Creative Product Photography with Penelope Hope

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!

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.

TAG – Fine Art

Our machines make digitising art an absolute doddle.

It is no surprise then that we get quite a lot of art coming through our doors.

TAG fine arts launched in 2006. They are based in the same building as us in Islington. They have a assortment of fantastic artist using various different mediums. From sculpture to huge prints. All of this need digitising which has previously been a huge problem for them.

However, over the last couple of years that we’ve been based in the BDC we have developed a great relationship with them and now every time they get a new piece in, they wander up the corridor and pop-in.

The above is a piece by Loraine Rutt who has been making maps from clay for over 25 years. It is a piece called ‘Segment: Land and Sea’ and is made up of 24 Porcelain globe segments.

Having us so near is immensely useful for them. But the main benefit from our studio is the machines. It simplifies and speeds up the entire process for them. Making it easier and more efficient than ever before.

William Yeoward

William Yeoward is considered one of the design scene’s leading creative forces, famed for creating elegance and comfort at home. Designer of truly beautiful products including furniture, crystal, lighting and many other accessories. We love his gorgeous upholstery and curtain fabrics and soft furnishings.

They sent in five carpets the biggest of which was over two metres wide and 3 metres long. Such a vast product presents a rather obvious problem. As we helped carry the rugs in from the van we worried. These were the biggest things we had ever shot.

In the end we were worrying over nothing. Admittedly heavy, awkward but we all piled in to help. And with two people to lift and style then hold in place on our flatbed table and another to shoot it was remarkably simple.

For these we took four shots, and in post-production comped the final image together, giving the full image. For items lie this our horizontal machine is perfect and it is a relatively simple and easy process to post-produce these into one cohesive image ready for use online.

Intricate patterns aligned with intense, even opulent, colours set St Piece apart.

Air and Grace

We received a selection of Air and Grace’s newest shoes.

Claire Burrows began Air and Grace only two years ago. The concept came from the fact, that like many women she was spending an extortionate amount of money on beautiful shoes that she never wore. Never wore because they hurt. There is only so much pain you are willing to go through before you simply have to give up on them.

Thus Air and Grace was born. Claire is a graduate from London College of Fashion with over 20 years in the industry, she saw the gap an obvious gap in the market place, and through a lot of hard work she has managed to fit into it. Her shoe give your feet bounce and your toes wiggle room. The Tender Loving Air® technology provides three layers of luxurious memory foam cushioning which is cleverly hidden, so you can enjoy the feel good factor without compromising on style.

Stunning shoes that love your feet, with none of that awkward orthopaedic clunkiness.

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.

Royal Academy

The Royal Academy have been using our services for a while now. They need product shots for online store. Their shop has a range of giftware; jewellery, scarves, calendars and more. They also have a range of art catalogues and prints that need digitising. However, this poses a unique problem. Getting a high enough quality image of these can be difficult. Whilst the product itself is simple, the prints, can be large, the catalogues awkward.

The Royal Academy of Arts has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.

They have an extensive range of high-quality products from top designers and Royal Academicians. Often, but not exclusively inspired by the Royal Academy’s exhibitions, these items have been specially selected by the award-winning RA Merchandise team.

It is important that the digital representation resembles the actuality as closely as possible, meaning the image quality has to be very good.

The range of product, the required styling, along with adjusting lighting, and followed by extensive post-production would make this process long, and expensive with a traditional photography studio.

However, our machines can do it all. Our flatbed machine is especially excellent at digitising prints and fine artwork. At 111″ long and 85″ wide it is big enough to shoot all but the largest pieces, rendering a perfect cut out PNG every time in under 1 minute. Easy, time and cost efficient.
