Product photography can take place at your premises or smaller products can be photographed in the studio. Products can be cut out from the background (for use on a white background website) or photographed on any background of your choice. Using the latest battery powered studio flash lights, photography can take place in any location including outdoors away from mains electricity. If you wish to direct the photography it is possible to tether the camera to a Macbook Pro for instant proofing of images.
For eCommerce websites in particular, product photography is vital to successful sales, as is colour accuracy, using lighting equipment that has a high accuracy for colour temperature together with careful colour calibration results in images with true to life colour.
