another great backdrop idea is spandex. I use it for larger backdrops with a pvc frame. you can get it up to 60″ wide and it stretches to almost 8′

Thanks for your helpful article. The one question I have been trying to figure out is the best way to add a completely different background to my images so they stand out next to all the other white ones from other sellers. Is there any tips or websites you recommend that will guide me on how to make possibly a grey gradient background that is soft and then you can see somewhat of a reflection on the bottom. Any tips or recommendations on website that can help me with that, I’d greatly appreciate it. Just a quick note, I sell high-end handbags and accessories which I saw that bag you used above… bought maybe you knew what the best colors are for handbags, asap. Thanks again!

Any tips regarding product pictures that are ‘too warm’? Some of our product pictures aren’t coming out in the same color we shot them as… for example, dark brown comes out lightish brown. Still trying to figure it out since we’re trying to ‘professionalize’ our images and make our customer shopping experience more pleasant.

Thanks for these! They have helped :-).

Great tips! I am struggling with taking some pictures of my jewelry, I want a background that compliments the piece but doesnt mess up the lighting.
Thanks for your insight!

If you have a flash for your SLR camera, a great piece of kit to give a nice soft light on your products, and no shadows, is the orbis ring flash. Invented right here in NZ and sells around the world! And it’s a great investment if you are taking a lot of product shots – or share one with a friend if you aren’t going to use it heaps.


Upfront I confess that it was developed by my husband and I, but just have a wee look at the shadowless effect you get with it. I use it for photos for selling my kids used stuff on TradeMe etc – it makes everything look so much better! He’s the pro photographer, not me (I’m the business brains!), but I find it great.
