When prepping for an online sales photography session in my Sherman Oaks studio, I always give my clients tips to ensure that their wares appear as beautifully as possible. My job involves creating product photos that resonate with viewers, and key to that is ensuring that I am photographing the best possible version of a product or clothing item that is also in the best possible condition. Forthis photo of five Dunkin' Donuts T-shirts, I decided that stacking the T-shirts to show off the designs would work better than laying all five T-shirts out flat. The clothing items had to be ironed and steamed to ensure that there were no wrinkles or folds visible. I then rolled them to stack, taking care not to crease. The end result was a photo that showed what people were buying, and that was also easily understood by the viewing audience. Photographing a product like T-shirts seems simple, but it takes a lot of time to remove all wrinkles and dust from the fabric before carefully stacking in a way that will photograph well. Carefully prepping products for photography is just as important as the photography itself.
