Simple Product Photography

Selling a product that requires marketing or a store? A lot of online stores require white background photography. Whether you are selling on Amazon, eBay, Offer, Let Go, CraigsList or Etsy, white background photos will give your product a professional look. Having photos with a white background can be easily converted to transparent background and can be used on other marketing materials.

There are many ways to achieve this result. First, I have tried to use the AmazonBasics Portable Photo Studio but the results were not as desired. The light wasn't as uniform as I wanted. After many attempts, I found a solution that works for me. For background, I purchased 4 white foam boards from the Dollar Store. You can use a bed sheet and other things you have around the house. The most important stuff is the Light. I used light bulbs that were 5000k, I have tried to use flash strobes but the solution that works best for me is constant lighting. I currently use a FlashPoint Ring light. They come in 19in and 13in. In this case, bigger is better because of the larger area that the light covers. 

The other light that I use is a Yongnuo YN360. If you get one of these make sure you order batteries with it because they are not included. Other things that you need are, tripods or light stands. You can use anything you have where you can connect your light too.
My trusty Sony A7RIII and the Sony 85mm f1.8 lens does the rest of the work. Just dial in the correct settings. For this case, I used a shutter speed of 1/80th sec and f5.6 iso 200. The results it yields are so close that minimal work in post is required. Check out this before and after capture.

PS: The gear and the brand doesn't really matter. I could capture the same photo with a Nikon, Canon, Fuji or any other brand for that matter and a kit lens and other LED lights. As long as the background is pure white and you have the right amount of light you can easily do this yourself.

If you don't have the time, energy or want to invest in learning photography or gear for just a few photos, feel free to contact me. You can mail me your product and I can send it back when the photos are done. Hassle free process.
