Strong Boalt Palm Beach (http://www.strongboalt.com) approached us with a challenge. A new range of a dozen mens tops needed product photography and they needed to look great.
Clothing photography is always a tricky beast, obviously everything has to be lit but the colors have to be right it a lot of backwards and forwards with the strobes in the studio. It has to be bang in focus, I like to use a high f-stop but again that means using a large amount of light so a couple of Paul C Buff Alien Bee’s sorted that out. Then there is the cloths themselves, they always arrive at our Delray Beach studio in a box in their plastic wrappings folded (sort of) and WRINKLED. How do you hang them? Pin them? Position them? We haven’t taken a single shot yet…
So go on then, how do you do it? Photograph the invisible man? We managed it, no cables or fancy stuffing involved either. Just a bit of out of the box thinking and some clever photoshopping.
If you would like to know, drop me a line and I’ll spill the beans 😉
Maria and I met a week before the wedding to go through the details, it was simple… “Matt, I just want to record the memories just do what you need to do” this is music to my ears.
The wedding took place at a family house in deepest Delray Beach, lovely gardens and a huge marquee was erected at the last moment (that morning) as it was never going to be a typical florida sunny afternoon.
We definitely hit the mark with this wedding, remote strobe flash guns, two cameras and we delivered over 400 photographs, take a look at some of my favorite picks here…
Maria agreed… “Thank you Matt for all the great photographs, I’m so excited!! We can’t stop looking at them …“
