Recently, I have tried expanding my photography skills to indoor and outdoor product photography. It has been a bit difficult because I am not used to shooting indoors or designing staged photos. Although, it has been a great learning experience for me! I have used other websites, like this one, to help me learn what to do before shooting. If there is one tip that I would share with everyone about product photography, it would be to check your photos right after you take them before shooting a bunch back to back. In one of the designs I was taking photos of, my focus was on the wrong part and the lighting was slightly off. It takes extra time, but check your photos constantly!
Indoor Product Photography
While on a photography retreat in Island Park, I received a lot of practice with shooting indoor and outdoor product photography. We had different stations that allowed us to use numerous lights, techniques, and products to attempt different shots. This is how they turned out!
Food photography is way fun, but it is also difficult to get the right angles and to portray what you are photographing. My advice would be to try many different angles and lighting techniques until you find the one that looks the best in your opinion.
Outdoor Product Photography
Outdoor product photography is also not the easiest but it was easier for me than indoor. I relied on natural light and nature to take my photos and they turned out great. I just added some water drops from the nearby river and took some leaves and shrubs from the ground and the setup was complete and natural!
