Ava Design Photoshoot

It’s been an age since my last post! With many shows lined up for Ava Design, we have hardly had time to catch our breath. After a wonderful show at the Art and Design show on the Putney Embankment on May 4th, Ava Design has FINALLY allocated some time to taking photos of our newer products! Here are some photos of the shoot from last weekend, involving wood floor samples, two flower pots of basil, a digital camera and a sunny garden….

In the past, I have used studio lights, a digital SLR camera and a white box, but have always struggled to get the right light and focus (pearls are particularly difficult to photograph due to their iridescent nature) which has often led to spending hours in post production fixing my colours. Struggling desperately to find a way to take photos quickly and keep post production in photoshop minimal, I have been pleasantly surprised at the outcome using my new unconventional way of shooting.


Here are a few examples of some of the product pictures I took on the day! All new items are now available on my online shop – check it out!
