Some tips for getting a good product photo

Some tips for getting a good product photo These are general guidelines – each shop is different. A key thing to keep in mind is that not only do the photos need to look good, they need to look consistent, so that you don’t have a hodgepodge when you put them all together in a collection like this (a work in progress): Some tips for getting a good product photoShoot against a neutral (and preferably the same) back drop (such as white). If using fabric, iron it first. Bring the subject forward from the background to put the background out of focus. Preferably take at least 2 shots of each product.

Make the angle, range and exposure as consistent possible so you get a nice even look on the group collection pages e.g. http://www.fetchclothing.com/collections/bottoms Give the .jpg files really descriptive names, both for your sanity, and for SEO (so that Google image search picks up the photos).

Your products for Shopify should be saved at web quality (Photoshop's 'Save for Web' option)  at a maximum of 2048 x 2048 pixels.
