Selecting the best product angle for photography can be a difficult and frustrating experience, especially if you’re not sure what you’re doing. There are a few things you can do to make the process easier and less frustrating.

Selecting a product

The first thing you need to do is figure out what kind of product you’re going to be photographing. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s actually very important. Are you photographing a small item or a large one? Is it flat or three-dimensional? What kind of texture does it have? These are all important factors to consider when choosing a product angle.

Selecting angles

Once you know what kind of product you’re dealing with, it’s time to start thinking about angles. A good place to start is by thinking about how the product will be used. For example, if you’re photographing a mug, people are going to be holding it by the handle, so that’s probably the angle you want to focus on. If you’re photographing a piece of jewelry, people are going to be looking at it from all angles, so you’ll want to capture that in your photography.

Selecting lighting

Once you have an idea of the angle you want to focus on, it’s time to start considering your lighting. This is where a lot of people get frustrated with product photography because the lighting can be tricky. If you have natural light available, that’s always the best option. If not, you’ll need to use artificial lighting, and this is where things can get tricky.

The best way to avoid frustration is to experiment with your lighting before you start photographing the product. Set up your lights in the way you think they should be and then take some test shots. See how the light looks on the product and make adjustments as needed. Once you have the lighting figured out, it’s time to start taking some real photos.

Future is now

If you’re still having trouble figuring out the best angle for your product photography, a 3D product configurator can be a big help. These tools allow you to see how your product will look from different angles and with different lighting setups all within a few clicks, instead of spending hours at the photography studios. This can be a huge time saver and can help you get the perfect shot every time, for every customer but each time someone will visit your site they will have a unique experience tailored to their need.
