Website Product Photography
Often times, my clients need to have a large batch of products photographed for their web sites (which I design in most cases www.webstrategicmarketing.com ) and they have budget constraints, of course! When this is the case, I shoot the products on a product table with a translucent base. I light the product from above with continuous lighting, as I would conventionally, but then I place a strobe underneath the table. By using the lower strobe, I can create a white product background by shooting light through the table removing the need to do it in post-processing.
The example above was quite a challenge, shooting a complex black product on a white background. As you can see the background is white but not pure white. It is impossible to shoot a pure white background and correctly expose the product. That said, once shot it is very easy to create a pure white background and this then makes it very easy to clip and create a composite image.
