Sometimes, when you’re low on cash, you might need to sell some of your carefully collected stuff. Most people will probably do this on ebay, or maybe some other 2nd hand online marketplace (Dutch:Marktplaats.nl). It is a proven fact that having an attractive and clear picture of the item your selling makes it an easier sell. But how do you make a clear product photo like that when you’re already low on cash? Well, here’s a fast and easy way to photograph some of your smaller items.
All you need is a strong desk lamp, and some pieces of white paper, and if you have one, a tripod. A tripod will make it a bit easier, but you can do without.
So the first piece of paper will function as a background, the second will be a reflector, this will decrease the shadows.
|The background paper needs to fill both the background and the underside of the ‘mini studio’. You need to make sure that there are no folds and wrinkles in the paper, it needs to be smooth.|
You can use larger pieces of paper for larger products, and you can even use more than one light source and maybe some more reflectors. You may have to do a bit of experimentation, but the results are definetely worth it!
