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.

5 reasons why professional photography is important for your business

Why having professional photography is important for your business

Many people don’t realise how important investing in professional photography is for your business. We have many clients who have come to Capture Factory after trying to do it themselves and soon realised it can be a lot harder than you might think to achieve the quality you’re after. Whether it’s the equipment available to you or the knowledge of how to use it, or if it’s down to the styling to fit your vision, a professional photographer will be able to help in these areas. We explore 5 reasons why professional photography is so important for your business:

1. Standing out from the crowd

There’s an abundance of websites and businesses out there, some of which may be offering a service like yours so you’ll really want to stand out from the crowd. What better way to entice people to yours than with visuals. Beautifully striking photography with styling that suits your vision will strengthen your brand and online presence.

2. Getting found on the web

Photography can really help you get found through Google searches. You can optimize your photos on your website so they can be found through the image search results and perform better on search engines.

3. Engaging with your customers

Letting people who’d like to know more about your business and photography is an excellent way to engage with your customers. Photos of your products, behind the scenes, models wearing your clothing or jewellery, location shoots and packshots are all ways to show your customers more about your business. Photos can help you build your brand on social media and be featured on blog posts, all of which help you build a relationship with your customers.

4. Saving you and your business time

Many magazines and brochures be that online or printed require a certain quality of image which professional photography will always match and exceed. It saves you time by hiring a professional photographer because you’re handing the job over to them. While they’re photographing, you can be getting on with other aspects of your business, your photographer will know the specs needed and will always provide sharp and eye catching imagery that are ready to use online or send to publishers.

5. First impressions

It might be tempting to take photos yourself or find alternatives to hiring a photographer, but if your photos are unprofessional and don’t represent your brand this will reflect your business. It can tell your customers other aspects of your business may be unprofessional too. Your photography will be the first thing people see when looking at your website or social media, so make a good first impression!

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!

Contemporary lifestyle & fashion photography

Photographing contemporary lifestyle & fashion

Capture Factory have been shooting contemporary lifestyle & fashion products for a number of clients over the years. There has been an increase in popularity for a ‘minimalist trend’ in the recent years, from the clothes you wear to how you decorate your home. It’s using the idea around consuming less and investing in better quality items that will last longer, both in durability and fashion.

Here are a few products we’ve shot for a couple of Brighton-based clients. They are a good example of items that are made well and are timeless in their aesthetic, so you’ll not need to replace them as they’ll have a long life.
