Posts Tagged ‘product shots’
About a year ago I found an awesome tutorial on creating a Lightbox (or light tent) for taking product shots. Getting objects with a plain white background always confused me because they seemed to be so well lit, but there were no shadows or anything.
I started off with a cardboard box and a tshirt stretched across the sides of the box. I then tried firing flashes on either side of the box using my Paul C. Buff triggers, but that didn’t work too well. I then went out to home depot and got two flood lights (200W each) and placed those on each sides of the box and the images became MUCH better. I never would have thought to use constant lighting, but it definitely help me with metering the exposure.
Check out some more lightbox (product shots) below as well as the rest of my Lightbox set on Flickr: Lightbox & Product Shots.
