Why is it so hard to take good product photos? We tried to take the Privvi product shots at home today. In theory, photographing four products on a white background in daylight should be easy? The quality of photograph needed for an e-commerce website is surprisingly hard to achieve (so it seems).
Before we’d even thought about composition, there was the challenge of reflection, exposure and shadow. Aside from that, blue nitrile gloves look awful on their own: wrinkly and dishevelled no matter how you photograph them. This is the best result we had – with the gloves on to try and make them look better.
I contacted a nearby studio today and I’m hoping they can find a solution. We shall see what they come up with.
