The science of location photography

A fantastic challenge came to the Capture team recently, a conceptual location shoot on a World Heritage site. The collaborative project with Ledvance saw their new product range Osram Smart+ in action at Sir Isaac Newton’s home, birthplace of his Theory of Light.

The PR campaign is designed to pay homage to the famous moment the prism split sunlight into the seven colours, a principle we use every day at Set Visions.

Capture, our photography team, had several technical challenges to consider whilst on location. The team needed to rig up the installation without damaging the historic site, fully plan the technical logistics and plan the art directed shots all without a site visit! With a limited window of shoot time the team worked with the client on site to deliver the remarkable images, even having time to light and photograph the infamous apple tree just using Ledvance products!

This collective project has been featured in print and received national attention. This is a great example of our creative team’s ability to conceive original visual content for your marketing, from print to Pinterest.

Trending-Earthy Terracotta Tones And Textures

Last year we predicted terracotta tones would strongly be featured in mainstream interior design and commercial photography. This trend is undeniably strengthening with the rich, earthy tones and textures displayed in to our imagery.

One of our favourite designs is this kitchen where we created a feature wall from a 12mm zenith worktop - accessorised with rustic terracotta propping for a tonal look.

Trending textures

It’s essential to mix textures for this trend. Think about using ionised finishes and rusty tones, mixed with sleek shiny textures and tactile matt fabrics. Key props pull this style together for a high end design look. By using copper and textured surfaces conveys a rustic aspect to the trend. We combined a water proof copper wall panel with complimentary earthy greens and contrasting sharp gold propping for a lux feel.

Colour palette is key

For this look we wanted a retro touch in a modern setting. Creating a wall mural was a great way to invigorate the set and deliver the on-trend colours featured in the earthy tone colour palate.

Bespoke Kitchen Photography

Capture is our Photography team, B2B specialists in the Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom industries and still going strong after 25 years. Our commercial space is specifically geared up for large room set builds which are perfect for bespoke kitchens, trend-based Pinterest content and promotional video.

A recent project saw Symphony and Laura Ashley Kitchens commission a set of images for their upcoming product release. Historically a CGI client, they wanted to use traditional photography to re-capture the realism that is sometimes lost in CGI. Although CGI is fantastic for architectural visualisations, traditional photography effortlessly captures mood, organic feeling and the tactile homely touch for which the iconic brand is famous.

The Capture team were instrumental in the photographic approach to the project. Our team explicitly directed these images to have beautiful natural lighting - eliminating the logistical hassle and cost of a location shoot.

Nina, Our Head of Creative, worked meticulously with Laura Ashley to deliver creative concepts and art direction that fit within Laura Ashley’s brand guidelines. All our creative team work exclusively in-house, meaning each client benefits from the personal touch be it from our enthusiastic set builders, talented stylists or professional photographers.
