I go back and forth on doing my own product photography. The ones I have tried to do myself, even while using good online instructions, don’t turn out well. It’s partly a lighting and equipment issue, also my lack of knowledge. Right now I’m outsourcing but it’s expensive. Part of me says go take a photography course, but my gut says hire it done and do myself what I do best, which is the other stuff. Thoughts? (These are not one-off products from RA; price point is $40 – $120.)
is right. Also the time you are spending on photography should be spent on expending your business. Your time is money and dont forget it. A nother important thing many sellers fail to understand is that profesional photographer has many years of experience with newunses that they were facing with.
I do all my own photography. I can usually take 8 or 9 pics and process them in Photoshop in less than an hour… an I am no photoshop pro, but the same process is used every time. I picked this up for lighting and drape the cloth over a 6′ folding table that I use for sorting and packing.http://www.amazon.com/LimoStudio-Photo…/dp/B00LV46738
Meant to post this before, but here is the process I follow in Photoshop. Depending on colors in the product you may have to use the [Alt key] Magic Wand to unselect and History Brush to show parts that may have been erased during the process. Threre are a few other little tips and tricks, but this will get you 98% of the way there. https://www.ndsu.edu/…/Removing_a_green_screen…
