How lighting effects product photography

This is one of the biggest mistakes in product photography. The camera-mounted flash will make your product look washed-out and contrasted.

Reflectors & natural light

Natural light is the best way to take excellent product photos. Make the most of the natural light by using reflectors, or making your own light box

Backgrounds & props

Consider experimenting with different backgrounds until you find what flatters your product. Use only backgrounds that fit with your product's theme or your brand. Start with a plain background then, try different combinations of colors, patterns, and textures, including staged shots. Don't forget to experiment with props, too! 

Placement & cropping
Read about the Rule of Thirds and Negative Space to make your photos more dynamic, and grab your customer's attention.
