help with photographing projects/
I've been trying for a while to photograph my polymer clay inside bottle charms, but the insides always end up a bit blurry...any advice?
I have a nikon point-and-shoot camera
Use natural light and neutral backgrounds If you have to take photos inside, make sure the photo shoot area is well-lit from every angle.
would a light box help, you can get them on ebay or there are lots of tutorials online that will show you how to make them!
I think a light box will definitely help you. You will want to take pictures with a white background so nothing is shining through that will detract from what's in the bottle. Or, if what is inside is white, maybe a darker background. Either take pictures outside on a sunny day, or have LOTS of lamps that you can aim at the light box.
My light box is just a cardboard box. Three sides have rectangular holes cut out, with computer paper taped over them. (Tissue paper is much better, though!) Then I have one long piece of white paper taped to the top of the back of the INSIDE of the box. Do not crease this paper, you want it to curve, so that the bottom of the paper is resting flat on the bottom of the box.
I might have to make something like that soon. Thanks for including a photo ^.^
Found a tutorial on here!
Thanks for the advice! I've tried using a light box before, but the background turns out a grey color, even if I take it in the daytime in natural light and after photoshop
However, I've been taking pictures earlier in the day with natural light and just adjusting them on photoshop, and it seems to be working
