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.

Invisible Mannequin Womenswear Shoot

The Invisible Mannequin technique is very popular amongst our clients. Invisible Mannequin is used to show the shape of a garment on the body- but without the distraction of having a model! It is also a very cost effective method to show garments!

This image shows a selection of photographs from the Website of one of our many regular clients. We usually shoot for this client between once and twice a month, so we are familiar with how they like their garments to look. Through vital checks at every stage, we at Capture Factory can ensure that we are handing our client a perfect image everytime! We have to make sure that the photograph is true to the colour and the shape of the actual garment. For this particular client we provide a front, back and detail shot!

Exquisite fashion location shoot in the heart of Sussex earlier this year

Model shot from a fashion location shoot for a designer glove brand

Location shoot

Sometimes we have the chance to come outside of our beloved studio and do a location shoot.

Yes, we love our little studio, with its different areas for photoshoots, editing and chilling. And yes, this is our main work place. But this time a designer gloves brand asked us to do a fashion shoot for them and they asked for a special location.

Fashion location shoot glamourous

When using a location different from the usual photography studio, you have the chance to get your imagery even more outstanding and appealing for your customers. As always, it depends on how you want to present your products.

 

Fashion location shoot outdoor

For this shoot we chose a beautiful manor house in the heart of Sussex. The location was just perfect, because it gave us a lot of options to capture pictures conveying different moods.

Childrens wear shoot, the trials of photographing babies

Always great to do a childrens wear shoot

When we hear the ever chipper tones of Tracy’s warm Scottish accent we are filled with excitement and anticipation. It can mean only one thing: a baby or childrens wear shoot!

childrens wear shoot 1

The photography of babies and children takes a bit more mental preparation than our regular everyday fashion shoots. Setting up lighting and dressing sets is second nature to our in house stylists and technicians. The Rotalux lighting is finely tuned to accentuate the subjects features and illuminate the garments we’re due to shoot.

 

These are all things we know well at Capture Factory. However, there is a variable in photographing garments for Tracy which is not so second nature for us. That is the inclusion of lots of infant models.

Shooting with children and babies

Children do not take direction the way our models sourced from agencies do. They’re too full of free will with a very short attention span and defiant nature. This poses a challenge which is now becoming a more frequent occurrence in the studio as we participate in more baby photoshoots and we love it.

Armed with an arsenal of sweets, toys, bubble machines and squash our team keeps the little ones entertained and engaged while Tracy and Capture Factory photographer Rory do their best to capture the kiddies in the perfect pose.

childrens wear 3

We’re glad to say that we pull it off every time and this Brighton based children’s-wear designer returns periodically to unleash a fresh load of babies, toddlers and infants on our studio and keep us on our toes because the images look amazing.

You can see the delight in the mum’s faces which is really nice for our team to see. The children rather run around in circles haemorrhaging jelly babies from mouths and limbs.

We love the challenge and the end results have us wincing at how cute the mini models look in their snappy outfits for days during the editing process. We also occasionally get to polish off the leftover sweets which is always welcome, but we relish the silence in the studio for at least a day after the event.
