With the advent of the digital camera, there are more people shooting pictures of their products for use on the Web and in other areas of their promotional campaign. This leads to some great pictures and some really awful ones.
The folks who created Bling It have created a short video (go ahead, it’s free) that gives you some pointers on getting better pictures. Some of their top suggestions:
- Don’t use a flash
- Fill the frame with the product
- Try to shoot in natural daylight
- Hold the camera still. Use a tripod or steady your arm on a wall or table.
If you aren’t already familiar with Bling It, it is a cool utility that takes plain product shots and adds “bling” to them to help them drive more sales. All things we could do in Corel PHOTO-PAINT, but it makes this exact task very easy to do.
