Draw up a list of the most important aspects of a product photograph. Refer to shadows, lighting, quality, ISO and editing in your answer. Mention at least five things.
- ISO – below 100.
- Quality – The photographed object should be sharp.
- Lighting – set white balance to sunny and make sure that there is enough light.
- Shadows – avoid shadow, if so very soft.
- Editing – Shoot in RAW so it is easier to edit it later.
Make your own DIY light tent.
Instead of paper I used wood and Ikea laundry basket which I tested with a flash light and found out that it spreads light nicely. I used two divided layers of the fabric to maximize the effect.
For the background I used scrap of a white vinyl photo background.
2. Take product photographs of the following objects:
- Something fluffy, like a stuffed animal
- Something shiny, like a knife and fork
- Something hard, like a book or a mug
- A liquid, like a glass of wine
3. Draw a diagram of your lighting scenario for each of the above photographs and submit it along with the photographs.
