Photography 101


Lets face it we all believe at some point in our lives that, "We can do that!" But, delegating to others that actually know how to do 'that', is usually the better course to take. Talking here, about capturing images that are really good. Professionally good. Better yet, great. It comes down to cost, and we understand that for people not in the business (Advertising Agencies, photography, Commercial Ad Agencies...) are often shocked by what it can cost for a professional photoshoot. There is a huge difference in believe or not your phone's picture quality and a professional photographer's high-end digital camera. Really. I am not saying you could not get a decent shot of your product, but not industry standards for selling online.

Product Photography in New Jersey | Our Studio P.

The 'P' is for Photography. Our Studio Productions AKA OSP Photography has been around for quite a while. Going through the changes, a bit painfully to digital many years ago. Once upon a time there was film. LOL. We have loved digital from the first capture we made. Loved it. 

osp blog post

IF YOU are a novice, a new entrepreneur starting up a small business selling on Amazon or any other online store, you need, absolutely need GREAT photography. It is the single most important element you need to be successful. Put the cost of photography in your business plan, along with all the other costs of selling your product. The image is what sells. The image is the key to a click to buy or not. Oh, yes the price of your product is important too. If your product looks as good as it is, and the image you use online is a great quality photo it promotes your brand right along with it.

Product photography in New Jersey is alive & well. At least in our Scotch Plains based studio. As most businesses we definitely hit a few slow times, but when this happens we still have lots to do.

Digital photography creates tons of GB's of files/images to store. Filing them for easy retrieval is quite a task. Many hours are spent browsing through hundreds of files for rejection and for storing. We find things to do, when shooting is slow. Thankfully the last year has been great, and looking forward it seems to be a trend.

Another great thing is meeting new people, selling new upcoming cool products, like: https://www.gentletot.com/. We recently had a photoshoot with this company's owner, creator and the shoot was creative and we captured some really nice images for their new website. Check them out.

Every day when we open our doors to our photo studio, we smile. We love what we do for a living, and it shows in our photography. At least we think so. LOL. As business owners in our photography business for over 25 years, we give our clients commitment to every product we photograph. Some graphic services are done here in our studio. Like pure white backgrounds with or without paths, shadows for the extra realistic feel. Retouching for corporate portraits, color correction by the numbers, and other manipulations.

Pricing is as custom as our photography is. Pricing for products is started by a discussion of your project and your vision. For an e-commerce launch we have a guide line of prices we can send to you. But, since every product is different, from rugs to diamonds pricing needs to be well thought out. Pricing for advertising / commercial work has another consideration; usage. Do you need a full buy out? Do you need a usage agreement? These are just some things to consider on both ends.

Photo shoots with ad agencies are very different these days. With virtual software we can pretty much be at a shoot together whether you are in Florida or California, or for that matter anywhere in the world. As long as there is internet. 

In the past, account executives, art directors and sometimes the client were often on set for the shoot. It was a time of interaction, actual face time and getting to know one another. Relationships were built and usually an ad agency - photographer connection was made. Knowing many of our clients for over 30 years at this point is common for us, and other studios. 

Now in 2018 not so much with the gathering at the photo shoots. Even though we are extremely easy to get to, from anyway in the tri-state area, most clients do not choose attend the shoots. E-mail digitally delivery of images is extremely efficient and easy. We use WeTransfer for our digital deliveries: http://www.wetranser.com.  Our clients find this very easy to use.  :)  

Our New Jersey photography studio is a welcoming place for our clients to visit or to stay for the shoot. Of course free Wi-Fi, free parking, and great restaurants in our area. Come for a visit (By appointment only) or schedule a shoot. We are here!

One of the great benefits of being a shooter of products, is meeting new people, learning about new products, and innovations of the creative thinkers. Whether it's pillows or pills, as a photographer I know lighting is KEY. You have a vision of what you want to see for your product's image. You've thought about it in your dreams, looked over other websites to find the style, the final appearance your are looking for, and now you need a professional photographer, and graphic team to complete your plan. 

Very important point here is; this product we are posting on our OSP blog page (that we photographed), is awesome! It works! Getting to try new products is pretty cool too.

Lighting, the Essential Tool of Professional Photography

 Details are in the Lighting

Grain & Texture


The importance of professionally lighting any product cannot be stressed enough. Can you or your mother take a picture, well yes of course! Will the grain and color be captured accurately? Maybe not so much. 

Our Studio Productions is using this image of a wood table with square metal inserts as an example of how lighting can bring out detail. Here the wood grain is very important. The color of the wood is another aspect of selling this table to a customer. It needs to be accurate and look fabulous! Product photography can be very exciting. Even photographing a screw or door hardware, by using lighting to emphasize the beauty or importance of the subject matter.

Professional Photo Lighting is Not a Template

e-commerce photos

white background white background yes, white...

While most commercial photography is creative, you would be surprised just how much a simple product shot / capture / image / picture can be.  First of all the product can be styled in such a way that, as it should draws the consumer in for a closer look. Our Studio Productions uses flash photography lighting to capture all the important details of an item. While literally anyone with a camera can shoot a picture of a product, but with e-commerce you need a professional photographer with the lighting skills to really see details, and with zoom capabilities. High resolution is also important so your photo can be blown up, zoomed into and keep it's resolution. Color is another extremely important feature we an achieve with our super hi-res files.

Product photography here at our Scotch Plains photography studio takes place Monday-Friday, appointment only, no walk-ins.

Healthcare products

photographed for print & web


The beauty of photography healthcare products is it's a lot of well designed packaging and interesting product lines. Everything needs to be captured clean and sterile looking. Our photographic images need to be precise, sharp and clean. Of course there is Photoshop to purify every image, with retouching and spotting, but we generally take the photographic approach first.  

Healthcare and medical device photography is a type of shoot where patience and perfection in the photographer is needed. Also, in the client as well.  Photography is not a formula. Photography is lighting. Lighting is an art. A learned art. It takes practice and patience.


E-Commerce Photography | Our Studio Productions Photography | Product Photos

White backgrounds. A must for e-commerce online sales. 

 

 


When photographing even the seemingly most simple things for the web, we need pure white backgrounds 98% of the time. By pure white I mean 255% white. How it is accomplished is within Photoshop a pen tool is used to draw around the item, and selecting the path, and filling the outside area with nothing or and white. This process is sometimes difficult depending on the item's shape, texture and degrees of opacity. 

It's just one of the requirements of e-commerce photography. The other is good quality images. Several reasons for this: To stand out, for zooming, overall appearance and what the image quality says about your commitment to your product line. With so many e-commerce sites out there, you really need to stand out from the crowd and use professional photographs to highlight your company from others. A continuity of images, shot/photographed with the same quality as the one next to it.

Studio lighting setup at OSP

Our list of advertising agencies and their art directors that we have worked with over the years, is long. Photographing just about anything you can think of. Places too. Like Trump Golf Course in Bedminster, NJ. 

Trump Golf Course Bedminster

Cold, brisk, break of dawn mornings and we were there tooling around in a golf cart getting some great shots. I mean of course, photographic shots. Great experience up in a cherry picker shooting all over the course, so beautiful.

Most of our work in done in our studio, for a more controlled lighting situation. Not many surprises here. We set up and shoot. On location, especially for instance a golf course, there's lots of moving around and repositioning of our equipment.  Studio photography is civilized. LOL. 

Professional Photography of Products | New Jersey Scotch Plains | OSP

A product shoot of rugs here in our Scotch Plains, NJ photography studio. Diane and I built the set, and style using props we keep here and others we purchase specially for individual shoots. Our main concern is the product, in this case the rug itself. 

Product photography is many different things. So if you are looking for a professional product photographer you are going in the right direction to achieve making your product, whatever it is look great. Presenting your product with a high quality photograph makes a very important first impression. Go for it and hire a product photographer with experience and one who understands the importance of the photo for you.

Glass Photography . Art Glass . Wine Glass Photography

Glass photography is clearly not so simple.

Important issues are seeing the edges, seeing the quality of the stemware and or nuances which may be details that really need to stand out. There are several approaches to photograph glass. We use whichever meets the needs of the specific piece. If we are shooting wine with food, then it crosses over to a 'lifestyle or glamour shot.' The lighting changes, not so much as a product image, but a more 'realistic' approach, to the image as a whole. Like it could be in your home. See it in your home. Sell a story, sell your product. 

 

Stemware with Pouring Wine

Art glass can be very dimensional and that needs to come across in the image. The color is also extremely important.  Whether it's earrings or large items like glass bowls, trophies, or stained glass for windows or otherwise, clarity and color is a must! Our high res files meet the highest standards in digital photography.

All products are subject to photography

Are you working in an ad agency? Or are you either a new product developer, manufacturer of a product you need photography of? Whether selling online or advertising in print ads you need to showcase your product. Quality in a photo of your product, shows you as insightful of marketing your product the best it can be. Your product stands out as a well made, thought out product. Gives you an edge.

Lighting effects each product differently. Specialty lighting is a must with reflective pieces. The simplicity of this photo directs the eye to exactly where you would want it, on the flatware.

Artists know that directing the eye to what they are selling, and sometimes while telling a story too, is what sells their product. Professional photography helps to do just that. 

Our Studio Production's photography studio is in a great location. Scotch Plains, NJ on a road local to major highways, trains and buses. We have plenty of FREE parking and great restaurants all around us. Please contact us for project quotes, and usually a free test shot of your product.

Commercial Photography in NJ | Our Studio Productions

Is having experience as a commercial photographer important these days? Is having experience in any profession important? Most would say yes. Especially if you are looking to hire a commercial photographer. Putting the very best image out there to sell, or inform consumers is vital to your success as an advertiser, manufacturer or a Shark Tank ( Or facsimile thereof) entrepreneur.

Being a professional photographer for dare I say, over 25 years, allows me to say we literally have photographed hundreds of different kinds of products. We welcome your emails, or phone call for quotes on your project.   :)

Commercial Photographers & Advertising Agencies

Photo Collaboration with Ad Agencies

For over 25 years Our Studio Productions has been collaborating with many, many advertising agencies working towards that great hero shot, as some call them. We as photographers simply call the final image or capture, as the "Thats it shot." The final. But, is there really ever a final? So many times after client approval, via email, text or by them actually being present at the shoot, we go back and tweak the lighting or a prop, to get it just right. Many of these changes no one would barely notice, but Diane our photographer sees small changes that just might make a difference, and yup, most times they do.

Ad agencies with all their talent, make great collaborators on photo shoots. They know what they want; a vision of their client's product come to life, so to speak. Advertising photography has certainly changed in the last 20 years. Digital photography too has changed, and provided the changes that shape what we see in ads. 

So often now our art directors, and clients of theirs, do not come to the photo shoots. Approvals are made via email and of course texting too. This makes everyones time much more productive, including ours. It's really a great thing. 

If you are working with an ad agency or not, OSP is here, only 27 miles from NYC and ready to get a quote to you, and jump right in to get started on your product photography project.
