This is a set of 6 images of the construction product shoot I have written about this week. There is one point I would like to make about the image capture and processing of the images.

Consistency.

Consistecy of image capture and image processing.

How do I achieve a set of images that look like they belong together?

By using a very deliberate image capture process. Every image I take on a commercial shoot is taken on my Manfrotto tripod. Or where space is limited or I want an unusual angle my Platypod Pro.

Only when I have to do I take images handheld.

Why is this so important to me? Well I never need to change the settings on my camera. The only thing that changes is the aperture, which I vary depending on what I want the lens to do.

Everything else stays the same, using the camera settings that enable me to achieve the highest quality of image capture.

Image capture is the first part of the process.

Image processing is next.

It might not surprise you to know that I have a very well defined image processing workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop. Every commercial image is processed using the same workflow. Obviously some images need different things doing to them, some need more work and some virtually no editing.

Intitial processing is done in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, with cleaning up done in Adobe Photoshop.

I can produce matching images from different days using the skills I have developed over the many hours spent using Lightroom and Photoshop.

My workflows in image capture and image processing are probably week long subjects in their own right. Maybe when I run out of things to write about I will turn to these subjects.
