Nobody wants to see a straight-to-camera shot anymore, especially when it comes to products. We want to visually respond to any questions your customer may have that the product descriptions do not fully explain. That is why having a variety of camera angles is essential. You can photograph your products from various angles using your smartphone.
The ultimate goal is to photograph your product from every angle possible, providing customers with a 360-degree view of the product.
If you are unsure about which features to capture, concentrate on those that highlight the quality of your product.
Close-ups of the fabric, print details, texture, or even your products in use are ideal.
Make a point of emphasizing the details of your product, particularly those that customers may want to inspect.
I recommend moving the product rather than moving around the camera to those who are new to product photography.
By rotating the product and keeping it in roughly the same position each time, your final shots will all be framed the same.
The key here is consistency.
These are the most important camera angles to be aware of and experiment with during your photo shoot.
Eye-level: This shows the product exactly the way you see it in reality. This is recommended for your hero image.
High Angle: High angle shows the product from above as if you are looking down at it from an angle.
Low Angle: Low angle shows as you are looking at the product from down.
Bird Angle: This shows the product directly from above. As if you are standing over it.
