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.

Creative Product Photography with Penelope Hope

We are, though we might pretend other wise at times, a bunch of creatives at UShoot and do love a bit of creative product photography.

So when Nadia from Penelope Hope called in and enquired if we could get creative with the product photography for her new range of Aprons, we immediately said yes. It wasn’t until later when we’d opened up the box she sent us and had a look at them that we realised just how much fun we were going to have!

Gorgeous silk womens wear with the comfort of pyjamas by MaiMei

MAIMEI’S luxury silk women’s wear

Amber identified a niche in the market when she began working from home. She lived in her beloved pjs, boyfriend shirts and oversized jumpers – the aim was to be comfortable, however this left her feeling a little caught out when the doorbell would ring. She wanted effortless clothing that would make her feel good in body and in mind.

Having found nothing that hit the spot, she recognised a growing need for easy to wear womenswear, that’s as comfortable as it is elegant, so created a collection of tailored silk clothing that would feel like her favourite pyjamas, but look like evening wear.

Flower Power with Iris & Bee

Iris & Bee is all about flowers.

Prints and paintings and we think they have some just gorgeous art.

They came across the all too familiar problem of how to digitise their art. It can be done at home of course, set up a little studio, try and get a shot precisely head on, or perhaps artistically create a background out of some cleverly folded sheets. This however, isn’t ideal. The consistency is never quite right, and the lighting will likely be off so the colours aren’t good representations.
