Product on Black Acrylic Staged

This innovative speaker design offers stunning sound.  The photography needed to reflect the mood.

The photographer used two Arri 650T fresnel lights with 300 watt bulbs and two Matthews 48″ x 48″ artificial silk scrims, 1.6 stops.  Also used a Rotolight NEO matching the Arri tungsten temperature for the top of the speaker.

Canon 100mm 2.8 macro lens

We used a sheet of black acrylic to create a classic look.  There is nothing in the background, but shooting at a 9.0 aperture kept the product in sharp focus while turning the background completely black. This shot is straight out of the camera, no Photoshop adjustments or editing.

Simple Product Staging on Black Acrylic

The designer requested a size perspective so we added wine glasses for a simple staged product image.

Book Author Portrait

Book Author Portrait

It’s worth waiting for! We knew this portrait would be ideal for our children’s book author.  With everything set up, we waited…for the sunlight. The breath taking explosion of light bathing our subject was exciting. While leaning on a white piano the elements of the room worked together to give us this lovely portrait.

We used a Paul C Buff Einstein flash with a 10% grid.

To serve multiple needs this also holds up in an intimate close up head-shot.Author Head-shot Portrait.

Lifestyle Portrait Photography

Executive Lifestyle Portrait

This dental practice wanted their website to reflect the fun spirit of the dentists and the staff.  We put a different spin on the lifestyle portraits of the team groups. This turned out beautifully with composition and balance and the doctor’s smile lights up the photo.

Lighting:
Paul C Buff 64″ PLM Umbrellas
Two Einsteins

Website photos can go beyond the somber to this fun shoot. It captures the fun spirit of this staff portrait.  (We took serious shots, too – but these won out!)

Using 64″ Paul C Buff PLM umbrellas, two Einsteins to get that beautiful deep separation of tones.

Group Staff Photography

Large Group Staff Photography

A large staff group shot needs a bit of pre-planning. This session greatly benefited from color coordinated clothing. Body language is a subtle way to bring the comfortable warmth of a large group and takes patience to arrange.

Lighting for a large group gives depth.  We used 64″ Paul C Buff PLM umbrellas – one on each side.

Service Truck on White

What to do with your service truck photo?  You spent a great deal of thought and cost in creating your moving billboard – the photo turned out great, next?  A slick, clean extraction of your service vehicle is a great advertising tool.  You can create beautiful ads by lay text over the image, or drop it into any kind of background.  It all begins with getting a properly lit photo.  The “magic” lies in the planning.  The extraction yields an image easily manipulated in many creative ways.

Product Styling

Product Styling
This diffuser product begins with a lush reflective foreground and organic items to complement the style of this product.  Shooting on a specialized surface gives the refection we were after fading into white.  This is achieved by a lot of light precisely directed.
Styled Product Photography
For a dramatic style we pulled in a textured background, a simple brick and keeping our organic theme – a few accents to give this diffuser a new face!
