so my boss has been on my case about a bunch of missing product pictures from our web store, so i decided to start taking photos of the stuff in the warehouse and uploading them. i always loved the way that the zach arias photos look with his white background and the slight reflection, so i wanted to try to go for that look. most of the products we sell are smaller so i didn't want to get a huge 4x8 sheet of something when i only needed maybe a 2ft square max. plus i don't have room for that much stuff at work or in my jeep to carry it there. i wandered around home depot today looking for something similar that came in a smaller piece, but no luck. so i went to walmart to look there, and as i was walking by the school supplies, i saw something that would work, a dry erase board. so i grabbed that and a roll of plain white wrapping paper to set up my product shoot. when i got home, i pulled the frame apart, because all i wanted was the white shiny board then i set everything up so i grabbed a couple of items from around the kitchen that resembled shit i would be taking pictures of at work and snapped a couple test shots. these all have just minimal adjustments in lightroom, basic white balance and exposure. i want the pictures to be as close to ready to go straight from the camera as possible because of the sheer number of products i will have to photograph.
