I was asked recently to help some friends with a mini-“product shoot” for some beautiful angel ornaments that they were making to raise funds for a Habitat for Humanity project. The first batch of photos were needed in a hurry so I had to come up with a DIY mini home studio real quick. I grabbed a roll of mahjong paper (basically big white sheets of paper) on the way home from work, thinking I could use them as a cheap backdrop. In the end, I just used an A4 sheet of paper propped up against a desk light, and the mahjong paper ended up being a pretty good reflector instead. I wish I had taken some pictures of the setup but it took no more than 10 minutes to setup and even less to tear down.
I think I didn’t do too badly for my “first time”. A little rough at the edges, but with a little work in Photoshop, the photos turned out okay. At least my friends seem pleased with it.
I dropped by the “angel-workshop” on Saturday and took some more photos. Response has been great for the angels so far and they are selling out fast. Great work guys!
