You can use cloths of different design and color depending on your requirement. Place the product on the cloth and take photos, this is really a good hack for product photography.
2Take overhead shots
For taking some good overhead shots, stick a cardboard on the roof with the painter tape and place your phone after downloading a self-timer app. As the phone will be on self-timer app, it will keep clicking; you just need to give some mind-blowing poses. Such photos will definitely increase your popularity on Instagram to a great extent.
3Taking underwater shot
You just can’t afford to let your camera come in contact of water but photography is incomplete without underwater shots. For the purpose of taking underwater shots, take a fish tank, place your camera in the fish tank and submerge the fish tank in the water body and click photos. However, make sure you don’t submerge the tank completely in water.
4How to remove people from your photos
You need to set up your camera and click a photo every 10-20 seconds of the location that you want to capture. Keep clicking photos until you have clicked photos of each part of the location or scene unobstructed. Now, you need to use your Photoshop skills to remove people to get a clear photo of the location.
5Create a softbox effect using plastic bag
You can use a medium size plastic bag to create a softer effect with the camera. For this purpose, place the flash of the camera inside the plastic bag because of which a layer of diffusing object will be provided and it will result in softening of light. This will help the photographer in clicking a photo with lighting looking more natural.
