As photographers we definitely have our favorite things to photograph, and as women we do like jewelry photography. That does not mean it is easy by any means, just nice to look at. When photographing jewelry we take a very methodical approach. Also, a thoughtful one. On occasion we are asked to come with the background ideas, and our thoughts on how to best show their jewelry product line. Usually, these days we go with a white background, and then we remove the background, otherwise know as a path. That way our clients can take it off the background in Photoshop and put it on any type of background the like, or furthermore for selling on Amazon.
Just because I said we especially like photographing jewelry doesn’t mean we don’t photograph all other types products. Like for instance: industrial, home accessories, healthcare and more.

Advertising photography for apparel and accessories is available here in Scotch Plains, NJ. OSP photography shoots for several well known, high quality manufacturers of clothing lines in our Scotch Plains studio. Whether shooting stylized grouping or individual pieces, color is extremely important to get it right. The many fabric colors and textures are key to the end use of the image. Patterns, textures and fabric need to be as close as can be to reality. Ah, ha though, what that is for you and for me can be very different. Especially, viewing the images on different monitors, never mind in print. But, that’s a horse of a different color. In this world we need to use a standard, so it evens out most of the issues for the customer. I believe most things are intuitive and our minds fill in the blanks without us evening realizing.
Professional commercial photography needs, at most times a well thought out plan. Advertising agencies have well-trained art directors and designers that make up a creative team. Usually, before they even walk in our door they have given their shoot day substantial thought. They may actually have a layout, and background colors and foregrounds picked out, and have discussed all this with us beforehand. Other times, they just wing it. Especially, if they have worked with us in the past and are aware of the props and backgrounds we have on hand.
Photographing with manufacturers is different. Often we can use our skills at styling, besides lighting to get the product to shine. I do not mean to actually shine, unless they want it to. Commercial photography ‘aka’ advertising photography is a well thought out process. Being in the photographers head would be interesting, and I know confusing, but not to them. They think in terms of light. Where it is, how much, the quality and direction. How it affects your product. Does it enhance it or not show enough detail.
It is a learning experience if it is your first time at a photography studio, the massive amount of light it can take to light a very simple piece can be amazing to a first timer, be it furniture or a medical sponge.
We love what we do, and are always using our skills to make your products look great!

Advertising photography is sometimes shooting very clean shots/images for our clients. Clean digital product photography is essential in the presentation of your products, either for web, print or catalog. A simple example is almost always the best way to reach your focus group. But to do that. what it is being shown must be the absolute best the first time potential buyers see it. We shoot clean, but if need be we will retouch the final image; dust spotting, color correction (by the numbers).
Here are a few images for a client who supplies containers for the cosmetic industry. Some were shot twice, for different elements of the product. To get the reflective parts to look great, and not to effect other parts of the piece. Then we put them together to get a well balanced image.
As you may have seen a blogs ago, the cosmetic photograph of dusting power, an action shot is very interesting to see. The actual product up close.

Moving our advertising photography business into Scotch Plains has been interesting, and wonderful all at the same time. Yes, our first shoot is going very well, and we feel comfortable and most importantly so do our clients. Yeah! This shoot is for a catalog of artwork, all handmade for awards, special acknowledgements and other reasons to give a handmade, sculpted, carved and many other mediums. Photography is of course much more challenging when any kind of glass is involved. Texture, color, depth to name a few of the most important part of a product and it needs to be understandable in our images.
Everyday we shoot something different, sometimes a new challenge and other times not. I don’t think we can actually say we have a favorite product to photograph. There are so many exciting and interesting advertising agencies with great products to shoot. I have to say we love what we do. Never a boring day, and we get to work with such nice, and of course creative people. Keep it coming guys.
