Still Life Photographer, Creative Commercial Advertising Photography Studio in New York City

                The Significance of Still Life Photography and What It Entails at LenFlash.

At LenFlash, we specialize in professional still life photography for a wide range of industries. Whether you're in the beauty, fashion, jewelry, or general products business, we've got you covered. In today's digital world, having high-quality still life photography is essential for e-commerce brands to effectively showcase their products online and in print materials.

Why is still life photography so important? Well, it allows brands to present their products in the best possible way. By capturing the colors, finishes, and packaging designs of each item, we create visually captivating images that attract customers. Not only that, but still life photography helps establish a consistent and professional brand image, building trust and credibility with your audience. It also boosts product visibility and enhances the overall shopping experience.

For example, fashion brands rely on still life photography to showcase their accessories, clothing, and footwear in a visually appealing manner. Luxury brands use this style of photography to highlight the craftsmanship and intricate details of their high-end products.

There are various styles of still life photography to choose from. Traditional still life involves arranging objects like flowers, fruit, or everyday items to create visually pleasing compositions. Product photography focuses on presenting products in an attractive way for sales and marketing purposes. Food photography captures appetizing images of food and beverages. Tabletop photography involves arranging objects on a table or surface to create compelling compositions. These styles can be combined to create unique and captivating still life images.

To achieve stunning still life photography, we use essential gear like DSLR or mirrorless cameras, high-quality lenses, and various options for lighting. Lighting techniques such as natural light, artificial lighting with continuous lights or strobes, and the use of reflectors or diffusers help us control the direction and intensity of light. Different lighting techniques can create various moods and effects. Proper lighting is crucial to eliminate shadows and highlight product features, ensuring that every detail is showcased in our still life photography.

When setting up a still life photography session, it's important to start by selecting a theme or concept that aligns with the desired mood or message. Choose objects and props that represent the theme and gather items that complement each other in terms of color, texture, and shape. Experiment with different arrangements and compositions to find the most flattering and informative perspectives. Pay attention to lighting to enhance the scene, whether it's natural or artificial sources. Don't be afraid to try different angles, perspectives, and depths of field to add depth and dimension to the image. Utilize leading lines, symmetry, patterns, and negative space to create interesting compositions. Consider the placement and arrangement of objects within the frame to ensure visual impact and guide the viewer's eye. Lastly, maintain overall balance and harmony in the composition, making sure nothing distracts from the main focus of the photograph.

For optimal creative execution, we recommend hiring a creative director who oversees the overall creative operations and pitches creative concepts. An art director can provide focused attention to artistic details and hands-on experience. The creative director manages the entire team and possesses a broader scope of skills and responsibilities.

At LenFlash, we encourage clients to bring their own props and backgrounds for still life photography sessions. We work closely with our clients to select props and backgrounds that align with their brand and product style. It's important for clients to do prior research and create a mood board to develop their own concept.

After a photoshoot, you can expect to receive edited still life images within 5 days. We provide retouching as part of our still life photography services, with unlimited real-time revisions available to ensure your satisfaction. If you're in a hurry, we also offer rush services for Next Business Day delivery.

I had a spring advertising concept that i wanted to try featuring some of our colored diamond jewelry with fresh flowers. I discussed this with the team at Lenflash and they asked me to pick the flowers and leave the jewelry with them. I know for a fact that two people worked late into the night to compose something like 30 draft images for me to choose from. We picked about fifteen to keep that were subsequently edited and refinished to an outstanding standard - as you see here. They really went beyond professionalism and took an almost personal interest in my project, and i believe this level of attention is shown in the finished product.

OK Lenflash helped me from the very beginning to develop the concept for the photography for this product The stone background was created especially for me by the team at Lenflash and a series of original images were composed for me. In my experience getting consistent feel across all of the images is critical to creating identity for the product. However, it is not easy to do this without the images becoming monotonous or boring, Lenflash created images with enough variation to make each product appear unique while maintaining an overall aesthetic that is consistent throughout our brand. They are a pleasure to work with, and will receive all of our business in the future.
