The brief for this assignment was to product images for display as large acrylic prints on the walls of the clients new offices.
Having met with the client, I borrowed a single product and took a range of test shots in the studio to give them an idea of the type of lighting, colours and backgrounds that could be produced, and having reviewed these they decided on the reflective surface and a blue partially lit background. But also they liked the closeup shots I’d added into the brief as it wasn’t something they’d originally considered, but that they really liked the results.
We then set a date to shoot all of the clients products in this range and used a meeting room to accommodate my studio equipment. I often bring the studio to the client for some assignments, as access to products is not always easy and some items can be bulky. It also reduces the packing and unpacking time, making the shoot smoother and quicker.
I link my laptop to the camera, so the client can see the images as they are shot and we can proof the images as they are taken. This allows for adjustments and reviews with other team members who will often be part of the overall approval. The resultant images can be posted online for final review, always handy if team members and approvals staff are not all based in the same office, or aren’t in the same country.
Once the client had selected their chosen images to be turned into acrylic frames, all they had to do was sit back and wait for the results. In this case it was a combination of both single and multiple image displays.The acrylic frames arrived a few weeks later and the online images sadly don’t do them justice, the quality of print, materials and fittings is simply stunning.
So if you’re looking for photographs of any description to adorn your office walls, why not have custom made acrylic images to show off your products, services or people to their very best, portraying your organisation through high quality images really does make a visible impression on your visitors.
