Studio based photography of furniture can be creative and eye-catching. Matt Boysons wanted images to illustrate his work for his new website, his one proviso was he didn’t want to go down the white background product shoot. I couldn’t agree more. We worked on using a black background with the pieces sitting on white vinyl which added reflection and shadow to make the images stand out. Putting the wood against a strong deep black background and a sharp white edged vinyl made the colour and texture of the wood really ‘pop’! The studio isn’t huge but can be used in a way that creates an illusion and a surreal location.
The work was carried out over two days at a relaxed pace so we could take time to get the images looking consistent in style so that they will work together on the new website. The studio is large enough to remain physically distanced and to work in a Covid safe manner. Below are a few examples from the shoot including an image at the end of Matt in the studio setting the piece in place.
