Watch Out! It’s time for behind the scenes from our still life photography, video 360 spins and pack shots.
Hagley West designer watches visited our Milton Keynes Photography studio this week for 2 days to capture video 360 spins, premium pack shots and some still life product photography of their new watch range
There were 12 watch in total that needed showcasing in unique ways. Day one gave us a chance to try our new infinity pool. A few piece of wood from the fish tank, some stones from the beach and a bit of fog thrown in for good measure gave us the finish
We then moved on to the 360 video watch spins. Normally we shoot these with 360 individual still shots as this allows the web view to take control of the spin in real time so that they can view the image from any angle. However this time the client asked for a more stylised 360 video spin of approximately 15 seconds.
The second day we focused on delivering some premium pack shots on crisp white backgrounds. For these shots we used the Phase One XF camera with it’s 50MP digital back and the 120mm macro lens to ensure that we captured the finer details from the excellent designs. Lighting watches is always a little tricky as watch face like to act like a mirror, often reflecting the lights. However, the Profoto lights when placed correctly really helped to capture the texture of the different surfaces when we found the right placement.
We had a fun 2 days and the client was super happy with the end results. Take a look at our behind the scenes footage below.
