Product photography is used for commercial purposes. Used for social media, advertising or promotion of the service or product sold by the business.
One of the basic forms of product photography is the one that captures directly, just the image of the product. Often used for product listings on online stores like Amazon or Etsy, these photos are often taken with a white background to limit distractions. Product-only images show details such as product size, appearance and color. These details help consumers find exactly what they are looking for when shopping online.
Before you start your product shots, make sure you connect with your customer and find out exactly what they want. Are there any special angles they want for the product? Does the label need to appear in every shot? Planning makes perfection, so gather the information you need before you shoot the photo shoot.
