Bella Freud, Harvey Nichols, London

September 04, 2014

I was recently commissioned to photograph the new Bella Freud point of sale perfume display on the ground floor of Harvey Nicholas, London. It is a great display designed and installed by Arken of Newmarket, unfortunately its made of black and highly reflective Perspex surfaces. These kind of surfaces are particularly difficult to light and composition is made more complicated by the need to manage unwanted refection.  Jobs like this need very detailed inspection of the image previews to minimise unwanted reflections of clients, staff and kit. Just what you need on an early morning shoot starting at 8.00 and finishing before the store opens to the public at 10.00. The use of a remote camera release is always a real help in these situations allow photographer reflections to be minimised. Minor tidying up was required in Photoshop CC to remove a couple of light stand feet but everyone was pleased with the finished result.
