Haha, thank you
Car Gumapon (4 days ago)
awesome tutorial, bro. very informative. :) I would also like to seek for your expertise on this. What about if you're going to shoot a clothing, like a shirt or the likes. what can you suggest? or do you have any vid tutorial as well for that? :) TIA!
Luke Ayers (4 days ago)
You can use the same tips on a larger scale to photograph larger objects like clothes. Get imaginative. Opaque white shower curtains are good as massive light diffusers
Jeff Sparman (4 days ago)
Luke I’m inspired. Got some product to take pictures of for amazon and feeling way more confident about creating a nice image.

CreativeTitan (6 days ago)
Great job I feel like I really could do it! Question : clothing T-shirt’s how would you shoot that?
Luke Ayers (4 days ago)
You need a larger scale of the same setup. Maybe two identical lights shining through soft material from both sides. You can also use an opaque white shower curtain as a much large, but cheap, light diffuser

Laura Fox (8 days ago)
What a great video! Thank you so much for this. Amazon requires a pure white background. Any tips you can give to accomplish that?
Luke Ayers (7 days ago)
Pure white background is most easily accomplished by cutting out the background in photoshop. More of an advanced thing

Brilliant! You're welcome.
Mimi (10 days ago)
Once again, thanks to Luke Ayers for the great video!  Be careful, though. I broke my 1st CFL fluorescent bulb ever. It exploded into many tiny pieces when I must've dropped it while attempting to switch to a higher wattage. So the entire set-up, a couple runner rugs &my clothes went into garbage, but I'm intent on setting up again. I might try using an LED clear bright white (rather than soft white) bulb. Or else I'll have to hire a pro like Luke!
Luke Ayers (10 days ago)
Sounds good, Mimi 👍🏻 keep rolling

Mimi (12 days ago)
Thanks so much!  Wonderful teacher -relaxing, which helps the 'student' learn!  Question -- Can anyone tell me:  Does the reflecting full box also need to be all white (I don't mean the box lid with diffusing baking paper)?  If so, maybe I can cover the current cardboard color with white wrap paper or fabric that I have. Thanks again!
Luke Ayers (12 days ago)
Only the side of the box facing the product needs to be white. Yes you can just strap white paper or fabric over one side of an object
Tina Tiller (12 days ago)
Great demonstration. Thanks
Nadia Guarino (13 days ago)
Quick, clear and easy tutorial to follow. Thanks Luke! how would you suggest photographing jewellery? I've heard that some people use mirrors as reflectors. What would work best to capture sharp colour, details and sparkle?
