Photography

Corporate photography is any type of photography used for promoting a company's brand, products and services.

Our services include.


Studio photography
Studio photography is performed indoors, in a managed setting where the photographer has complete control over all of the elements that go into creating a photograph.
TDS does Studio photography to shoot a wide variety of subjects, including people, animals and a wide variety of products, from automobiles to jewellery. A photography studio will usually start out as a blank space, meaning just an empty room. The photographer will then develop backdrops and decide what to include and exclude from the photo, such as costumes for models and props.


Portrait Photography

Portrait photography is more than just capturing a picture of somebody in an artistic representation of a person's attitude and personality.
Portrait photography involves four types of approaches: 

  • Environmental Approach
    The environmental approach to portrait photography means that the client is positioned in surroundings that speak to the person's identity or profession. 

For example, if a client loves horses, then the portrait might be taken with the client in a stable while brushing a horse. On the other hand, if a client is a professional writer, then the portrait might be taken inside an office with the client holding a pen and a notepad.

  • Constructionist Approach
    A constructionist approach to portraiture is all about building emotion and developing atmosphere. The photographer may choose to set the mood of the portrait through the background, lighting, and person's body language to build a conveyed emotion. 

For example, a photographer might have a mom-to-be holding her belly and looking downward to convey the notion of waiting.
Likewise, for a serious attitude, the photographer might have a client look intently into the camera and use a minimal background.

  • Candid Approach
    The candid approach involves capturing the essence of a client when he or she thinks the photographer isn't working, but this doesn't mean that the photo wasn't planned in advance or that the photographer isn't providing some type of subtle direction. What isn't planned is exactly when the photograph is going to be snapped.

Product Photography

Product photography can be called e-commerce photography. It is a very important part of an e-commerce site, as it plays a key role in online shopping. 

When we talk about the importance of product photography then it will be justified to say that it helps to overcome the challenge that an e-commerce website faces i.e.to satisfy the wants of a customer. Thus it becomes a challenge for the photographer to get some very appealing picture of the products so that it fulfils the need of a customer who wishes to feel and touch the product before purchasing it. But when shopping online the customer cannot do so. Then the only option left to persuade a customer to buy the products is by making the products look very appealing in the photographs. 

This will also help in increasing the bounce rate and the conversion rates on the website. 

But you should not forget that making the product look appealing is not the only task of the photographer. He/she should click the pictures in a way that they go with your brand image and with the overall website. And this can be achieved only with the help of a professional. 

So if you are planning to have a product shoot then I would suggest you to hire a photographer who is extremely professional and experienced in TDS.

There are several sub-categories in product photography.

  • Simple studio product shots, 
  • White background shots/ photos, 
  • Using a scale to show the size of the products, product grouping,
  • Products and lifestyle action shots, 
  • Studio setup, 
  • Non-traditional product images, 
  • Hanging products and large products. 

There are several more types of the product Photography that are still used by professional photographers.

Fine Art Photography

Fine art photography involves bringing a vision to life. It involves creating something that previously only lived in your mind, as opposed to simply capturing what you see in an artistic way.

How It works in TDS

It Starts With a Vision

Fine art photography involves bringing a vision to life. It involves creating something that previously only lived in your mind, as opposed to simply capturing what you see in an artistic way. It’s a way to express your emotions and the way you see the world and to share it with others.

That means when you’re preparing for a fine art photo shoot, you should already have some sort of vision in mind. Whether that’s a detailed plan or just a vague idea, it’s an important starting point for creating fine art photography.

It’s All about Beauty and Meaning

Another definition is that, as opposed to other forms of photography, fine art is meant to be judged solely for its beauty and meaningfulness, two things that are very subjective. That means it’s unrestricted by practical considerations and it can break the usual rules of photography.

For example, a fine art photo might be completely out of focus. While that would be seen as a technical error in most photography circles, fine art photography is different. It can involve surreal or abstract subjects, creative editing, and breaking composition rules.

The main goal isn’t to demonstrate your technical skills. Instead, it aims to express an idea, an emotion, or a message.

It’s Created Carefully

One thing’s for sure fine art photos are not candid snapshots. Every fine art photo involves a lot of planning and tweaking. Between the composition, details, and meaning, these images are created as carefully as paintings.
So, as you can see, it’s a bit complicated.

Find Some Inspiration

So, what’s our vision? What message or emotion do you want to convey? And how exactly are we going to do that? Those can be difficult questions to answer.
To get the ball rolling, here are some suggestions for finding inspiration.

Clear Your Head

If you’re struggling to come up with fine art photography ideas, it can be useful to take a step back and focus on something else. Get away from your usual surroundings, do something with a friend, go on a trip, watch movies whatever you like to do. Taking your mind off of your creative block and just seeking out experiences can be a great way to spark some inspiration.

Equipment for Fine Art Photography

The required equipment is another area where fine art photography differs greatly from other genres. That’s because you don’t need much. You could get started with whatever camera you have handy.

It’s All About How You Use it

Since creativity and artistic vision are more important than the technical aspects of your photos, there’s no need to buy the latest gear.

If you need convincing, just consider the long history of fine art photos taken with basic equipment. In fact, many features on the latest cameras won’t be much help when it comes to fine art photos.

For example, features that are aimed at making it easy to shoot, like autofocusing and auto exposure, can actually take away from a fine art photo. Instead of using those auto settings, you should experiment with the manual settings and see if they can help you achieve your vision.

Get Yourself a Tripod

One piece of gear that you should invest in is a tripod. A tripod can provide more opportunities to get creative. It allows you to do things like shooting with long exposures or creating HDR images. Besides that, it makes things much easier when you are carefully setting up your composition.

Fine Art Portrait Photography Tips

When you’re trying to create fine art, you can throw some of the usual portrait photography guidelines out the window. For example, you don’t need to make the subject’s face visible. Their head could be turned away from the camera or not even included in the frame.

That’s one of the great things about fine art photography: you have complete freedom. But that also means it can be hard to know where to start. Here are some tips and ideas that may get your creative juices flowing for your fine art portrait photography.

Know Your Models

One important tip is to make sure your models are comfortable. Sure, this is true for any type of portrait photography. But it is especially important when it comes to fine art photo shoots. That’s because you are going to need them to work closely with you to create your vision. The photo shoot will take some time and may involve a lot of experimentation.

Instead of their tried and true poses, you may want to ask them to do something unusual. So, to make things go smoother, make sure you get to know your models first. If you are first meeting them on the day of the shoot, take the time to have a quick meeting with them before you get started.

Also, if you know some poses that you’d like them to try, consider bringing some visual aids to help them understand what you are looking for.

Keep it Simple

Try shooting your fine art portrait photography against a plain background. This avoids distractions and puts all of the focus on your subject. It should help you experiment with conveying your message through the subject alone. You’ll be forced to find more interesting perspectives, get the subject to strike a pose, or get creative with things like makeup, costumes, props, or lighting.

Find a Location with Meaning

Alternatively to the idea above, you could put more focus on the location and use it to help convey your message. It could be a spot with interesting architecture, beautiful natural lighting, or a location where your subject looks out of place. Some locations can bring a lot of significance, like how including a church in the background would carry more significance than a non-identifiable building. In this way, a location can help add meaning to your photography art.

Try Some Self-Portraits

If you don’t have models to work with or would just be more comfortable experimenting on your own, consider trying some self-portraits. Besides giving you more control over your fine art portrait photography by doing everything yourself, self-portraits can make a great addition to your online portfolio.

That’s because they give people a chance to see the artist behind all of those great fine art photos. This can help you forge a connection with your audience and potential buyers.

Architectural Photography
Architectural photographers take photographs of buildings and other built structures in a professional capacity. 

Their photographs are often intended for commercial purposes, for the developer to publish online or in brochures, or for the portfolios of the project team. As potential buyers and clients are often drawn to properties by an image, it is very important that attractive photographs are made available, and the right photographs can be very valuable to those who commission them.

Architectural photographers may be trained photographers who have specialised in architecture through their career, or they may have a background training as an architect or related profession.

There are a number of things to consider when commissioning architectural photography.

  • TDS Photographers have different styles and philosophies 
  • We set out the nature of the commission in writing to avoid possible confusion or disputes about what is required and what usage rights are permitted.
  • We Decide whether the requirement is for images as a record, or for sales, or whether the client is interested in the creative style of the photographer themselves.

TDS photographers may choose to display some of the building's environment or interesting angles and perspectives. We Often, controlled perspectives with an emphasis on vertical lines that are non-converging and parallel are used.

Exterior architectural photography

Exterior architectural photography can use natural light or ambient light, while interior photography will often require the introduction of additional lighting, such as electronic flash 'strobes' or incandescent 'hot lights'. This can require more time to set up, but is ultimately more controllable than exteriors, where the light changes, shadows move, people and traffic pass by and so on.
