Product Photography At Home Shoot.
My second favorite type of photography is product photography. I love capturing items and making them look desirable so people want them for themselves! I wanted to do a product photography shoot in my apartment to prove this can be done anywhere if you have the right resources.
As you can tell from this picture, I didn’t have the best lighting in my apartment nor resources to have a classy product photography shoot. I needed to get creative and stay within a couple dollars.
After researching, I created my own “Light Box”. This is where I photographed my product photography. The best part about it, I got ALL my supplies from the DOLLAR STORE! This was cheap and got the job done.
In order to create this light box, you need a couple of things:
- Cardboard box
- Construction Paper or a Paper Board
- Tissue Paper or Old Fabric
- Three lights for the sides and tops
- Box cutter knife
Once you get the box, you cut out the top and the two sides. You place the construction paper (I chose black) in the box to create the backdrop. After that, you place the tissue paper or the old fabric in the places that you cut out. It is as easy as that! I used three lights: one for the top and two for the sides.
This was a creative, cheap and effective way to have an at home product photography shoot. Check out these final pictures!
HERE is also a video on YouTube that helps explain a similar process to create your own light box.
