Since many people ask how I make my product shots, I decided to whip up a product shot “how-to” article, which I started recently, and just finished today. This page contains information about how I make my product shots, using cheap lighting equipment, standard photo editing software, and of course, a Sony camera and lens. I’m not an expert in taking product shots, but I think I do a decent job with what I have. I’ve tried to duplicate and compare my shot in the article to Sony’s press release shot for the Sony DT 50mm F/1.8 SAM lens.
I point out the differences, and my mistakes at the bottom of the page. Click on the pictures to go to the “product shot article.”
