CORONAVIRUS INFO: My studio is currently still open, however because of the recent government recommendations if you have a shoot booked with me and would prefer to defer your shoot to another date you are free to do so.
For clients who still wish to go ahead I would like to reassure you that I am taking the following precautions for each shoot.
1) Not shaking hands on arrival
2) Washing my hands between each shoot
3) Disinfecting door handles after each shoot
3) Maintaining the recommended 1 meter distance from other people
The Terrace Cafe which is in the Firstsite gallery in Colchester is under new management. A great place to get yummy cake and coffee or even share a bottle of wine over lunch. Here are a few ‘meet the new team’ pics…
I work on small orders myself and have other photographers who I have worked with before to call on for large orders. The most common request I have is to have the products placed on a pure white background with an added shadow or reflection. Sometimes my clients ask for their products to be placed on a clear layer so the product can be placed onto different colour backgrounds or onto a website. If you want to find out more about my product photography please see my website.
I recently did a series of images for Castellon Olives they wanted their product photography images as PNG files on a clear layer with added shadow so that they could use them in different places on their website.
Each product was shot against a pure white perspex background at my studio and cut out in Photoshop saved as PNG files and transferred onto a clear layer.
Hi, phewee I cannot believe we are already in the middle of February. Time seems to be flying past and I did have plans to write more on my blog this year. I want to share ideas, offer photography tips which I find useful and share a few stories without breaking anyone’s confidence! So hopefully I will find time to introduce more of that and not just use my blog to post pics.
In the mean time here is an image taken from a shoot I did with ‘Nudge Drinks’ a new smoothie company which you will hopefully soon see on your supermarket shelves. Yummy smoothies made with frozen fresh fruit.
