 Photographing products for  thehealthandwellnesscompany



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.


In our Scotch Plains, NJ photography studio we can meet with you to discuss your product photography project. Test shooting is available.

Professional Photo Lighting is Not a Template

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


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.

Industrial Photography | OSP Photographers in NJ

We began our blogging using Wordpress, and below is a link to connect to that blog and all the others written.


For the most part industrial photography is not very glamorous, but, at the same time it can be artistic.  The way we see it is how architectural photography is so inspiring, with the sharp angles and contrast against itself or the sky, industrial products can also have that feel.


Photography of industrial products is interesting and valuable to us as photographers. A few reasons for that, the first being lighting techniques. As professional product photographers know shooting a black object against a white background is always a lighting challenge. Not just the
