Lighting is one of the most important factors in creating beautiful photos of your products. Today I'm comparing various lighting techniques. All of these photos are straight from the camera with no editing. (its recommended to edit photos as necessary, but that is for another post)
|camera mounted flash|
|overhead household CFL lights|
|outdoor in full sun|
|outdoor in open shade|
|indoor with low window light, no reflectors|
|indoor with window light and reflectors|
Keep in mind that none of these photos have been color corrected or adjusted for brightness and contrast. The majority of photos will need to have slight adjustments, especially if your camera is set to auto-exposure. It is important that you experiment what works best for your products.
