Lighting and Image Creation

It is important to understand the difference between simply capturing an image of something that is already there, using the available light, and actually creating an image whereby every element in the frame is carefully controlled in terms of placement, composition, colour and light including both foreground and background elements.

There are many people doing the former. We specialise very much in the latter, creating images that you will be absolutely delighted with, proud of, and that will work hard and successfully to promote your company, service or product. Images that will show your company off in a positive and professional light.

We control light and shade in the frame, adding sunlight, moonlight or candlelight as the subject matter requires. We control colour, flesh tones and the overall balance of the objects within the frame. We take light away where it is not required. This is a specialised craft and our clients really appreciate the extra glitz and sheen that our images have.

Location / Studio

Depending on the subject matter and the nature of your requirements the studio can sometimes be a better option and sometimes a location shoot is either necessary or preferable. Food and drink is often best shot at the location whether it be a restaurant, commercial kitchen or other culinary outlet. Products are often best shot in the studio where there is a greater degree of control. Fashion can sometimes be studio based and sometimes require a certain backdrop which by its nature needs to be a location. Location work includes both interior as well as exterior work.
