Covid 19 Update 3.

Since March for the sake of the safety of our staff and your staff, we moved all staff to home working.

Although our doors have remained closed to the general public, we are still available should you have a hire and we are still taking enquiries for post lockdown work.

As before, all kit will continue to be thoroughly sanitised with alcohol detergents between hires.

Our office may be shuttered but our phones and emails will still be answered.

Collection and drop off of kit will continue to be by appointment only and social distancing will be observed.

We wish you all well and hope you will be understanding that these conditions are for everybody’s benefit.

 

Covid 19 Update 2 – March 17th

As of Wednesday the 18th March, for the sake of the safety of our staff and your staff, we are moving all staff to home working.

We have put in place everything we need to do this.

Our office will be shuttered but our phones and emails will still be answered and we will still be able to service hires but collection and drop off of kit will be by appointment only.

As before, all kit will continue to be thoroughly sanitised with alcohol detergents between hires.

We wish you all well and hope you will be understanding that these changes are for everybody’s benefit.

COVID 19 update.

While we understand how frightening current events are, there is also, for now at least, a need to try and carry on – albeit with some new attention to the situation we are currently in.

So for now at least, our doors remain open. Should we be required to close, we have made provision for all staff members to work from home wherever possible and our phones and emails will continue to be answered.

To keep our staff and your staff safe, we are sanitising all equipment between rentals and all work surfaces and doors are being disinfected multiple times a day and staff are using disposable sterile gloves.

If there is any change to the ways in which we need to operate, we will post it here and on our social media channels.

But to reiterate, we are open for business, almost as usual.

Black Satins

By popular demand….Black Satin filter kits (1/4 – 3) in PV and 6×6 now in.

 

 

 

Tiffen Black Satins can be applied to purposely reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles while providing an intentional warming effect with granularity over an entire image. This can be useful for creating a more flattering result of a subject while highlights are softened, contrast is reduced, and textures are given a smoother appearance. Additionally, halations around highlights are created which can further enhance a subject’s appearance or produce a desired effect while overall sharpness is maintained.
