Hello, all welcome to my youtube channel Thejigsaw. My name is Hari Prasath. Today I am going to show you how to shoot a product for an e-commerce..so lets we start.

Setting Up The Background & Product

Here I have a camera Canon 6D Mark II. Its a good camera for an e-commerce photo shoot. And I have a Elinchrom Frx-400 light. .today we are going to shoot the iron box.  I have kept the background colour grey because it will help me in post-production since the product colour is white. Now place the iron box in the center of the table. We will focus on the iron box.
