What is eCommerce product photography?

Product photography tips for Magento

  • A camera: For product photography, you do not need to invest in an expensive DSLR camera when a point-and-shoot digital camera will take sufficient photos. The camera is just one part of the photography — having the right background and lighting are equally as important.
  • A tripod: We would recommend having a tripod for your product photography as it will allow you to execute the photo perfectly as you can achieve the right height and angle with precision. Especially if you are shooting using slow shutter speeds, it is mandatory to use a tripod to reduce motion blur.
  • A sweep: A sweep or white paper background is necessary for your product photo. You can find these at an inexpensive price online. You should place it on a table so it curves up behind your product against a wall, making a seamless backdrop for your product.
  • Tape: Use tape to secure your sweep to the wall during your session. You should use painter’s tape or poster tape to avoid damaging your walls.
  • Lighting: If you’re not using professional lighting such as strobe lights or a softbox, make sure you take your photo in a room with plenty of light; preferably by a window. Alternatively, Amazon sells a relatively affordable ‘photo studio’, a lightbox designed for product photography.
  • White bounce cards: A white bounce card made of foam board is essentially a cheap reflector — the white card reflects the light onto your product to reduce shadows and keep the image bright which is essential for product photography.
