Shooting roomsets over the summer needed a working space we could leave set up whilst other studio work was being done. There was a likelihood that some products wouldn’t be ready in time for the shoot and a few cancellations on the start date eventually had us starting with still a likelihood that all the products wouldn’t be available in time.
The set was built and painted in good time and awaited product delivery.
When the first sets of products started arriving we dismantled some of the studio lighting to move over to our temporary studio.
We were using a Barn Conversion for our location studio. Large for its kind of a 5 bay design allowing plenty of shooting space and storage along with a set capable of providing space for a rather wide Double Page Spread A3 image spanning the upper part of a spread, so it was rather wide and narrow.
I was shooting using the Nikon D3x capable of an easy native A3 image size @ 300dpi providing more than enough data for an easy crop along with a full compliment of lenses. Shooting tethered provided on screen confirmation of crop sizes with these crops set specifically for this project. There were two crops being shot, the wide double page spreads and half that width consisting of single page widths. Here are samples of some the 20 pages of images shot, and following are the catalogue pages they were used in.
