Researching websites for product shots

After researching various websites such as IKEA, John Lewis and the Conran store, I’ve discovered there are three main shots for a lighting product. One is the product on it’s own unlit, another is a product lit and unlit in an environment to help the buyer visualise.


TR Bulb Table Lamp

The eponymously named TR Bulb Table Lamp has been innovatively designed by Tim Rundle for Menu.

Boasting a beautifully grained grey marble base and black powder-coated steel neck, the clean and simple lamp is finished with a spherical opal glass diffuser.

On the forefront of design technology, this minimalist diffuser acts as an LED dimmable bulb. Ingeniously designed to fit any standard E27 light fitting, the glass bulb can also be used to bring a touch of design décor to existing light fixtures.

Perfect for modern nomads who move between homes, cities and countries on a regular basis, this revolutionary bulb ensures you’ll always have a touch of style with you.

Emitting an even, harmonious glow in any space, the TR Bulb Table Lamp would make the perfect addition to any modern home.

Requires: 1 x Max 6W E27 bulb (not included)

Glo-Ball F2 Floor Light

The Glo-Ball F2 Floor Light forms part of Jasper Morrison’s Glo-Ball Collection, created in 1998 to call to mind the radiant glow of a full moon in a clear sky, in a fluid round form crafted from hand-blown, etched white opaline glass.

The elegant opaline finish obtains a maximum diffusion of light, with the die-cast aluminium support and matte silver stem creating a stable base for the otherwise curved form, fitting easily into any style of space.

Jasper Morrison created the Glo-Ball to invoke the otherworldly magic of night-time, with the lamp appearing three dimensional when not lit, and flat as a disc, like the moon, when illuminated.

A truly elegant piece of lighting design, the Glo-Ball F2 Floor Light is beautifully simple and would enhance any corner or living space with its gentle light. 

Requires 1 x Max 13W E27 LED bulb (not included).

John Lewis & Partners Huxley Task Lamp, Smoke/Antique Brass

Minimalist in design, the Huxley task lamp is a contemporary piece that will illuminate your room with a bright glow. Supplied with a bulb, it’s designed with a smoked glass shade that surrounds the bulb to create an eye-catching illusion. Its antique brass or brushed steel finish is ideal for restorative inspired settings.

With this light from the John Lewis website, I’m certain it’s been photoshoped into the environments. This could be an option for me if I struggle to create my own environments.
