Leather is all about quality, colour, finesse and texture – all of which good leather photography should showcase. There are many different kinds of leather and each has its own unique texture and styling technique. While shooting for a leather company, every shot must highlight the difference in their products, which is possible by using only the best photography techniques. Another important aspect in commercial photography services for leather companies and manufacturers is making sure that every colour is distinct and differentiable in the final portfolio. In this genre, even the slight colour variations have to be captured correctly as a single ‘Brown’ will have a number of gradients, each with a unique colour code. Most leather photography is done for export purposes and is used in catalogues and brochures. So it is important to keep in mind the commercial appeal that every shot must portray.
One of my recent projects in this segment was for one of India’s premium leather designers, Shahrukh Zaidi (SRZ brand) part of A.V.Thomas Leather group.
