Product Shot

Quite a number of people have asked me how do i do my product shot. I'm sharing one of my setup with you guys. Couple of ways depending on my mood :) (cause sometimes i lazy to setup)

Yes, the setup is tedious. However, my lazyness will normally cause the drop in image quality. Took some tips from strobist.com and below is yet another product shot i have tried.

#1

#2

#3 - The most difficult part to control the light will be a shiny surface which reflect lights like the pics below

The setup was rather simple, black paper (background) and a couple of cardboards (i have used envelope because i run out of cardboard) to bounce light

    Yeah, it is lighting problem, some time i shoot with direct flash, the background seen like become dark. (i mean any portrait picture) and it did not meet what i aspect.

    does external flash light help?

    like what you do the picture, bounce the flash light in the different direction instead of direct to the object

    External flash abit. But bouncing the light off will be a better option. There where all these 'umbrella' (diffuser) and softbox come into play.

    icalvyn: it's a long term investment. Do get a good flash.
