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 professional help hired. 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?

Stylish fashion photoshoot for British designer at Capture Factory

Stylish fashion photoshoot for British designer at Capture Factory

Capture Factory recently worked on a stylish fashion photoshoot for a designer that makes these timeless garments. Ranging from dresses, jeans, jumpers and tops, the fabrics are all made from quality materials and each piece is unique. Going against the throwaway time we’re living in, this brand wants to step away from that, and design clothes that will still be worn decades from now by creating well-made classic garments. Capture Factory photographed their recent collection for their online shop, we provided both the invisible mannequin photography and model shots.

Take a look at our Invisible Mannequin Photography page here

Working with your branding

Capture Factory understand the importance of your brand’s aesthetic and continuity with your photography, so when it comes to working with us we’re more than happy to follow any specific styling and shooting requirements you might have. You might think invisible mannequin photography is the same for each brand but actually each company we work with has their own requirements with how they like their garments to sit on the mannequin and to be edited, this is so their images fit nicely together on their website making the user experience a lot easier.

Help finding a model

For this shoot our client already knew which model she was going to use for the shoot, but if you need a helping hand with finding the right model for you brand we can help source one for you. We can also point you in the right direction to a number of modelling agencies we work with and that we always recommend to our clients. It doesn’t stop there either, we can book a make up artist for you too and scout out the right location for your shoot if you wanted to take it out of the studio!

Capture Factory photograph stylish backpacks

Capture Factory photograph stylish backpacks

Check out the latest at the studio on how Capture Factory photograph stylish backpacks. This Swedish company has brought out a new range of street-style backpacks that are smart, comfortable and well-made. We were asked to shoot the bag from multiple angles along with a shot of the bag opened with props placed inside to give the customer the vision of using it themselves. Many of our clients also require a 360 video of their products, this is enables your customers to see your products at every angle possible.

Take a look at our 360 Photography page to find out more about this exciting service we offer.

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.

Fashion catwalk videos for online shopping

Capture Factory shoot a range of fashion catwalk videos

Online shopping now has a whole new experience with fashion catwalk videos. ASOS were the first leading retailers to start this trend, and since it’s been a hit for customers, this is because it shows off the garment in a whole new way. For example you can see the way the fabric flows while the model is walking, you can see the length of the clothing, and how it might fit your body shape. Last month we shot a collection of catwalk videos alongside model photography and invisible mannequin

Photography & video in one

Our client had a specific backdrop in mind, so we helped source this and it worked perfectly. It added some more character to the videos without distracting from the clothing. We had two set ups in the studio, one for taking the catwalk videos and then when this was finished we’d change the lighting and photograph the model of still photography. We had already taken their invisible mannequin and accessory shots, so these were being edited while the shoot was happening by our team of retouchers.

Some light re-touching then they’re ready to send

After the shoot, some light retouching was involved just to simply remove marks on the floor, soften the skin slightly and any noticeable creases in the garments were removed, then everything was sent off to our client web-ready for them to upload and share straight away. Capture Factory has a 72 hour turn around so there’s no waiting, and if you need your photos sooner, there’s the Capture Priority which is a 24 hour turn around!

Shooting children’s accessories at Capture Factory

Bespoke children’s accessories at Capture Factory Brighton

This week we’re sharing some children’s accessories that we shot for one of our clients. These photos are showing some fun kids crowns that have been made with printed fabrics. The studio and our head photographer was booked for a few hours, then we photographed this little girl modelling the crowns.

Model shoots and products photography

Our client wanted to have both model shots with her child wearing the crowns along with product photos. Modelled photography is really good for showing off your product and putting it into context, this can help your customers visualise using the items themselves. Then product photos are good to show clear close ups and detailed shots of your products.

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.

Cool baby clothes at Brighton photography studio

Baby clothes at Brighton photography studio

Capture Factory brings you the latest on baby clothes! For this post we’re bringing some more baby clothes and children’s wear, we’ve been busy with the little ones recently.  This brand we worked with was looking not only for some pack shots for their online shop, but some cool lifestyle images for their Instagram. With over 50K followers on their Instagram account, they wanted some professional lifestyle photographs to share with their followers.

Using props to create the photo

Our client had a clear idea of what she was after and had brought along a selection of props with her to the photoshoot. She had called us prior to the shoot for us to organise the succulents and foliage. So one of our stylists went to the local florist and arranged for the appropriate foliage to be reserved for the day.

Our client had given us a moodboard she’d created so we had a clear idea of they style she wanted. Mood boards are really helpful when it comes to a photoshoot. It helps people realise the style they want their images to have, and gives the photographer & stylist an insight on what lighting and props to use.

“Laid-back, fun & individual…” baby clothes

These are just a few of the words the designer uses to describe her original children’s and baby fashion range. Watch this space for the trendy children’s clothing!

Feeling inspired?

If you have some products and need some professional photographs taken along with the helping hand of creative ideas, give us a call! We’d love to help you take some great photos for you business. We also offer stop motion animations which are really fun to add to your website or emails. And incase you’ve not heard, we have a fantastic video production team if you’re looking to have a promo video taken.
