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.

Christmas lifestyle photography at Capture Factory

Capture Factory shoot Christmas lifestyle photography

Christmas lifestyle photography is something Capture Factory love doing! It’s usually done quite ahead of the festive season so that our clients have the photos all ready to add to their website before the height of the shopping season. These photos were taken for one of our favourite clients that design personalised gifts such as homewares and baby clothes. We look forward to when they come to the studio because there are so many lovely things to photograph and we can get creative with them.

Creative and fun

Lifestyle shoots are usually overseen by our clients, this is so they can make sure the styling is how they envision. Often our clients will bring along a selection of props they feel will be suitable for the shoot, sometimes we are asked to source the props for them by our in-house stylist. This can be anything from finding the perfect paper or foliage and going into town to collect them, to scouting out the best stone backdrops to be used for a more natural look perhaps with jewellery for example.

Why lifestyle photography

Lifestyle photography is kind of in the name, it’s styling the products to help people imagine the objects in their life. So you might put the items into context like the above image which has kitchen aprons surrounded by tasty ingredients. Or the photo below where a cosy scene has been created to give the feel of a warm Christmas fireplace with a personalised sack of presents waiting to be opened by Olivia!

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.

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.

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.

Jewellery photoshoot Brighton studio

Jewellery photoshoot Brighton studio

Take a look at our recent Jewellery photoshoot Brighton studio. We had a lot of fun on this! This one was with a regular client of ours and she needed so promo imagery for a new range of jewellery.

Modelled shots

First up was to photograph the models wearing some of the products. There were some great prints that worked perfectly as a backdrop, so we used that for one of the models to stand in front of to show off the jewellery, scarves and homeware.

Lifestyle garden show

Then there was the themed image, where for this, the new collection our client was launching was based around gardening. So she wanted the set up to resemble a garden show competition, which you can see in this photo below.

Jewellery packshots

Finally we shot the jewellery as ‘pack shots’ for the online shop. These are photographed against a white background. Our editing team work their magic to create images that are perfect for customers to see the product clearly.
