Common Mistakes in Product Photography

by Ether Artsus Professional Product Photographer

Product Photography is done by any good photographer with a creative mindset. What makes a photographer a good one is being perfect and not doing common mistakes mentioned below:


  • Not shooting enough angles

When shooting a product, you want to shoot it from as many angles as possible. Customers want to see close-ups, extreme close-ups, side views, back views, textures and colours. You want to know your product. And that means studying it and admiring it from all sides. You can get inspired by amazon photography (NYC), they are experts at their pace.

  • Photos with crowded backgrounds

You don't need a professional studio to shoot products. However, you need to be careful to take the photo in a well-lit place and avoid crowded backgrounds. You may not have the resources to take studio-quality photos. However, a piece of white paper to cover the background can also help.


  • Photos in low light

You can only take high-quality photos with a modern smartphone - as long as appropriate studio lighting is available. Proper lighting is very important for good photos.

Even if you don't invest in a professional DSLR or mirrorless camera, tripod, or similar professional equipment, you will need to purchase some photo lights to store your product.


  • Using photos from other websites

Of course, it's tempting to copy photos from the manufacturer's website and add them to the product list. In some cases, you can simply use photos from the manufacturer or dealer - if they allow it.


However, you can NEVER use real photos from other people's shops or websites without their permission. This goes without saying for the customer simply using a ready-made image of the product that the manufacturer or supplier has sent you. This can make them a little more suspicious of the quality of your product.


  • Not preparing product or background


You need to make sure your product looks flawless and sleek before swallowing it. For example, if you are photographing a dress, smooth it out and make sure it is completely clean before you start shooting to make it look its best. Whenever you take a picture with an electronic device, you need to wipe the screen and device with a microfiber cloth to remove dust, dirt and grime. You can see and learn from the websites and have an idea for example product photography (Tampa) done by some famous photographers.
