Rugs, Carpets and Home Accessory Photography | New Jersey Photographers OSP

Anyone, that knows Diane and I from Our Studio Productions Photography, knows that we love what we do. Camera in hand, focusing on a product. Over the years, OSP Photography has photographed a multitude of various products, that sometimes make it hard to remember all of them.

So, when a prospective client asks us if we photographed something in particular, I have to pause a minute to go through my mind, and remember. Hundreds, or rather thousands of files to recall. Case in point; a prospective client of ours sent us an email inquiring about photography of their rugs. Below are the test shots we did for them, including retouching one into a stock photo. Rug in Stock Photo

Flat Perspective Photo of RugLooking at these sample images would you think that it is as simple as putting the rug down, and clicking the picture? It does look like that, but…It did take a bit of thought, and time to get the lighting even, and color accurate. These images will be used for their website, which is very well put together and easy to navigate.

Product photography is not as easy as one might think. Even the simplest, supposedly easy product shot is, well not always so easy. Lighting is everything. Daylight, or window light is not always the best solution. It is definitely a great way to photograph certain pieces, but not all.
