External Job – Cheeky Sew and Sew (Product Photographs)
This job (the client) requires product images of her handmade garments (various products – clothes – belts – Ipad covers) for her website. We are providing the client with full size and web sized files (unpaid job, but credited). I worked on this job within a group, I have focused on the product photographs.
Within the studio (2 of us) used a large cover and smaller cove to photograph the products upon. We evenly lit the backdrop and used a large light source to light the products, we added in large white reflectors at either side to add detail to the side of the products (photographed upon a mannequin). We used Cannon camera software and Capture One throughout this shoot.
Overall we are happy with the outcome of the images. Looking at the unedited files (below) all the images have a strong consistency (which will sit well next to each other upon website page). The products themselves are easy to look at (good for consumer). We are going to edit these pictures using the colour range processes (used in previous jobs, worked efficiently) the backgrounds need tidying up and making pure white.
This has being a great learning experience for myself as it is the first time i have photographed clothing, i have learnt how to light the products and the best way to photograph them (using the software we used). I am now aware that due to creases which develop within the clothes you may need a steamer on hand (however in this case – handmade garments and didn’t have permission from client – managed to photograph as little creases as possible). Fortunately due to previous jobs i have done i am confident that the editing for this job will be much for efficient.
