External Tools To Capture Great Photos On Your Phone Camera
Are you planning on buying a DSLR? Wait! Did you know that you already have a great camera for amazing product photography? Well, search in your pocket and you shall find your smartphone. Not to mention, it’s convenient. It might sound a little crazy but with progress in technology, it is absolutely achievable. With the help of a few external tools below, you can achieve startling results.
You must have heard that smartphone cameras have external lenses. Well, keeping them handy is a good idea. Also they aren’t heavy to carry around. To avoid zooming from your phone’s camera to create a macro product image, you will need a telephoto or macro lenses as your inbuilt smartphone camera could only focus from a certain distance. Also make sure to keep your smartphone’s camera lens clean. You must carefully clean it if it’s picked up dust and splodges. Avoid keeping your phone in your pocket along with coins, keys and other objects that could possibly scuff the lens.
Gorilla Pod Mobile
The Gorilla Pod Mobile product is a great arrangement which comprises a stand and a mount altogether. This is a pretty compact tripod that can simply be positioned on a table as you click your pictures. It’s very flexible and can be used in several positions depending on the condition.
Consider using a table so that your product takes a pew, which will make it easier for you to capture your artifact throughout the shoot. Depending upon the type of image steadiness apparatus you choose to use, it would be easy to support your smartphone on the table as well.
Use a light grey or white backdrop behind your product to offer your snaps a fresh and stable look and to eradicate diversions. You can build your own backdrop simply by using a rolled paper, a sheet, foam board or a wall.
Amid all the other possibilities for lighting, the best option is the natural window light. It is simple and budget-friendly. Keep your object and equipment near a large window to allow plenty of light to enter your frame. However, if natural light is tough for you to find, try getting a lightning kit or a larger lamp depending on how big your object is.
Last but not the least, with the help of third party editing apps, you can quickly give that final touch to your post processing workflow.
Camera geeks would ordinarily approve that there’s nothing better than a DLSR, but there’s no refuting that the right tools actually lift your photography game to the next level. It is also a fact that art is only as good as the artist and so a DSLR is by no means obligatory to create an outstanding piece of photography.
