Mistakes to Avoid in Product Photography.

With a large collection of photoshoots under my belt, I’ve compiled a list of certain mistakes in product photography that everyone should avoid. Let’s quickly go through these common pitfalls and see how we can sidestep them.

Improper Lighting: Let’s start with the star of the scene: Light! Lighting in product photography is absolutely essential. If the light is too strong or too weak, product details might vanish. Tip: use reflectors or diffusers to balance the scene.

Noisy Background: Yes, I know, we all love creative backgrounds, but don’t forget that “less is more”. Choose a simple background so the product stands out. Beware of mismatched colors!

Cluttered Composition: Keep everything neat, not overly crowded! If you have too many elements in the frame, they can distract from the product. Think about the rule of thirds and let the product breathe.

Over Editing: Post-processing is our friend, but we shouldn’t overdo it. You don’t want the product to look unrealistic or as if it was processed in Photoshop for 10 hours, right?

Not Using Macro Mode: For fine details, the macro mode is a real hero. If you’re photographing small products or want to highlight specific details, macro is the perfect choice!

I hope these tips have been helpful. Product photography is a fascinating field, full of creativity and innovation. With some practice and by avoiding these mistakes, your photos will surely shine!
