How to take a beautiful photo of an object even on slippers?
not a professional photographer, your photography equipment has the technical characteristics of a home slipper, and your subject photography skills are reduced to zero? We won’t be able to make you the finalist of prestigious photo awards, but with a certain amount of desire and patience, you will be able to share your photos with pride in social networks, worthily illustrate your articles and declare your works for creative photo contests for ordinary users of the Network.
It’s the main challenge that awaits amateur shootings of objects. Interesting and cute things come out gray and smeared just because they were filmed in the evening apartment lighting. Bright uniform light adds a hundred points to any photo. You can equip a special place for photo shootings, provide it with spotlights and display them every time. Or you can make it easier to wait until morning and take a photo in natural light. Under direct sunlight it is better not to take pictures, the midday sun time will probably have to be excluded. But morning and early evening, as well as the cloudy sky will give a clear picture with pure natural colors. Experiment with a few days of photography, when they’re over you’ll know exactly what time and light is best for your home or apartment.
Location and background
What will be visible in your picture besides what you really want to show? The scattered toys and clothes of your baby, whose first handicraft you brag about? Dirty dishes and stains from the birth of a culinary masterpiece? The working mess on the table, behind which you created an amazing handicraft work? At first, a couple of sheets of Watman or evenly coloured cardboard in a pleasant shade will correct the situation – when shooting small and medium objects, they will create a neutral flat background.
And what you have to be careful with is the spotted and blurred backgrounds. Especially if the main subject itself is bright and textured. Here you should do with a monochrome and dim background. As you gain experience, you yourself will see quite clearly situations in which a very uneven background does not kill the photo, but only makes it more interesting.
Viewing and cropping
You can’t take off some objects other than when you’re lying down. But when possible, it is better to leave some space between the object and the background. Simply move the subject of photography away from the wall (if there is one) by 5-10 centimeters.
