Shooting Fur and Lace is a Doddle with UShoot

The difficulties of shooting fur and lace and then cutting out and post-producing it in Photoshop are legendary.

With fur (or hair) you have to cut and then feather the edges, which creates and effect like the reality. It is quite painstaking and time-consuming and the end result isn’t a completely accurate representation of the product.

With lace, well there are a few options, but no shortcuts. You have to carefully cut it out.

However, with our StyleShoot machines these problems are erased. The intelligent software incorporated in the machine identifies and cuts out the background on a pixel level.

Emile et Rose

Emile et Rose was born in 2002, in the historic estuary town of Topsham, near Exeter in Devon and continues to flourish under the same family ownership.

In the beginning Emile et Rose, were apprehensive about using us. They had had so many bad experiences with photographers with so many varying results. However, that was three years ago now and we think it is safe to say they were happy with the results.

At Emile et Rose they aim to provide thoughtfully designed and complete outfits for babies, using soft comfortable fabrics that are also easy to care for.

We really love their stuff, combining traditional pastel blues and pinks, whilst staying on trend with great prints and accent colours. Using cotton-rich fabrics their clothes are soft and comfortable, stylish and completely practical; everything is machine washable.

They sent in their newest collection of clothing, gorgeous and adorable sets, simple in design, high quality garments that are a pleasure to shoot.

Olivier Baby

Olivier Baby was set up in 2011 by Emma Davison, who was shortly after joined by her sister, Alice Smith. Emma is herself a passionate knitter and as a team they design and create all the samples themselves. These samples are then put through the most rigorous quality tests by their children.

They aim to reflect the fun and laughter of their own childhoods in their deigns, instilling a distinct sense of nostalgia in many of their designs. Their shapes and lines are classic, and paired with refreshing and comforting colours. Stylish traditional, timeless designs instilled with that element of fun that is so quintessential of childhood. Whether it’s a star on the elbows or a heart on the bottom there is a little something on each item to make you smile. Importantly, all their clothes are hard wearing, soft and comfortable. So the kids look great and feel great, nothing to stop them from having fun.

This is Jo’s third visit to Ushoot Studios and we absolutely love her. It has to be said that Rockin Baby are one of our perfect customers. Jo has become almost as proficient in using our horizontal machines as we are.

This time round we faced an extra challenge in that we only had 3 days to turn around the 400 pieces that needed to be shot. All are to be placed in their brochure to be printed tomorrow (Jo started shooting on Monday!)

As it happens she finished shooting with hours to spare and we set up a system to sen images as they were shot, and fingers crossed there will be no stressed our designers at the other end waiting for content

Tartan tastic at Ushoot Studios

The last few weeks have been a rather gloriously Scottish affair at Ushoot. For a number of days we have been enveloped in a magnificent amount of Tartan courtesy of the lovely people at Scotland Shop.img-studio-news

The ScotlandShop collection is inspired and influenced by the multitude of colour to be found in their Scottish tartans, steeped in history yet still a fundamental part of the fashion industry.

They are based in the beautiful Scottish Borders and were founded in 2002 by Anna White, offering an extensive and diverse array of all things Scottish offering truly international products and services in 5 languages.

We absolutely loved working on such interesting and beautifully made product and look forward to being enveloped in more tartan from Scotand Shop soon
