How to shoot handmade products so that the photos are like with a magazine cover
It’s no secret that successful sales of handmade products on the Internet depend on 90% of the photos. Let the product brightly be brilliantly and all of him straightely buy, but the photos are made on a Chinese smartphone curve, there is no focus, everything is gray and ineffect — forget about good sales.
Good photo — sign of respect to the buyer.
Each buyer subconsciously thinks: «If this master did not bother to make good photos, then what to talk about the works ourselves?».
I know at least five masters who could simply break the Internet with their works, but they have photos just seams.
That is why we are wearing every work as with a writer Tuba. For any, even the smallest brooches, the cheapest earrings need beautiful photos. And photographing the glass, I will report you, also hemorrhoids. It is necessary to select not only the desired perspective, background, composition, but also wait for the right light. Some products are removed only with bright sunlight, others only with scattered clouds.
And this is ready for the product, and you sit and wait, when there are on the nebushka, the fucking electricians, they jerk for the fucking chopper and give the right light. But, since I don’t have a Bolt there … About the law of meanness you all know.
And so this heavenly electrician got me that I tried to organize photo-light by collective farm methods in a separate workshop. She screwed the LED lamps, bought just three lamps on ordinary lamps, even hiking tent lamps tried to put on stands.
You know, it is possible to remove with such a light. But the biggest problem is that it is impossible to change the color, shine and all shades of glass: it is yellow, it is blue, then the batteries sat down, then blinks …
Therefore, it was decided to allocate money and buy light. But the way in the distant sight we have a plan to shoot a video, it was necessary to combine three incompatible things. Even five:
Possibility to shoot video
-This could be moved at any time, roll and remove.
I studied the Internet along and across. The problem is that on expensive sets of light reviews is full — it is understandable, dear things everyone wants to spread — promotional feedback mass. And on the cheap sets of light of feedback Rovno 0, no one wants to write about them the truth.
I risked and bought one of the cheapest sets of Light Rekam.
What to say? Not lost!
So, what it is, which gives, what advantages and what minuses.
This is a permanent photo-video light. With him you can do amazing, practically gentle photos, capture shine. And since the lamps are shine in the same range and closed with a thin material, then all colors and shades are simply amazing.
Since it is a permanent light, then you immediately see the light pattern. And it is damn cool! Lamps are shine always with the same force, so you can configure the light diagram once (there are examples in the manual) and forget.
Made a job, put on the table, turned on the lamp and Alga with the songs! All photos are made simply once or twice. The most important thing for any master is time saving.
By quality. Yes Set Super-Diet, but I knew what she went. That is why I took a REKAM. This company does not only cheap, but also very expensive kits, the cost of which breaks through 1 million. So the manufacturer is reliable. Although, naturally, everything is done at the plants of glorious Chinese.
I specifically chose a set in which there were two illuminators of 4 lamps in each. There are sets with three illuminators, but it is already an excess, cumbersome, and expensive.
But the lamps can be turned off in pairs.
The set comes in a box inside which is a large bag. Everything can be folded into it and put in the storage room.
Illuminators (softboxes) are completely disassembled. The main thing is not to put great strength — remember Chinese.
Racks are also harps — a lot of plastic. But, as the lighter lights themselves, there is a margin of safety. Professional racks that stand slightly large load are 9 times more expensive. So the wallet votes for savings.
The huge plus is that the illuminators can work for hours.
Want to take pictures of streaming, you want to shoot a video — no difference. The quality is excellent. So the workshop looks like when we began to shoot a video. The eyes do not blind, but everything is clearly visible on the cameras. Video quality has grown at times.
Now let’s talk about the shortcomings. Their three:
Short power cords.
With long work, the lamps are basked simply!
The cost of spare lamps.
For one lamp, cunning beetles are asked for 1800!
What will you have to buy?
It may be in a cunning Chinese and want to sell the lamps of 1800, but in poor Russia, such money is not ready to pay. Therefore, you can boldly blow into the nearest electrical store and buy 4 LED lamps with a capacity of 24 watts. The power of the illuminator will even increase. The main thing is that the temperature is 5500K.
The commodity widget is inserted for informational purposes, no one forcing anywhere. I bought for my money for my own work. Ask the manufacturer to make me at least some kind of money asked.
