This is a photograph from one of my recent commercial photo-shoots. This was on behalf of a furniture company called Furniturebox, based in Mere in Wiltshire. I am based in Somerset, but cover Dorset and Wiltshire, as well as my home county. Indeed, as I am based in Bruton, near the border of the three shires, a good deal of those other two counties is closer than the farthest reaches of Somerset.
Furniturebox is a young and very professional concern, and it has a studio, complete with room setting, to display the furniture at its best. Various items of furniture were thoughtfully positioned and dressed, and we used carefully placed studio strobe lighting to get a warm and characterful spread of light, giving the company’s potential customers a sense of how the products would feel in a real home setting.
Using a full-frame camera and one of Nikon’s ‘Holy Trinity’ of top-notch lenses has produced sharp, detailed photographs with a powerful sense of presence. This website only permits the use of images which are 700 pixels on the long side – about 0.5 megapixels overall – so what you see here does not match the quality of the finished, refined photographs delivered to the client. The actual images produced by my cameras are 24 megapixels in size – around 50 times bigger than this image – I can provide full-size samples for potential clients. Please call for further details.
