Post Production

Photography & Post Production Explained​

For architecture photography, we usually use natural lighting to show the real feel of the place and make it as close to what the eye can see as possible. At times we will use flash photography (strobes) when we know that the end result will be better.

Then we retouch these images in post production to make them more attention grabbing.

For 360 virtual tours, we take 20 images per position and then layer and stitch those images in post production to create an extreme HDR 360 image which is then edited in post. The number of positions created depends on the size of the premises the business is located in. The 360 images are then posted on your google listing and the virtual tour can be used on your website and facebook page (t&c’s apply).

For drone photography, we use a 4K drone which can only be done in daylight and cannot be flown within 4 kms (2.5 miles) of any aerodrome.

For product photography, we use product photography boxes and a backdrop for larger items. Then we retouch these images in and can add special effects to them such as reflections.

For headshots, we travel to you. It can either be in your office, or your home or another location organised by you. We will bring the lighting, the backdrops and everything necessary to make it work in your work environment.

We also come to construction sites, boardroom meetings, company events and take candid photos and videos of the team and/or the environment which tells a story from a journalist’s point of view. These photos and videos are used for promotional material, websites and social media posts.

Whether you have photos or videos that need professional editing, we have you covered. 
We do everything from green screen editing, motion graphics, commercials, and more. Send us a message with your idea and the material you have that you’d like edited, and we’ll provide an estimated time for completion and the price to edit it all.

Always an incredible experience working with Nicu! - we've liaised with photographers and video production companies throughout Auckland in the past but have never come across anything like this. You can tell that Vanity works with nothing but love, and the creative-minds involved really helped us with the mental-blocks we were having with some of our projects. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for photography or video production.
