Product photography

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rule # 1 – NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use your on-camera flash for taking closeup shots of small items. You will get shadows and the colors will be washed out.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rule #2 - Cleanliness We'll be shooting small items and see them bigger-than-life on screen. Any dust, schmutz or fingerprints will become obvious . It's faster to clean the items beforehand than to retouch them in Photoshop.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Background – White or black heavy paper is best. Gray works too, these colors are best because they don’t distract from the product. Thin white cardboard from in between merchandise at Sam’s works great and it’s free. Put it on a flat table and curve the back of the cardboard up behind the product.

PowerPoint Presentation:

To completely eliminate unwanted shadows, use a piece of glass laid across two white pillows. Now the object is elevated above more white. [A real pro would put the object on opal (frosted) glass lit from below .]

PowerPoint Presentation:

LENS - Products look best when photographed from afar. They look stupid if photographed from only a foot away. Stand back and use a long lens or zoom in. Macro lenses work great for very small items. SHUTTER SPEED – The objects aren’t going to move, so you can use a fairly slow shutter speed if you use a tripod. APERTURE - Best sharpness and depth of field are had around f/22~32

PowerPoint Presentation:

Glass, mirrors, or other reflective surface used as a base for your subject can create attractive reflections
