Hello everybody, there’s such a lot happening with us right now that we’re fairly fizzing with excitement and that’s down to people knowing we’re here…which is down to people knowing what we’ve got. With that in mind, it was high time a few photography lessons were learned (reflection = awkward) in order to achieve our primary objective: properly beautiful product shots on the nets.
The Studio Upstairs is a happy little place located above the vintage shop Upstaged round the back of the Corn Exchange in Leeds. Last Saturday, photographer in chief – the brilliant Mr Christian Gallagher, gave an outstanding lesson observation. Firstly, the steps to success: polish, polish, polish then when the glass gleams and every thumbprint has been vanquished, fire a beam of daylight into the terrariums whilst shutting out as much of everything else as you can. The outcome? Well we went from a possible C+:
To an A*!
with added distinction!!
Well we reckon we’ve definitely met the success criteria but can we replicate this at home? I guess you’ll be the first to know.
