necklace stand or, alternatively, they can make the image really interesting and be contrasting in colours and shapes to your products in order to make them stand out. You could make them really bold such as using glitter or other large components in the background to enhance your jewellery. The most important thing is to have fun with it and use them creatively to make your photos stand out from the rest!

Models

Before thinking about shooting any of your jewellery, you should decide wether you want your jewellery to be worn or simply laid out on a set. Models are a great way to showcase how well your jewellery can look when its actually on and they can really bring your jewellery to life. Models can play around with the products, enhance your jewellery and show how versatile it can be. People love to see what the jewellery will look like before they buy it, so models can really increase people’s desire to purchase the jewellery!

Makeup and Outfits

In the case that you decide to use a model for your jewellery shoot, you have the possibility to go crazy and try out all sorts of different make up looks! You could be simple and subtle so that you place the main focus on the jewellery or you could go with a dramatic look to add depth to the image. A very important factor however, is to always hire a professional makeup/hair stylist for these types of shoots, as you want this to enhance your product and make it look polished, not inelegant and amateurish. The same goes for the outfits that the model is wearing. You can style your jewellery in all sorts of different ways depending on the look that goes with it.

Poses

Say you are modelling rings, or bracelets etc. You ideally want the hand gestures of the model to complement the products, and not make them look too dull. Trying new poses can really give the client a new perspective on your product and enhance the look of the jewellery. It is also advisable for whoever is modelling your jewellery to have a clean and polished look and have well kept and painted nails for example. Nobody wants to see pretty jewellery on an unkempt hand!

To sum it up…

Taking all these details into account will really help in making your jewellery look great! Having professionally taken pictures of your products is essential in making the jewellery look polished and of high quality. Capture Factory can offer all sorts of shoots for your products. Our team will take all your requests into account as well as offering you advice and make your jewellery look the best it can be!

Great images from our super exciting fire car shoot!

Fire car 1Such a cool fire car shoot at the airport Fire car 2 Fire car 3

We had the exciting privilege to shoot a new range of rescue and fire car vehicles at Shoreham airport! Being Brighton based photographers it was nice to work within the local area.

Our Clients sent us products from all over the country in order to shoot them in the studio. It was great to mix things up a bit. We took the lights, cameras and our team outside of the studio for this location shoot.

We loaded up our new Elinchrom litemotive 190cm softbox, multiple elinchrom ELC heads and reflectors and shot for the whole day.

Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better day to be on location! It was blissfully sunny and we could manage to snap some great shots.

The sun did raise a few issues, however, and not just sunburnt shoulders. 🙂

Our head photographer Rory had to get creative when finding a solution to light glare on the macbook screen, and ended up using a prop box, which turned out to be the perfect size to create enough shade!

Creative lookbook shoot for a designer scarf brand

We had much fun doing a creative lookbook shoot

Creative lookbook shoot for designer scarf brand 1 We recently did a creative lookbook shoot shoot for a client, photographing their truly beautiful luxury silk scarves.

The scarf designs were inspired by the surface and texture of concrete. Therefore, our clients used handmade concrete tiles for the backdrop. Our stylists hung up the tiles from the studio ceiling using fishing wire to create the illusion of them wafting.

The hanged concrete, combined with some creative studio lighting and with the use of coloured light filters, created a visually interesting backdrop for the shoot.

No matter how large or small the project may be, whether it’s on location or in the studio – we always find a way of making your ideas come to life.
