okay...so I'm not an expert. And I don't have a high end camera at all. BUT...I did see this blog post about making your own light box so you can photograph your product samples more professionally. I have many product samples of my work and need to keep better track of them instead of plunking them down on the dining room table and just shooting away. Remember this post?
Much more preferable would be showing the images as follows:
Or like this
For the Lavender scented handsoap above I added the Blue Cooling Photo Filter 82 in Photoshop because I felt the cooling hue would make it pop better.
Here is a photo of my new setup based on the blog post I saw.
I must state again that I don't have the kind of camera I can attach all the fancy lenses to. However, as you can see, I can do a pretty decent job with adjustments in Photoshop. Certainly much better than setting the things on the dining room table. This light box gives me a major jump on achieving some kind of professional quality while saving some money on purchasing an expensive ready made light box. Total cost out the door for my light box was about $20-$25. Much cheaper than buying it ready made. I have a feeling my next camera will be one with all those lenses!
Many thanks to Drawings In Motion for posting this tutorial. I know I'm going to get alot of use out of this!
