PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY DIY TUTORIAL



hello wonderful human beings and welcome back so some of you may know those that follow me on Instagram and on my snapchat that I'm not just a photographer but I'm also an Amazon private label oh now what that means is that I get products manufactured and then branded and then I saw them on the Amazon Marketplace and one of the steps in that process is to actually take photographs of your product ads of any product based business if you want to learn more about the Amazon process and how you can make money online just click the link in the description and you'll you'll be taken to that but back to today's video so one of my products arrived today that I actually have to take photos of so I thought I'd just show you that process and how I go about doing it now if you're selling something online or if you own a product based business photography is probably not at the top of your list of priorities or if you're a brand new photographer or photographer that's starting out and you don't have a lot of money to to drop on expensive gear and expensive camera equipment then I'm going to show you a quick and easy method that you can use to take professional photographs of your product so let's get right into it you're going to need a couple of things first a plain white matte card or piece of cardboard some tape another piece of paper or whiteboard that you can use as a reflector a wall a desk or a table and a window that's essentially all you need for this now what you're going to do is you're going to have your table pressed up against the wall then you're going to take your card and tape it to the table create a slight curve in the card and then tape it to the wall now what this does is it creates a seamless backdrop and it's exactly that it's a backdrop without any seams in it there's no corners there's no sharp edges and it's gonna minimize shadows on your background now you're just going to drop your product into the scene onto your white backdrop now as you can see it doesn't look too bad but there's some detail being lost in the shadows now that's where our foam board or DIY reflector comes into play just going to drop that into the scene on the side that's farthest from the window and what that's gonna do is reflect some of the light back into the shadows on your product and give it some detail and add a bit of a 3d look to it now you can already see that it's starting to look a little bit better now you can either use your camera if you're a photographer or if you don't have a camera you can use your phone as most of us have one of these so you're gonna frame your shot with a little bit of white space around your subject and you're gonna take the photo now depending on how bright your scene is or how well lit it is you may need to do a little bit of editing now you can either open this up on your computer in Lightroom or you can use your phone and download a free app like Snapseed to edit your photographs and it'll be perfect so all you're going to do is add a bit of brightness bump up the shadows a little bit and maybe add some sharpening and your product will be ready to go don't forget to take a variety of shot of your products from different angles detail shots wider shots for all the variations that you'll need on your Amazon listing now if you really don't want to edit your own photos you can send them to people online who edit them for you or retouch them so you can either use things like up work or Fiverr and just contact a retouch on there that'll edit your photos for you at a very reasonable rate now once your photos all ready it's time to just upload them to your Amazon listing or to your product page or Shopify store or wherever you'll be using them and start making some sales it really is as simple as that to get started with white backdrop product photography so let me know in the comments below how your photography wins and if you were able to get some good shots and as I said in the beginning of this video if you want to join the Amazon alpha wolf pack and get more information on Amazon just click the link in the description and you'll be taken to that page and as always thank you guys so much for watching I really do appreciate it I shall see you in the next video Cheers
