I recently photographed some foot care products for Boyce Podiatry in Havelock North for inclusion on their website.
With product photography, accurate colour representation is critical. Designers who design a product colour scheme and packaging expect a true representation of the colour palette when marketing and advertising photography is undertaken.
To ensure I achieve accurate colour representation for my clients, I use a colour calibrated monitor for processing my images, this is checked and re-calibrated regularly. It is also important to use correctly colour profiled editing software which takes into account any given lighting scenario or white balance, I.e. studio lighting, daylight, tungsten lighting, etc. and the camera/ lens combination used.

Over the last couple of months we've been beavering away shooting new marketing images for Norsewear.
Tank Marketing & Design in Napier were tasked with undertaking this project and to date we've shot and clear-cut a wide range of products, including socks, hats, gloves and other apparel.
We've also been busy shooting in the great outdoors - on farms, the top (and bottom) of Te Mata Peak, by the Tuki Tuki River and in Havelock North to capture the products in their 'natural' environments.
Many thanks to Nat, Steve and Nicky at Tank Marketing & Design, our great client Bruce Keatley at Norsewear and of course to my assistant Loren.
Projects like this require a team of people who operate on the same wavelength, and have the same goal in mind, I think we very much achieved that on this project!
Today I had a little bit of free time towards the end of the day, so I thought I'd start to shoot some products for my portfolio.
It's good fun shooting this type of image, it's a lot more technical in terms of studio lighting than most of the photography I undertake.
It's always good to push your boundaries, learn new things and turn out some different images from the norm...
