Product Photography Backgrounds

The background you use can make or break your product photography. If you are attempting to do the photos yourself, then think carefully about the background and make sure you have nothing in it which will distract from your product.

I have a number of different options that I can use to show your products off to their very best.

The classic "pack shot" is taken on a cream/white background and can bring continuity through different photo sessions.

I also have a couple of wooden backgrounds. These are new and I've only done head shots on them but it gives you an idea.

I also have a mantlepiece which is good for showing off frames and framed artwork with neutral colours.

If you're looking for something a little different, I can take photographs in my back garden. This was taken against a trellis with ivy on it. I offered the client the choice of a plain background or this one and she loved this. I've used some of my own boxes as props but you can bring anything you like to dress your set.
