Experienced Professional Photographers

The most important thing at a photo shoot is communication between the photographer and the client.

  • Layouts, story boards, photos or any other reference, is key to a successful shoot. Additionally, a shoot list is key to setting up a flow for product and lighting changes.

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.

Product Photo Studio | Web Photography | Catalog Photographers

Photographing, shooting or capturing images for commercial/advertising, whatever the term you use, it's what we do here in our Scotch Plains photography studio. If you are someone looking for a photographer to photograph your products for e-commerce, catalog or any of use for advertising please continue to look through our website to see what we can do with lighting and many years of practicing our photography skills. 

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. 

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.

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.
