If you’re selling products online as your home-based business do you find yourself having to photograph them? I have! While I like drop shipping arrangements with vendor supplied photographs, I do also occasionally play with pallet or lot purchases. In those instances, there’s no getting around snapping my own photos.
Problem for me was that I never seemed to have the right light to shoot in. The best light for digital photography is natural sunlight, but I’m in Seattle so that’s never something I can count on. So I invested in an EZCube light tent along with a pair of low wattage photography lights. Just got the kit last week and wow .. what a difference.
I used to have trouble with flash glare and lots of problems with shadows and dark zones. This nice Cube style tent handles the light distribution and takes care of those issues. You just set your object in the middle, place lights on either side (outside the tent), focus and snap! It sets up very easily and it also folds down into an amazingly small flat package so that you can store it easily – an important feature for the home-based business with limited storage space.
Quality photos are perhaps the most important success ingredient of selling physical products on the web or on eBay. If you’re wanting better quality digital photos but don’t want to spend your children’s college fund on expensive lighting equipment, this makes an affordable, quality photo lighting solution for the home-based business.
