We’ve all seen some pretty horrible product shots on eBay over the years but with today’s digital cameras taking a photo that looks even semi-pro is actually pretty easy. The big ‘secret’ though is to use plenty of light and a white ‘infinite’ backdrop. This is where the D-Flector photo studio comes in. It looks like a standard non-descript briefcase but opening it up reveals a white reflective background that’s perfect for taking product shots of smaller items.
Now you’ll probably need to play with your camera’s auto-exposure settings since the completely white background could throw off its measurements but as long as your photos aren’t overexposed a few minutes in Photoshop should give you some pretty impressive results.
The D-Flector is currently available on the Sharpics websites in 3 sizes. An 18-inch version for $89.99, a 24-inch version for $129.99 and a 30-inch version for $159.99.
