Behind the Scenes: T-shirt Photoshoot

Read on to discover what  goes on behind the scenes during our T-shirt Photoshoot at the DropMock  HQ.

Behind the Scenes: T-shirt Photoshoot

IMG_7006T-shirt Photoshoot that will be used for the application. We invited some gorgeous models to our office and started early in the morning to prepare the set. One of the challenges that our photographers encountered that day is the lack of good sunlight as it was a bit gloomy even outdoors.

 

There were a couple of shots that we managed to get from our office as it offered great interior just perfect for backgrounds. While there is always help coming in from the LED’s, still most of the time, we would prefer natural lighting.

We love natural lighting as this will eliminate risks of producing noisy pictures and uneasy look of bland white LED’s. It makes the job of our graphics artist in post processing easier as well.

But no matter what the situation is, we always come up with a plan.

The photoshoot went on for the whole day. That very good length of time had allowed us to take about a thousand pictures that our team had yet to select from. All these will be subject for approval and only then will have to be post processed.

Here, please have a look of some raw shots submitted for post processing.

Our team had to be systematic about how we do batch processing to minimize errors and avoid redoing tasks. We are expecting more shoots to follow so the graphics team is also busy; ensuring batches of photos are processed accordingly.

One of the jobs of our graphic artists is to properly plot the plane coordinates essential for the developer’s programming. Notice that some of the t-shirts have some sort of wrinkles. Our staff has a procedure that meets the requirement of the developer to properly get the coordinates.

We will write another article about how we process the images and how we put them in them in to the application.

But for now, the graphics team is focused on producing very good quality pictures.

DropMock Update: New Logo

DropMock – New Logo

bts-logo-dropmock-sdBehold, the final image of what DropMock looks like.

After some brainstorming, submissions, and numerous revisions, we proudly present the new face of DropMock.

 

When creating something for the first time, we always want it to be the best and perfect. We felt the same thing when creating the logo. Yes, a lot of things went through our heads and we know the feeling when it is just so difficult to find something that really meets your contentment.

Check out this logo:

We wanted some originality in our work. Although we have looked at how other companies are doing it, that was just to know what quality and standard we are up against. But again, our main concern was uniqueness and identity.

Look at some of the logos where we chose the final one from.

We realized that it is best to have the work DropMock as part of the logo. Just to its left are two screens prepended to it. It sums pretty much about what our software does. Putting two images together. One from yours and one from ours. All combined to create something excellent and brilliant.

Behind The Scenes: Early MockUps Photoshoot

DropMock – Early MockUps Photoshoot

Our professional photographers had long been busy creating shotlists even before we start doing this blog. We have always thought of how we could have the best pictures essential for DropMock. Then, we have realized that there is no better way of doing that than considering what people like you need in the business.

Indoor shoot of mockup mugs
Mockup shoot in our studio. If the weather doesn’t favor what needs to be done outside, we resort into doing things under LED’s.

 

Notice that most of the shots we have first considered shooting are somewhat flat lays of devices like iPhone, Macbook Pro, and other computers.

 

Phones and computers have now become man’s essentials. These are now channels of information, communication and most of the time, means of getting things down. And this is so evident in almost all workplace.

Having said that, we have shot these mockups in offices, coffeeshops, and high-end locations to imitate scenarios in corporate ambiance and professional activities.

We understand that there are other means to display your brand. So we have thought of including mugs in the shoot. Likewise they are placed in various visually appealing places.

Check out these samples.

This is a mug we shot in the studio. The photographers used a blue construction paper as a backdrop.

Mockup mug in a spotlight
Yes, it takes some time to put the mugs in a very good setup for photo-shoot. See how carefully we have placed a mockup in order under perfect lighting.

We also went outdoors to get some natural lighting. This was shot on a graphite tile just outside a museum.

The goal in this stage is to make sure we have great photos to start working on. These photos are aimed at holding your brand and will go through series of image processing before handed over to the developer.

What Is DropMock?

DropMock – What Is DropMock?

DropMock is a program which you can use to promote your brand through a wide variety of mockups of iPhones, Macbook Pro, T-Shirts and mugs to name a few. All these were shot in visually attractive setups like offices, urban scapes, coffee shops and others.

Our exceptionally crafted software makes it easy for you to showcase your product without being a professional photographer or graphic artist by offering you well-thought-out templates of our gorgeous mockups.

 

DropMock App - Choose a Video Template screen

Chroma keying or otherwise known as green screening  is nothing new. Photo and video production firms had long perfected the process of compositing two images such that a background of one image is replaced with another picture. This is no different from a news anchor with a dynamic background overlay where headlines and footages play simultaneously in one video stream.

However, the process alongside the programs or software used isn’t readily convenient for everyone. In this age of information where multimedia is favored and a growing demand to its integration in various aspects of the online community is a must, it becomes a pressing matter to make such production accessibly easy and effective in a timely manner.

This is the foothold of DropMock. We have developed a software to eliminate the strenuous effort needed in creating professional statements and advertisement through such process. We are to introduce a seamless process for everyone through an online platform with a straightforward process.

DropMock shall have a vast collection of professionally shot scenarios where a user could choose from and use to pair with their own photos or image.This could be a print on a mug set in a coffee shop ambiance or but not limited to various devices like iPhone showcasing a product in Instagram or any image content uploaded by the user.

Other mockup devices include Laptops, PC’s, iPads, iPhones, mobiles, t-shirts and more. This is a growing library of items from our curating professional photographers and image editors.

As the Online Mockup Scene Creator software comes near to its launch.We are excited to deliver this software to cater to your exceptional marketing experience.
