In my last article “Top Tips for Small Product Photography” I shared with you some very simple techniques and ideas centered around making your product photography stand out from the pack. Whether you’re selling your products online or in person, it’s helpful to have great product photos. The problem for many is that hiring a professional photographer to do this type of work can be costly, time consuming and even more importantly, the final images may not convey your artistic vision. So the old adage of “if you want something done right, do it yourself” comes into play.
The focus of my last article was predominantly based on the premise of using natural light to illuminate your product. It’s free and you can accomplish a lot by simply using window light and reflectors.
This time around I want to expand your palette by introducing flash into the mix. There are several advantages to using flash over window light including the ability to work just about anywhere, anytime and shape the light in limitless ways to enhance your product. There’s no need to rely on daylight so for those of you who “burn the midnight oil,” this is a perfect option for you. In addition, using flash will significantly reduce the chance of blur from camera shake and with the wireless flash options that exist in the Canon system and a plethora of light modifiers available, you’ve got plenty of opportunity to be creative with your lighting.

This is likely a grey market item and therefore would not technically qualify for a Canon USA warranty.
Earlier than ever, you are being bombarded with Christmas ads. There is a reason for this and the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday for a reason. Retailers rely heavily on the strong Christmas shopping season sales surge that occurs at this time of the year and we want to take a moment to remind you that starting your shopping with the links on this site
is what provides the much-needed support needed to keep us here serving you.
For example, click on any of the site's B&H
links and buy a camera, lens, TV or ... anything. Or, click on an Amazon
link and buy a case of diapers. Using the links costs you nothing extra, but provides the valuable support necessary to keep us working for you. We are very grateful for that support and count it a privilege to work for you!
I'll again share my now-annual warning: Many of products shown in the sales flyers and/or emails you will receive or have already received are not going to be great deals. Just because a picture of an item along with a price does not mean that the item is a great deal.
Before jumping on these "deals", always first check the price at B&H
or any of the other reputable retailers included on the Support the Site
page. You might be pleasantly surprised to see the price you find. Most of the online retailers we work with have already started their Black Friday deals and many very good deals are currently available. You will find the links to these deals on the retailer's home pages and the deals we have shared
on the news feed are worth reviewing.
Shop online and skip the line. You will have more time to spend with family and friends and, of course, more time to spend behind the camera. Get started now
and thanks for your continued support!
