Setting up your space
Build your own e-commerce photography studio. It not necessary be buying a room or shop or separate flat to have your photo shoot, your own house can be a good studio. Just cover the room window’s with a thick cloth to block all the light and make it dark so you can use your own amount of light required to perfect shot. If you’re shooting smaller products, a simple table set close to the wall in an room makes an ideal shooting space. If your product is larger, just ignore the table. Be sure to check your surroundings whether there are fluorescent lights overhead? Make sure those are turned off while photoshoot. Avoid bright rooms with fancy bright colors. If you can’t, cover the bright areas with white cloth or paper. Remember too that shiny products will reflect whatever’s around including you.
Our eyes can adopt different light conditions right from the bright sun shining to the dull lights in the evening. But if the lights are not proper then it will impact on image quality and will result in bad impression. Thus good light is a key ingredient to successful photo shoot .If you’re using natural light, position your product near a window where it can get even, indirect light. .You might be thinking more light will click the better pictures, right? Wrong. When you have both natural and artificial light going on, you’re mixing sources, and that can make it impossible to properly white balance the image. This is especially bad when both light sources are hitting your subject! So control the light sources, and stick to just one.
Edit to perfection
After shooting, it’s time to prepare your product image for the website. Objective is to give your image professional looks while maintaining optimal performance.. This is most beneficial step to outsource, since digital assets are easily transferrable and the time and cost savings are significant. If you would rather do it yourself, you should ensure your post-production process addresses cropping, alignment, color correction and background removal in order to maintain a consistent and professional appearance. Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are two powerful programs which will assist you to manipulating photos. If you have these programs and have basic or no knowledge then no need to worry, there are tons of great tutorials out there on how to use them. Try to add a shadow effect to the product which will give it a realistic look.
Let your photos tell your product’s story
When the product is displayed, there should be a short description to the product. We know you love your products, but that doesn’t mean you should write an essay in describing them which can tiresome to read by the customer. Your product descriptions can add a little fun, but there’s no need to make it dizzy. Basically, people just wants brief about the product to make the buying decision. Let your photos do the communication.
Your images need to highlight what’s important about your product. Should think from the buyer’s perspective, not yours. As customers cannot see the product physically and you can’t expect buyers to make purchases looking at one angel picture. Multiple photos taken from different angles build a complete picture for buyers, while close-ups can help them appreciate design details or less noticeable features.
