There are a limited number of times you’re going to want to be taking a picture straight down, but if you do, you’ll soon realize it’s easier said than done. It usually requires the purchase of a specialized tripod if you want to do it right. It gets even more complicated if you’re planning on shooting with an iPhone. But with the Steady Stand 200 from ModaHaus, things change.
Designed from the outset for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, Androids, Blackberrys, smartphones and most compact cameras, the STEADY STAND provides an elevated platform support for overhead product photos ensuring pin sharp, totally square-on, precisely composed, perfectly exposed photos. The clear translucent side walls soften and diffuse incoming light helping eliminate harsh shadows and provide clean uncluttered reflections in shiny subjects such as jewelry. Takes the grind out of processing documents and receipts as well!
For $34, an affordable portable product photography station could easily be thrown into your backpack and carried to wherever the client needs it.
