How to take photos of products

Have you been thinking about how to take photos of your art?

Happy new year, it’s 2022, I hope you guys had a good start to the year!!!

Have you been thinking about how to take photos of your art?

I have really enjoyed exploring about how artists display and style their art work. I have found some artists who are great at visually marketing their art, taking photos of the their art and displaying it in a way that hooks you in.

I have been thinking about how I could set up a place where I could take photographs to practice my photography skills. Below you can see I have simply blu-tacked the end of my Ikea drawing roll to my Imac and left the body on the table.

I love this current set up because it is just so simple and easy to set up and pack away. The natural light and the position that I have place this set up is just perfect in the way of the shadow it creates with the natural light.

What you will need:

The camera I am using is the D90 with a Nikkon Lens, 35-80 mm (zoom) 1:4-5.6D (aperture range). This lens can only function with f-stop 22 ring limiting aperture range. It’s not the best in low light but can manage in the shade but will need to be adjusted to aperture F5.6. I used 5260K WB (White Balance) on the above photographs and find that this gives me a neutral colour. At shutter speed 6 it will not need a tripod. I like this lens, it is versatile and great for portrait.

I plan on setting up this table to do some speed painting or art making videos. Wish me luck!

Have a lovely week 🙂
