In the last few weeks I have a few clients come to me wanting help with product photography.
So here is a few good hints and tips to general photography and product photography!
I’ve seen quite a few businesses that invest in great branding for their business which is a wonderful start but really only halfway there. They then forget to spend anything on getting good photography for selling their products or promoting their staff they lack behind in the marketing world with terrible photos and this usually ends up in low sales not good for anyone!
So below is a great video with hints and tips on taking good photos with nothing but an iPhone, it can be done. The tips this girl gives you in the video are great and the lighting rules apply no matter what camera you have. Lighting is everything!
I recently helped a client who lives six hours away from me giving her tips and ideas for her bliss balls. She wanted me to do a great design for her business but it needed a new photo so I gave her the tips to do the job. We googled some ideas for her and then this was the finished product I was so happy for her when she sent me through the photos she did take these on a proper camera as the iphone ones just weren’t working as good. But it really can be done at home saving you money but making sure you are on the mark with enticing the client to buy!
Below is a photo I took of some food. For this I used two pieces of thick foam board from Officeworks along with my lighting kit and set it all up in a well natural light area as well. You’d never know. 🙂
Below is a shot I took for LOUENHIDE some shoes for them for this we used a paper backdrop bigger than the one in the video but you could easily use smaller pieces to create the same effect for a seamless backdrop!
Below this photo of the business cards was taken on a simple piece of white A3 paper.
Below is a photography cheat sheet for you, great tips on how to use those confusing manual settings on your camera!
