Product Photography

Happy Friday ya'll! Another long awaited weekend is ahead of us which means I have time to take some product photos!


Some of you may know this about me already but I used to do a lot of photography and originally intended on starting my own photography business years ago. I even have a Facebook where I posted a lot of my work that is now sadly neglected. I ,unfortunately, am more of an introverted individual on my own and knew that in order to do this type of work you kind of had to be a one on one people person. So, my small dream of photography went by the wayside and I was left with quite a bit of photography equipment.


If you look back at some of the cup photos you will probably notice how the angles and lighting have improved. Well, that's because I had completely forgot that I had all of this equipment just laying around in my garage! I got out all of my lighting equipment excitedly and also saying to myself


"You're such a bozo, why didn't you remember you had all this at your disposal?! My photos are gonna look so bomb now!"


Yep, that's how I talk to myself. Now that I type it out it sounds a little cringey, not going to lie. I am going to insert a few pictures of what my setup looks like and the end results of my product photos. I warn you it does look like a chaotic mess looking from the outside. It always does when you have to position a bunch of lights for the perfect photo of a product. Especially when your product is high gloss like my cups or glass objects.



 

This is the setup I use. Two shoot through umbrella lights and two soft box lights. Right now I just have a large piece of faux fur as a backdrop to sit products on. I plan to eventually get more backgrounds and props to add more fun to the product photos.


This kit I got off of amazon and honestly the type of lighting from the two different lights is similar. Both give a soft smooth light on the subject.




I could get a reflective umbrella and it would give a more sparkly effect but I like to keep my photography as simple and accurate to original as possible. You'll notice I have the one box light high up and that is so I have a light straight down on top of the subject. I make sure the product is fully incased in light so it is fully lit up.

Final Product shots!









I use my Android phone for photos. I do have a Nikon D3200 Camera but using my phone makes posting to social media more streamline. I do very little editing, if any, been as these are just my personal products.


There you go! Some behind the scenes of my product photography!


Have a great weekend Peach Fam!
