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.

Our Must Have Accessories for this Summer

Our Top 5 Must Have Accessories for this Summer!

Now that we’re in the midst of summer, it’s time for us to share some of our must have accessories for this season. Nobody was expecting this sudden heatwave in the UK, but now that it’s here it’s time to enjoy the warm weather and look glamorous! Here at Capture Factory we have compiled a list of our top 5 accessory essentials that we’ve photographed and that we think will help spice up all your summer outfits.

Sunglasses

This might sound obvious, but you would be surprised at how much difference a pair of sunglasses can do. It can be just what you need to make an outfit go from mediocre to stylish. Whether you are wearing the glasses to actually protect your eyes, wearing them on your head or have them hanging over the neckline of your shirt, they will for sure make an impact. They also serve a practical use, of course, for those days where your eyes just can’t take the blinding sun rays. Sunglasses come in so many shapes and sizes that you will definitely find a pair that suits you! This is why we have added them to our list of must have accessories. To find out more about the shoot we worked on for the picture below click here.

Temporary Tattoos

Although unusual, temporary tattoos have been on the rise recently. They allow you to experiment without having a permanent commitment! Temporary tattoos are very popular at summer festivals and other events where people love to stand out. They become must have accessories in the warm weather as people love to flaunt them with their fresh summer tan. You can use them subtly as a replacement for jewellery or simply as an add-on to your look. This shot below was taken by Capture Factory for a temporary tattoo company.

Foulards

These are essentially scarves for the summer. For when it reaches the lower temperatures in the evenings or for those windier summer days, it is always handy to stay a little warmer in a fashionable way. Foulards fall into your must have accessories if you want to embellish your outfit and also be practical. You can of course wear them around your neck, but you could also use them to cover yourself if you get cold, like a versatile blanket, but not as heavy! They are usually made from a thin material and come in hundreds of colours and patterns. Check out this behind the scenes video on a scarves fashion shoot at Capture Factory Photography.

Hats

When it comes to hats, not everybody will be a fan. It can sometimes be hard to find the perfect one that will suit you, but once you do you will never want to take it off! We found that the most popular summer hat is the straw hat, or just a simple cap. Hats are such a bold statement that they can either make or break an outfit. Hence the importance of carefully combining it with your outfit to complement it rather than making it too cluttered. Hats are great to protect yourself from the heat and are a great accessory, it’s the best of both worlds! The shot below was taken by our head photographer Rory for a hats brand in central Brighton.

Cover Ups

Last but not least, it is worth mentioning something for all those lucky people who will be spending some time at the beach this summer, cover ups. As the name suggests, these are simply garments that are worn over swimwear. With the temperatures rising, cover ups are great for when you don’t want to fully dress up after the beach or pool but are happy to lounge in something more than just a bikini. You can stay fresh by still looking stylish, what could be better? The photograph below is from a fashion e-commerce shoot taken at our Brighton studio.

In the summer, it is quite easy to feel limited when it comes to composing an outfit as layering is not an option. This is why accessories are a great way to spice up your outfits and make you feel fashionable! If you would like to have a look at our latest on location swimwear shoot click here

Behind The Scenes of Our Photoshoots!

What truly goes on behind the scenes of our photoshoots?

Having a professional and passionate team working behind the scenes of our photoshoots is very important, you would be amazed at the amount of detail that goes behind the scenes of every photoshoot. This is in order to get the best results. Here at Capture Factory we make sure to deliver to the highest possible standard. It’s not as easy as it seems and it is certainly a lot more time consuming than you would think. We thought it would be fun to reveal to you what goes on behind the scenes of our photoshoots!

Prepping

From the opening of packages to the final product, we try to deliver our best efforts. Our team always start by carefully opening up and organising all the clothes that gets sent to us. It then gets hung up in correlation to what is going to be shot first. First of all, before anything is shot we receive clear instructions on how the company wants their clothes to be presented in the image. We then go ahead and steam all the items of clothing to ensure that they look flawless and lack any imperfections! 

Styling the garments

The process changes based on whether the clothes are worn by a model, shot on a mannequin or pinned on a white board. If we have models that have come in to wear the clothing, we have professional help hired with them. From makeup artists to hair stylists we want to hire the best team to contribute to the behind the scenes of our photoshoots. We also work closely with a trusted modelling agency to provide us with the best models at competitive prices. Lighting, sets and good equipment are also of major importance as these elements are the basis to a good quality photograph.

Attention to detail

It’s not enough to just throw the clothes on a mannequin, you need to meticulously position the clothing correctly in response to what the client wants, get the perfect angle and style the items so it looks at its best. The attention to detail could be as little as a crease in a T-shirt or a label poking out. You need plenty of time and patience to create something that will tick all the boxes and satisfy clients requests, which is why it’s best not to leave booking a shoot until last minute.

Thoughts?

We hope this gave you a little bit of insight of the behind the scenes of our photoshoots, what you see in the final result doesn’t always come easy! Were you expecting this much level of work? Would you like more behind the scenes content from us? We are always busy and working hard on something here at our Brighton HQ. You can book your desired photoshoots with us anytime.

Scarves lookbook photography in our Brighton studio

Scarves lookbook photography

Some of our favourite lookbook shoots is this scarves lookbook photography! Those shoots are always so different and varied.

We had a very exciting time this week in the studio shooting a new lookbook for a local scarf designer. She created intricately illustrated printed scarves and wanted edgy images to present them. Therefore, we wanted to create something completely magical and different from all the others to showcase her designs.

Our stylists came up with various ideas of how to portray them best. We ended up throwing scarves all over the studio as our beautiful model posed below. We have the best Nikon equipment which allows us to quickly capture many images. This is very important as we were creating movement with the scarves but still needed to capture high quality images without any blur.

After the styled shoot we went on to photograph her products for use on her website, with both model shots and product shots to really show off her designs.

Another great watch shoot in our photography studio

Interesting watch shoot

Check out this great watch shoot we have done! We have a steady tide of product photography that constantly flows in and out of our busy Brighton studio. This week we’ve been busy catching up with the rather large backlog of trial shoots that have suddenly sprung up from nowhere. No complaining, we love being busy! 🙂

Watch shoot 1

Based on the quality of past watch photography trial shoots we have done, a watch designer asked us to shoot their beautiful watches. From the moment we opened the boxes we knew that we were in for a challenge. When it comes to watches there are so many elements to be aware of. For example: reflections, textures and the overall quality of workmanship that need to be captured in such a specific way.

Thankfully, watch photography is an area we have a good deal of expertise in. Our dedicated product photography shoot area is the perfect place to shoot them in. We were happy with the results and so was our new client!

The delicate art of shooting baby cosmetic products

Shooting baby cosmetic products

A Yorkshire-based baby cosmetic products company asked us to shoot their brand new line of organic, paraben free baby shampoos. In our experience, companies that deal in baby products are especially caring in how they conduct business. Also, they have a very specific idea in how they want to represent their products, what we like.

Baby cosmetic products

We shot the products under soft lighting in our dedicated product photography area. As recent parents, we understand how important it is to use the right products for your child. This is way we took extra care in making the images look great!

At Capture Factory we take great pride in making quality products look as good on screen as they do in their packaging and these baby cosmetic products are no exception to that rule.

Giving a big box of bespoke bags the Capture Factory treatment!

An  enormous box full of bespoke bags

Working in fashion photography can be unpredictable at times but in the very best sense of the word. There’s no telling what the next big thing will be and what challenges they pose to shoot. Last week, one of our London based clients sent a huge box full to the brim with bespoke bags.

Bespoke Bags 1

Sometimes it can be challenging to capture something so exquisitely designed looking as good as they do straight out of the box. But that wasn’t a problem with these bags, especially for our experienced product photographers!

We styled, shot, edited and sent off the big pile of bags before the day was over and our clients were especially happy with the images.

Glasswork photography in the Capture Factory studio

Glasswork art instead of fashion or gifts

At Capture Factory we don’t just shoot for top end fashion brands and retail companies.

We do a lot of work with local artists, designers and craftsmen of all disciplines. All sorts of photography related requests are our job and no challenge is too big for us.

A local glassware artist asked us to do the photography of his bespoke pieces of art.

The dreaded ‘G’ word conjures up images of reflections and irregular surfaces, all of which would usually pose a challenge for a photographer.

But our Capture Factory team was able to get these beautiful, unusual objects looking as good on screen as they do in person.

Our client was really happy with the imagery and we enjoyed mastering the hurdle while gaining new experiences.

We’re always looking for new challenges to and look forward to meet new clients.  If you’re interested in getting some professional images done for your company then feel free to contact us:

Lovely baby shoes we shot in our Brighton photography studio

Product shots of baby shoes

Every week at the Capture Factory we photograph something new and exciting and this week has been no exception. A London based designer approached us in order to ask us to shoot some of their very classy and adorable baby shoes.

Unfortunately for the company, they weren’t happy with the product photography service in London by another studio. But that all changed once they looked further afield to our product photography studio in Brighton!

After a quick chat on the phone they have sent us some samples which were quickly and meticulously shot, edited and sent back to their head office within 48 hours and we are pleased to say that they were ecstatic with the results!

Here’s what the company itself said about the images:

 

“I have been using the image of the red shoes and I just wanted to drop an email to say thank you for an amazing photo. You really made my product look like a million dollars. Wish I could shoot the whole collection again!”



We pride ourselves on being able to offer our valued clients a wide range of photography services. We are always glad to see that they are happy with our images quality and our professionalism.
