What extra touch-up will you perform?
Every object contain minor imperfections on itself which is not that visible with naked eye, but in the world of studio work those things are not desirable. Often, every products, specially prototypes and manufacturing samples contain minor imperfections, which you do not want to be there when your clients go BIG (screen, billboard, magazines…). We take care of that seriously.
We go further and tweak RAW files like color correction (white balance) if needed, exposure nailing, local exposure, shadows, highlights, correcting lens distortion and other little things under the hood to make it perfect.
Also we go far beyond our standard service in correcting manufacturing errors and other imperfections such as crooked labels, mold seams, misaligned gaps, damaged box corners, scratches, small imperfections, dust particles and much more.
After all we polish it and do all those magic things in PhotoShop to make final image just perfect.
Software we use: Capture One / Lightroom, Photoshop and Illustrator
When should I order hero shots over standard product photos?
We recommend hero shots for use on the selling sites like: (Amazon, Shopify)marketplace as the primary image in your listing. We also recommend Hero Shots any time an image needs to be extremely high resolution or when it will receive intense scrutiny such as with product packaging or advertisements (magasines, social networks, web sites, splash screens, banners, promo material etc…).
