Industrial Photography | OSP Photographers in NJ

For the most part industrial photography is not very glamorous, but, at the same time it can be artistic.  The way we see it is how architectural photography is so inspiring, with the sharp angles and contrast against itself or the sky, industrial products can also have that feel.

 

Photography of industrial products is interesting and valuable to us as photographers. A few reasons for that, the first being lighting techniques. As professional product photographers know shooting a black object against a white background is always a lighting challenge. Not just the Industrial_OSPexposure, but getting details of the product you are photographing. Not to overexpose, or you will lose detail and blow it out, or underexpose which hides details.  This is where using a light meter is invaluable. Whether is’s location photography or in our studio for catalog online/web or print, we can work together to make some pretty awesome images for your marketing projects.

 

So three cheers for industrial products, and the people and places they are made!

NYC Photography Talent in NJ

Thirty years of experience is a lot of time. When we think back on all the shoots we have produced, it boggles our minds. My sister with whom I work with, is our photographer. Our photography business has progressed over the many years and so has our knowledge. Knowledge of lighting, and learning the ever changing software programs that now in the digital age we must always acquire the skills and the hardware.

Studio_OSP_Rugs_Diane     Our newest acquisition is a Hasselblad CFV-50. Simply perfect. Of course it came with new software to learn, but as intuitive as most photography software is, the learning curve was not so painful. The Hasselblad digital back is also live, which helps us greatly when setting up shots, especially with props. Product photography can be a slow process, with the many changes to an image, in terms of lighting and propping. But, of course it depends greatly on what your product is. Live view with our new Hasselblad digital back speeds up the process by not having to click, capture or shoot as many images to get what you are looking for.


Our photography studio is located in New Jersey, near major roadways and mass transit. It’s an easy commute in and out of NYC. If you live in New Jersey and are looking for a photo studio for a product shoot, look in your backyard. Not literally, of course but seriously talent is here in New Jersey.

Local Product Photographer | Scotch Plains, NJ

OSP Jewelry Photography of The Paris BraceletThis is an image we photographed a few months ago for a relatively new company in the USA. We are very fortunate to have worked for them for several reasons, one of them being simply the beauty of the product. In product photography we can find ourselves photographing many different kinds of products in one day. On this particular day of shooting we worked exclusively on these beautiful bracelets.

Last week we ran the gamut on many products, ranging from fine custom made furniture to tablets for a pharmaceutical client. Large, tiny, glass to wood we photograph it. Even nuts and bolts! Really. Professional product photography is one of those things where, you get what you pay for. These days, EVERYONE is a photographer. Well, at least they think so. Much more thought goes into what is seemingly a ‘simple’ product shot. You just put it down, focus and shoot. Right? Not really how it works.

Many of our new clients are surprised by the set up time, and post computer time for a series of images. Much thought goes into photographing just about anything if it’s for advertising. I always ask our clients what is the end usage, because that tells us some very important information on set up, size and output just to name a few pieces of the puzzle that is to say, the specs of a project.

Glamour FlatwareOur commercial photography studio here in Scotch Plains, NJ is incredibly adaptable to several sets at a time if need be. Catalog photography in the back of the studio, jewelry in the front, and maybe even a couple pieces of furniture.

 

Rugs & Furniture Photography | OSP photography NJ

As a commercial photography studio we get asked to photograph all kinds of things. We photograph things like: Jewelry, tabletop place settings, packaging, stuffed animals, furniture blah, blah. Yes, many different kinds of ‘things’ otherwise known to us as, products. Products photographed for catalogs, websites and of course print.Ceramic Set on Washed Wood

Product photography incorporates studio pharmaceutical to on location photography of again all kinds of products. Can we specialize? Sure, but honestly, it’s a rare bird now a days. With in ‘house photography’ in so many corporations now, and advertising agencies we didn’t want to close the doors to other opportunities for us.

Once upon a time, we photographed mostly only food. Cooked and uncooked food photography, and raw ingredients, but then when we were asked to photograph tableware, it was a natural transition. Likewise, rugs to furniture. Or both for some customers in one shot. Lifestyle photography is very important especially now with online shopping. Giving the customer a sense of what your product will look like on their table at home, or on them.

Lifestyle photography is one of the most creative photo shoots in the realm of lighting. These two images are shot without any ambient light, just strobes. While sometimes we do use natural light on occasion, it’s mostly as a mood setting element. Just enough to bring in a feeling. Most importantly photographing tableware is about the pieces, but for lifestyle it’s more about the mood that the tableware can bring. Something warm and sometimes sexy.

Our Scotch Plains photo studio has great window light when we need it, and light blocking curtains when we don’t. Which is 95% of the time.

Commercial photography for us is packaging, retail displays, catalog and web. We have recently finished a rather exciting packaging project for tableware and online catalog and print pieces. Next blog I’ll post a few flat art samples.

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.
