General Photography


Product photography isn't just something professionals can have a go at as it's quite a fun thing to try at home, with trinkets, make-up, glassware and whatever other objects you have hidden away. Perfecting your product photography skills will also mean that next time you want to sell something on a well-known auction site, your product shots will be much more appealing. 

A popular look for product photography is when the product you're taking a photo of is placed on a reflective white background so the item really 'pops' from the image. It can be a tricky thing to perfect but as this video shows from workphlo, if you use white plexiglass as your shooting surface and follow a few simple rules, you'll be improving your product shots in no time. There's also a great section on the post work that's involved in creating a high-end looking image like this and Dustin, the photographer in the video, has recently shared another top tutorial all about creating dramatic looking product shots that is well worth checking out.
