Simple & Easy Low Cost Product Photography Setup at Home — For Business or Fun!!

In this video we are going to show you the easiest way to create product photography setups on a budget using items you already have at home and around the house! If you want to start a product photography business, or take pictures of your products you sell on websites like Etsy, or just want to take product photos for fun, then this video is for you. We will cover backgrounds and foreground choices, props and scene decorations, lighting, and share our favorite “hacks” for inexpensive setups using everything from old tablets to garage reflector lights to shower curtains from the $1 store.

In the video we show several examples of product photography using “low key” lighting. The process is actually quite simple once you get the hang of it!
