In Product Photography for E-Commerce, designer Dane Howard shows how to take professional-looking photographs that showcase products and build buyers' trust. Using a practical approach, Dane covers objects from collectible coins to real estate, and the lessons can be applied to just about anything that can be sold online. When it comes time to capture images in the studio, Dane discusses how to select a camera and other equipment on any budget. He shares his favorite tips and tricks for getting the most out of camera angles, backgrounds, and scene lighting. He reviews image editing basics, such as cropping and retouching photographs, and explains how to take a presentation beyond a 360-degree view with the integration of rich media.
One of my favorite tips is tip number four. How do you bring context using backdrops? Now, a product photography shot doesn't always have to be against white. You can bring a style. You can bring a flavor directly to the shot itself, whether that's playfulness, like in these shots here, or something more functional that shows a size relationship. The importance of context in backdrop brings size, relationship and character to your product photography. Now this can be enormously fun and you can bring your own style just as these cameras have their own style, almost as if they've turned into humanistic kind of robots right in front of you.
Have fun with this, tip number four, using context and backgrounds.
