Then the photographs go through a post production process where they are adjusted, retouched, exposure and colour enhanced, sharpened and improved to produce the best product photography image possible at its best angle, 

Photographs can also include props or ancillary items.  We also offer a "something different" service allowing a more creative style.  We want you to to 100% satisfied with your images and proud to use them for your ecommerce or forms of marketing.

The Extra Touches we Offer

High End Retouching

High End Editing, goes far beyond removing of any dust, scratches or obvious flaws, it can completely change the image. 

 

High End Editing, looks at colour, contrast, brightness, exposure, edges, details, light, reflections, colour patching and looks at how the image can be made better from all dimensions of editing.

Changes a standard image into a hero shot. This is also used when your looking for a specific style which doesn't fall under the other photography categories. Examples would be smoothing out textures or making certain parts of an image pop. Anything which basically goes beyond removing dust, scratches and obvious flaws will be classed as high end retouching.

Image Stacking

Image stacking is where an images focus  is taken further by individual shots be taken of the same subject in the same position with different focus points, these images are then merged together, ensuring every single part of the product is sharp and completely in focus. Depth of field is the area which is considered to be in reasonable focus, certain objects which are long and shot length ways will require this option, or having focus drop off can also make for a dramatic image also; its a matter of creative choice.

Image Resizing

The native resolution produced will be 6000x4000 pixels. Images can be reduced to any size, or to any ratio.

Off Site Shoots
