PHOTOGRAPHING PRODUCTS

Helping independent businesses and makers show their products in a way that reflects their brand personality is something I will never tire of. I love the planning process; discussing ideas, creating inspiration boards, going back and forth to work out the best way to achieve everything, it really is a true collaborative process. 

A couple of weeks ago I photographed the products for Whitehall Studio who make handmade knitted items right here in Yorkshire. After seeing their Pinterest board of inspiration I knew I had the perfect table to use, and just a few relevant props would be best as the knitted pieces are full of detail so I didn't want to put anything in that would distract from them. 

I photograph everything on a background with styled props and then photograph everything on a white background which I then 'cut out' so the background is pure white - these shots are great to give to magazines and catalogues as the image is ready to be placed on the page. 

It's also important to get the details - the inside of the purse, the labels that are hand stitched in, the zip. These little details help the buyer get a bigger picture of the item.
