dam this is a good video. i mean a 9 minute video without someone talking nonsense. every word came out of your mouth was a teaching moment ..not someone trying to sound smart but ends up sounding stupid "yeah i've been doing photography for 20 years, and i know you want to do photography. listen all you need to is believe in yourself .. you can do it. you can do it. well i'm not going to talk , i'm goign to go ahead and show youhow to do it. by the way. if you dont believe in yourself, just close your eyes and you'll know, dream big. when i first starting doing photography i told my girlfriend. baby , i want to buy a camera.. blah blah blah blah ....." gosh man, thank you for not boring me to death. nice video

Is it a "Good Idea" to use long exposure on a tripod with a remote to white out the BG even more? I've tried that and it makes the pic brighter but what are the pros and cons?
Pradip Kotecha (16 days ago)
Hi Luke. As most of them have already said...a great video and I have just subscribed...thank you for your wonderful humbleness and sharing this valuable information. I am trying to help my son and daughter in law take product shots for ebay and amazon. Its amazon where we strugle to take great product shots with complete 100% white backgorund . A couple of questions how do create what you have just shown us which is absolutely amazing but with pure white background... and secondly what about larger products and what if they are or lighter or white in colour. Hoping you can help me over here. Is there a link to something similar you have done. Incidentally I am off to the Photography show in Birmingham at the NEC so will check out an inexpensive way to do Amazon type of photos....yours look great so will check what I can buy. Where are you based...UK? Wishing you all the very best in life.

White Picket Vintage (23 days ago)
This was a very good tutorial but I noticed a strong yellow cast on the final image. Even the white background looked kind of orange. Is that because of the paper? I already have a lot of yellow to my images and don't want more of that. What if the bulb was more blue? Would that offset it?
Vderina (24 days ago)
Wonderful tutorial! Thank you... So easy and charming
Linda Thomas (24 days ago)
Luke, do you recommend just white background, or can someone use light pastel color background, like very light green, blue or pink? thanks

I could not figure out what "Baking Paper" was. Finally found it. "Parchment paper, Baking Paper, or bakery release paper are cellulose-based papers that have been treated or coated to make them non-stick. They are used in baking as a disposable non-stick surface. They should not be confused with wax paper or waxed paper, which is paper that has been impregnated with wax."Wikipedia. Thank you for the simple, informative and effective tutorial! ~God Bless~ Colorado, USA

Wow, good job!!! I actually learned something more about photo composition... 👍📸😉
Abraham George (1 month ago)
Great tutorial. Allow me to add a few improvements from my own experience. 1. Use two or more sources of light. This is important to get a good white background. Your final picture still had a off-white background which is not good for product photography 2. Use reflectors only to really fine tune. With two or more light source you may not need reflectors. 3. Some LED lights an cause bands in the picture. You are probably better of with CFL lights as shown in this video. 4. Amazon seller app has a cool photo tool that makes most off-white background turn white. You don’t need digital cameras anymore

Taylor Cowles (1 month ago)
I am shooting with a Canon Rebel T6. I have been shooting products in the close-up auto mode, but what kind of aperture would I need for manual mode? The product pictures I am taking are coming out looking like they are floating in air because the background is coming out too white.
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
It depends what kind of look you want. If you watch my other video on camera basics 101 it might help. If the background is becoming brighter than the product then shift where your light is pointing and light the product more than the background

I went to the hardware store to look for the white board but was unable to find it. Can somebody link up a similar board for me, or at least point me in the right direction?
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Hey mate. They are called many names. It's like an acrylic white sheet or something. Or just show someone the picture and ask them to tell you what it is. Sorry I cant be more specific

I understand that you need a manual control for exposure but I missed the part about how you want it set. Otherwise, great video, mate.

Cool, thanks. I'll make further videos explaining manual settings later. You can also check out my camera 101 tutorial
