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.

Oh… my! Kidswear

Oh… my! Kidswear is a new fashion label created by Johnathon Swead and Anna Davies. The idea was to create a ‘quintessentially British brand with an eccentric twist.’ They combine simple lines with fabulous, eye-catching design details. Those striking designs on high-quality fabric make their clothing unique.

Bright colours and bold patterns. To capture this in their photography and infuse life into their product requires intense attention to detail and excellent lighting. With our machines these challenges are simplified a great deal making the shooting process smoother, more efficient and more effective.

We absolutely love this pairing of the simplicity of the cut with the complexity of design and print that makes these stand out.

Selvedge

Selvedge has been using our services for a while now, and we really love receiving products from them. Their products range from dolls, to gorgeous scarves and throws. It is really nice to have customers like Selvedge, the products are amazing, and by working closely with them, we are able to give them exactly what they want.

There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle life. All of us are inundated with textile sensation, from the moment we are taken and wrapped in our first blanket. It is a uniting aspect of all humanity and one that cannot be underrated.

It began as a small collection of textiles and designers. But has over the years grown into a haven of rarified textiles and esoteric treasures. Behind every item – whether a handmade candle or antique table linen is a story worth hearing.

The various nature of the items we needed to shoot for Selvedge was no problem with the machines. The versatility of the upright and horizontal together make what could otherwise have been a difficult and painful process quicker, and easier.

Angel’s Face – tutu cute

Angel’s Face was founded in 2007 by Keely Deininger. Keely comes from a design background and has worked in the industry for many years for brands such as H&M and Topshop. However, she really wanted to start her own business, to have autonomy and complete design freedom. Angel’s Face allowed her to do this, whilst watching her kids grow up.

This isn’t the first time we’ve shot Angel’s Face. The tutus are frilly and lacy which when it comes to product photography causes a whole range of problems. Removing backgrounds from this kind of product is, using traditional methods, immensely time consuming and difficult.

However, our Styleshoot machines automatically remove the background, meaning its easier to shoot, and has a quicker turn-around time. Meaning it’s cheaper and you get your images quicker.

A Bit More About Angel’s Face

Angel’s Face success began with the tutu – a super-soft, high-quality product which is wonderfully full of frilly nylon-chiffon layers. These beautiful skirts each come delivered in their own vintage-inspired striped hat box to make the garment a truly magical gift.

With an ever expanding collection of products, Angel’s Face has become a one-stop children’s fashion destination for all your party-wear needs! From knitwear and party shoes to hats and hoodies, the brand embodies a unique mix of fun and elegance which has made the brand popular the world-over.

Love Brand & Co. return for another Ushoot Session

It was an absolute delight to see Oliver from Love Brand &  Co. again.

He came in with a selection of new clothes that he needed product shots of at very short notice. We managed to squeeze him into a slot just in time. The reason he needed the images so quickly was he was jetting off to Costa Rica with these very same items to do their new lifestyle shoot on stunning sandy shores. We must admit we were somewhat jealous…

Love Brand & Co was founded by Oliver and Rose.

It was Oliver’s entrepreneurial spirit and design background and Rose’s heritage and knowledge of the Tropics, that led them to start a new swimwear label. Their Ethos was primarily to help save elephants from extinction in the wild. A concept they coined ‘Trunks for Trunks’. This was them expanded to include a variety of other charities that help endangered species.

The actual clothing encompasses with effortless ease the colours and spirit of summer. The beautiful clothing, with fun bright design, combined with their wonderful ethos are what make this a brand to love.

Love Brand & Co. is committed to helping elephants and other endangered species in the wild. which is why they donate 5% of all their revenue to charity.

Props to Anna & Louis

Anna & Louis is an online boutique for women and children, created and run by Isobel, who for many years worked in the fashion Industry. She spent a lot of time, day to day, searching for the perfect piece of cloth that reflects a bit of her personality for both herself and her children: smart, casual, simple, chic. Often her choices gained her a lot of compliments. However, she decided there was something missing, she wanted to spend more time working for herself and more time with her children. So, she created Anna & Louis.

Isobel is heavily influenced by her experience of the Spanish fashion marketplace and by Spanish style. She thus provides a boutique where she sources a number of great, interesting Spanish brands. With an online personal shopper section to her website she aims to provide a service to help you find clothes for any occasion or to create your individual look.

Isobel’s passion and dedication is inspiring and really shows. One thing that we found very interesting when she came in to do her shoot was her desire to use props in the product photography. This isn’t the first time we’ve had a client use props, the effect can be a simple but startlingly effective one. Here she used flowers, for example a foxglove, the white of the foxglove flower highlights the clean crisp white of the piece, whilst gently introducing the green of the stem which adds contrast lifting the image, and giving it a little more life.

Previous shoots like one we did a while ago with Quack Quack Moo, a babywear company, have also used props.

It brings the clothing to life, it gives movement and creates a dynamic element to the imagery which is refreshing when compared to the clean cut almost surgical product photography you normally come across.
