Feels like I haven't I haven't posted all weekend. Oh wait, I haven't. Sorry wonderful people who read my blog. I've been working on a little side project that took up most of my free time this weekend.
But today I thought I'd give you a tutorial on how to take some "product shots." You know, pictures of things like jewelry or food or anything that you want to take a photo of but you want it to have a white background and to be sitting on a white surface. Does this make sense? If not you'll see what I am talking about soon.
Be warned- I am NOT a professional photographer. Heck, I am not even an intermediate photographer. I'm just a girl who likes photography and taking pictures. I took a few lame photography classes while in college from a professor that was way behind in what was happening with photography in the 21 century, and I took a ton of other Mass Communication and Journalism classes. That somehow gave me enough units to graduate with a B.A. in Mass Communications and Journalism, emphasis was photography. Sigh...wasted degree and all that wasted money. Oh well, maybe one day when the kids are older I can take it up seriously.
Back to my tutorial.
First you need to set up a table next to a sunny window. Then get your supplies.
Tape, wax paper, foil or white paper, camera, and your "product."
Rip off a piece of wax paper and tape it to your window.
Then you can use your white paper or foil to lay on the surface of your table.
Then get your product ready. The closest thing next to the paper are plants my husband is growing for our garden.
So I squatted.
So I raised my little plant up higher.
Now I tried again.
So now I am ready for my REAL products.
See it worked. Now aren't you glad you kept reading?
Okay now if anyone has any tips or better ideas please let me know. I am always looking for good photography tips to better my abilities.
And if you like the bracelet, let me know, it's going up in my new etsy shop. Scurred for sho' about this! But I need to fund my craft and DIY addiction somehow.
