Shots of objects, products or moods. Optimization of the development of the photographs for an optimal result.
Shots are made using a high definition digital back on a medium format camera.
After shooting, photography is treated for color accuracy on a color calibrated computer using software which enhances the quality of the raw file. A final phase of optimization is performed on a pen tablet. The photographs are delivered on a DVD or uploaded on a server. The technical costs of delivery of high-definition photographs are included in the service rates. The files are prepared in various weights without extra billing. It is best to use rates for half-day or full-day work.
For shots that require a particular setting or complex lighting, an estimate is made.
The creation of custom ICC color profiles optimizes the color of pictures and enhances the original color of products.
When respect for color is essential, I use a color card composed of patches of different colors to create, an ICC custom profile to optimize rendering. A custom profile has the advantage of being more accurate than generic profiles included on a raw file development software. Each modification of lighting or decoration requires the creation of a new ICC color profile to maintain this quality of restitution. These profiles are then used to develop all the RAW files of the digital back.
Camera Hasselblad H, Phase One digital back, Flash Elinchrom, Capture One software, Adobe Photoshop, ProfileMaker Pro for color profiles.
