Product Photography – Take Great Photos Of Your Merch With Your Phone

Today, mobile phones are less about making a call and more about everything else. Capturing that Instagrammable moment and getting the content right out there for everyone to see RIGHT NOW!

That being said, we don’t need to get into the technology being put into smartphones. We’ve all seen the fidget spinner memes about a certain popular brand. The question is, do you even need a DLSR camera to take good photos of your merch for the web? We think – probably not. 

You’ve got your merch, so let’s jump right in and take some shots using some of the built-in features on (most) smartphones.

Working From Home – Bobbi Rae

#workingfromhome is a way of helping out newcomers to the home studio life and hopefully reassuring people that it’s possible to be productive while everything around you is up in the air.

 

Number five in a new series of self isolation insights, we’ve been trying to sit down with Bobbi Rae for the best part of a year now. She’s on a real hot streak and this COVID-19 situation couldn’t have come at a worse time in a lot of ways. But it’s all about adapting and turning things into a positive. Bobbi also imparts her wisdom on late mornings and late nights and how it’s important to work when it’s best for you, rather than conforming to a structure just because it’s what everybody does.

Product Photography – How To Set Up A Home Studio

I am sure that the announcement on Monday the 23rd of March didn’t come as a shock to most people. At Awesome we are lucky to have invested in photography equipment over the past few years, but do you really need to? A lot of us have found ourselves working from home, it is true to say that many of us will be getting to know our own four walls intimately over the next three weeks or so.

 

Because of this we thought it would be a great time to show you that you don’t need to spend loads of money (or even time) setting up a small corner of your home to get those all important white background product shots for your Etsy, website or Instagram. We will also take you step by step through our process of refining the images to get the best results using photoshop – on a budget.

Working From Home – Drew Millward

#workingfromhome is a way of helping out newcomers to the home studio life and hopefully reassuring people that it’s possible to be productive while everything around you is up in the air.

 

The third in an ongoing series (as long as this lockdown lasts) of self isolation insights, we speak to the man behind all your favourite Leeds based illustration work, Drew Millward. There was an ultimately unsuccessful coup a few years to install Drew as the King of Leeds, but his legend grows stronger every day, as does his work. Even fatherhood can’t keep him down, but will this virus? Read below to find out…
