Do you ever look at all those photos on social media and blogs and wonder: "How can I take photos like that?"
Like a clean lens, I cannot emphasize good lighting enough.
Northern light is the best for pretty much every scenario, selfies, products, nature, and videos. So look for windows that are facing north or exposed if you’re outdoors.
If you don’t have north light inside, lighting kits work wonders and you can get them for pretty cheap too! Here’s the one I have and it was only $50 for three stands, 3 light bulbs, umbrellas, and cases to store them. It doesn’t come with a green screen so either you’d need an upgraded kit like this one or a separate purchase.
You don’t always have to have northern lighting, you can certainly move around and try different angles for unique effects. But when doing products shots, it’s best to have the images as clear and professional as possible.
For website listing, advertising, and Amazon or other sites to sell your products, use the best & brightest photos. #photography
