Due to the increase of online shopping through the opening of web shops, product photography has become ample in providing the consumer with the most accurate representation of the product they see online. There are many ways to make this possible.
A light tent is a quick and easy way to produce beautiful photos of small products. The tent’s cloth filters and softens the light. The internal reflection in the box makes it look like the light comes from every direction. So the light is distributed evenly over the product.
You can use these light tents with flash lighting or daylight lamps. The background can be white, for immediate use in a webshop environment, or chroma blue, which can easily be removed with chromakey software.
This way, the products “floats” with no background, so you can replace the background with another image or a colour of your liking.
Photo Shooting Tables
Photo tables are the most vertatile option for product photography. You can use two or more lights with light stands, or use various clambs and arms to mount the lights directly to the table.
The big advantage is that you can place one or two lights under the table’s surface. The light from beneath lights up the table, which eliminated the shadows cast by the object on the table. With a product shooting table, you can also take pictures from different angles quickly, including from the top.

FLC-Series Ring Lights
The FLC-Series ring lights are available in a 28W (comparable to 140W normal light) and 40W (equal to 200W normal light) version.
When you use a camera flash (the built-in pop-up flash or a Speedlite no top of the camera) with macro photography, the light is too far above the product. It will make the product cast a sharp shadow. It wraps the light around the product and light is distributed evenly.
