How to Start a Business with Footwear Photography

Online shopping has gained popularity in recent years and it is increasing day by day. A major difference between online shopping and traditional shopping is in the case of online shopping, it is not possible to touch the product physically. So there are only two options for customers to make the decision for purchasing that product- product descriptions and product images. For this reason, publishing multiple, high-quality images of each product is the main priority for e-commerce site owners. According to eBay, a clear and detailed product image can boost up it’s a sale by 2%. Amazon and eBay have features to upload 9-12 images of each product, some images are very much important.

For achieving this goal, e-commerce owners need expert product photographers and graphic designers who can shoot and edit product photos. So, let’s focus on our article headline. We are talking about product photography business. Our product focus is “footwear”.

So what do you think? Is it a cool idea to start a footwear photography business for helping e-commerce sites and bringing benefit for the both ends? Here we are going to give you some tips which will surely help you.

Never go for unnecessary gears and business purchases

On the internet, you will be flooded with tons of photography gear advertisements. It is very much obvious that you may be allured by those. Buying new gadgets and gears can be a great fun and many will advise you with the phrase “it will help your business”.

They may suggest that if you just had that better lens, you’d take better photos, and your business would be more successful. But it will be hazardous if you purchase gears and other photography equipment without a proper plan and money management.

Learn to shoot manually

When you seriously think about footwear photography, you must have to learn to shoot with your camera manual. Most of us feel it is much easier to capture the product images with the default settings of the camera. But this tendency will hinder you from bringing out the maximum result from your camera.So it is very much important to learn the footwear photography manually. As footwear’s are small products, you need to shoot it very precisely.

The real benefit of manual mode shooting is it will help you to learn what’s going on with your camera, and the light around you. As early as you learn it, soon you will get control over your camera and your shooting skill will improve. Manual mode will make your exposures consistent, which helps you save time with your editing.

Be a photographer and businessman

As your target is to create your own business based on footwear photography, you must have to develop a business sense with photography skill. Great business is solely interlinked with great photography.

When you get started with great photography skills, still the probability of being successful in photography business is 50-50. Let me explain why? When you have taken a decision to start a photography business, you must have to earn multi-tasking ability. You are a photographer/customer service expert/book keeper/marketing director/social media whiz/branding guy/website creation person/secretary/treasurer/CEO/CFO/ and pretty much any other title you can think of. That means you have to develop various skills. Skills are very much important.

Patience is important

This virtue is very much essential if you want to be successful a successful footwear photography business person. You have to utter this word constantly to remind yourself. You must have to remember that you won’t get success overnight.

patience-is-importantIt will take time to get good at photography, marketing customer service, management of business organization. Frankly speaking, it will take time to get good at many things to run a hugely successful photography business.

Create your own branding

Performing right promotional activities is the key point of photography business success. Through away your outdated print materials, brochures, packaging, and thousands of business cards to the trash bin. Because all these are totally useless, and a big waste of money and paper.

create-your-own-branding

When you think about footwear photography business branding, creating something personal, unique and consistent is very much important. It will help you stand out from other photographers and photography firm and differentiate you from others.

So should you avoid the printed products for promotion? No. But you must have to be very much careful. In most of the cases, a huge amount of brochures may be wasted or just cannot be used or reached proper destination. Try to find ways to print on demand or in a limited scale. Analyze your necessity and fix your target where or to whom you want to promote.

Influence people to stay with you

Good word of mouth referrals are the most powerful ways for photography business success. People trust the recommendation of a friend more than an ad in a magazine.

influence-people-to-stay-with-you

You need to influence people to get great testimonials from them by providing them quality service. Such recommendation is more valuable than ad promotions.

A Bulk Order Client? Learn about the Privileges waiting for you!

It is often seen that, in order to attract big and busy clients who work on a large scale, image editing service providers offer Bulk Image Editing Service. It’s a generic conception that bundle comes with discounts. A client with bulk order always enjoys some special privileges from image editing service providers. There are thousands of people around the world who solely depend on image related services for their living. They send photos for processing to image editing service providers. As the number of photos grow in numbers, the discount rate also increases. This is called the bulk order discount.

The competitive market always demands improvisation in business strategy. Business companies, today, are always coming with new exciting offers that compete with each other to attract clients. Clients also get the change to choose the best offer from all. Let us look at two aspects of Bulk Image order. Firstly we will look at what benefits clients are usually offered by the providers, and then, we will look at the process of a bulk order.

What Privileges Are You Offered for Your Bulk Order

What Privileges Are You Offered for Your Bulk Order?

The privileges vary in image editing service providers. Each company has a set of rules they follow. All their offers are made in accordance with those policies. However, there are some common features that are offered in almost all the bulk order offers.

Count Starts with 100

Count starts with 100

In most of the companies, the first step of discount starts from 100+ images per order. Generally, with each volume with 100 images, the discount rate increases. Some companies have other policies too. They decide the image range and separate volumes. For example, Volume A: 100-500 images, Volume B: 500-1000 images, Volume C: 1000-1500 images. Each volume offers a specific amount of discount to the clients.

Simple or Super Complex?

Since all images are not the same, companies have categorized image types in simple to super complex work. The categories vary in price. It is obvious that 100 simple images will offer a different amount of discount from 100 super complex image discount. After receiving all the images through a secure FTP server/Hightail/WeTransfer, designers sort out the images and categorize them based on their difficulty level. Then they send those images to the authority to calculate the quote and discount. If all the received images fall into the same category, or two or more categories, then authority quotes the price with the bulk order discount. Similarly, if the images don’t come under one category, then they make up an average ratio of these assorted images and quote the price with bulk discount.

Time Matters

Time Matters

Another important factor in Bulk Image Order processing is, the time limit. All the service providers have rush hour service, but mostly they are small orders. If such occurrence comes where Bulk Orders are asked to process within a short period of time, the negotiation will be different. There are many companies who don’t offer any bulk discount if it is a rush hour service. Even rush hour service requires extra charge depending on the hours or days. On the other hand, there are some companies who offer half of what they offer in regular bulk order. It completely depends on the company decision. There are also the factors like image types, image numbers and the deadline. All things have to be analyzed before providing a quote with bulk discount.

Welcome Back Clients

Companies never want to lose clients. There is hardly any company found who follow one time business policy. Every company wants their clients to come back every time they have new work. Same privilege goes for the bulk order too. The rush hour service, amount of the images, and types of the images, all these criteria come secondary for long term clients. The trust clients show to the company, returns to them when it is needed the most. So, returning clients always enjoy special privilege for the bulk order processing.

How Do They Do It

How Do They Do It?

As said earlier, the team leaders under the supervision of authority sort out the pictures and categorize them based on their complexity level. Once sorted out and sent with quote, the initial stage of Bulk order processing is done. Some companies have specially trained team for bulk order and rush hour processing. They are expert of doing a bulk order editing without causing any harm to the photo. Companies, who don’t have specialized teams for bulk order processing, can execute the order too. The only thing varies between them is time. Companies may process the bulk order at different times, since each company varies in manpower or experience.

          Once the order is confirmed, they start editing the images. The most important thing should be mentioned here is that in bulk order, it is important to remain the consistency of the photos in all the pictures. Without a proper synchronization, it is very hard to retain the aesthetics of the images.

          Once the bulk order is processed, they undergo steps of Quality Checking (QC). A QC is essential for each and every image before delivering to client finally. After all the formalities, the images are again transferred through the secured FTP/WeTransfer/Hightail server and handed over to the client.

Every company offers Bulk Order Discount for large order. Similarly, every client is free to pick a company or any bulk order offer as per their preference. It is recommended widely by expert graphic designers and clients that orders in bulk should be placed in a company which has more than 10 years of experience. Since, bulk order contains thousands of pictures, clients should look for experience service providers. There are two benefits of choosing an experienced company– firstly, they have a big team of expert graphic design professionals, and there is a great chance of getting more discount comparatively on bulk order. A similar kind of company, Clipping Path India (CPI), offers quite a moderate amount in comparison to other providers. Moreover, this company has been on this market for over 30 years and countless bulk order processing experience.

Tips and Tricks for Product Photography Using iPhone

Smartphones like iPhones and Android phones has already got so powerful and can produce the quality outputs for which you would need at least a digital camera few years back. Today we are going to discuss how we can use iPhone S4/S5/S6 or later for product photography also apply ghost mannequin photography. Well, a DSLR camera should be the perfect candidate for this. But if we do not have a DSLR camera available readily for our work, we can shoot with our smartphones confidently. IPhones or other smartphones has a plus point. We always carry it with us. These are easily portable devices.

Where Is This Kind of Product Photography Applicable?

IPhone product photography is good enough for e-commerce websites. Online product sale through the web stores are growing rapidly. As a result, a load of product images are required for online display of the products. Sometimes, you may not find a professional photographer for your product photography. In that situation, the iPhone in your pocket can come to save you. With the improvements of camera technology of the recent smartphones, it is possible to do product photography with your smartphone for virtually any media except for the too large pictures for banners and billboards.

Things You Need

  • An iPhone

You already got an iPhone or Android or other smartphone which has high quality camera. IPhone 4/S, 5S, 6S or higher will do excellent for your product photos.

  • Tripod for iPhone

You need to buy the tripod for your phone. Tripod will help to omit blurriness caused by the shake of your hands while shooting. Most of the high end phones have stabilizer facility. But tripod will make sure that you are taking unshaken, crisp, and clear pictures. Do some web search to select a tripod within your budget?

  • Backdrop

We will use a white background most of the time. Most of the products stand out on a light colored background like white or light grey. We can easily make the background with white seamless paper.

  • A table or high top furniture

To work with ease you can set all the setup on a table or a higher surface. Place the total setup near the door or window if you opt for the natural light source.

  • Lights

Lighting is a very crucial factor for any type of photography. It is the heart of photography. For lighting we have 3 options. One is to use the natural light source i.e. the sunlight. Place the product near the door or window. Morning and afternoon is the best time to utilize the sunlight. 2nd option is to use normal household lights like table lamps etc. in an innovative way. Like you can use some white cardboards to reflect the light toward the product or object. Same cardboards can be used to block the distracting lights coming toward the phone.  3rd option is to use photography studio lighting setup. Needless to say that natural lighting is free. Household lights are the cheapest. If you go for the photography studio lighting option, you will need some initial setup cost. Depending on your budget, choose a lighting setup. If you do some research on lighting for photography, you will be able to produce bright and shiny images with any kind of lighting setup I mentioned here. The best shortcut is to start shooting right now and analyze the outputs for different gear positioning and setup, and phone app setup. When you will get some experience with some experimentation, you will start to become a pro for photographing with smartphones.

  • Camera+ app

It will be better to download Camera+ app. It will give us more control over the way we like our products to be photographed. We will be able to easily set the photography variables like aperture, shutter speed and ISO manually. We can set the focus to any area of the composition by tapping on the phone screen. We will be able to shoot on the desired exposure to suit our need.

A lens for phone

If we are not tight in budget, we can buy a lens for the phone camera. This will provide us more freedom. We can place our camera (phone) to a suitable place and shoot utilizing the optical zoom of the lens. If our product is small like the jewelry etc. we can use a narrow angle lens, so that the product will not look distorted in the photo.

Setting up Everything

  • Set Your Phone To Airplane Mode

 This will help to avoid unwanted interruptions.

  • Auto-lock Feature Should Be Set To Never

 This will prevent the phone from going to standby mode.

  • Set Your Light Sources Appropriately

If you are not using natural light source, to get professional output with smooth shadows, you need to use two light sources. For a simple lighting setup, place the light sources at around 45 degree angle to the object. One at the left side, the other at the right side. Fill light should be a lower power light than the key light.

Now it’s Time to Shoot

Everything is set up now for starting to shoot. First take few sample shots to adjust the lighting and other setups. Fine tune the Camera+ app settings, also. If you are getting the pictures as per your expectation. Your settings are okay. So why wait… keep clicking… After shooting if you need some image editing or image manipulations, do it using Photoshop. If you cannot manage to find time for photo editing, you can take help from a reputed image manipulation service providing company. Experts of a good graphic design company can make your product image to shine on the website. An attractive image will increase the sell of your product.

The Hidden Secrets about Ghost Mannequin Photography for Apparel Business.

The apparel industry has gone from the offline market to the online market that is e-commerce. Many large online shops are now selling apparel products or giving opportunities to small and large companies to sell their garment products.

If you are a hardworking and optimistic e-commerce web store owner, then I want to give you some valuable tips which can help you to lift your apparel e-commerce business at a new height. If you get benefit from this feature, do not forget to give a thanks to this professional photographer and graphic designers; yes, that’s me!

Tips 1:Let’s begin our discussion. 

You must concentrate and give importance on the fact that your product must have to look good as much as possible. Why? Attractive garment photo can attract more customers. There is a basic problem arises when you go to shoot garments photo. Generally, when cloth samples are stored and transported, they become wrinkled, creased, and begin to look worn. The most critical part of apparel product photography is to prepare the garment item perfectly.

Many photographers depend on Adobe Photoshop to remove the unwanted wrinkle or stains from the clothes. But my suggestion is- “never do this”. Because Photoshop is not a magical thing which can give your apparel products an attractive look automatically. Years of expertise are needed to edit photos perfectly in Photoshop. Remember, excessive editing may hamper the quality of the image. From top to bottom, thoroughly examine your product. Remove unnecessary tags, stickers; repair damages and remove distractions. Try to capture the images as close as possible and use Photoshop only for the final touch.

Tips 2: Time to set up a photo studio

Almost any kind of room can be chosen for the photo studio. Collect camera, tripods, and white papers. A source of natural light is necessary during the preparation of your photo studio. For avoiding distraction and keeping the actual product color, you can use a white or light gray backdrop. Once the backdrop is ready, place your mannequin in the middle of the backdrop and in front of your camera. The camera is the most key part of a successful product photography. You may use a DSLR with minimum manual exposure and aperture settings. If it is expensive, you may use a smartphone too. Use a tripod for stabilization and a shake free photography. Place the product face to face position of tripod and camera. For different angles, move the products; not the tripod or camera.

Tip 3: Lighting

For apparel photography, natural window light source is the most inexpensive but high quality light source. Try to utilize the maximum of this natural light source. If the natural light source is not enough or you need some sorts of different lighting positions, you may collect lighting equipment’s. For a single light setup, you can collect light head, soft box, c-stand, battery pack, pocket wizard etc. However, now you have to determine the lighting position. If you are going to use the natural light source, position the mannequin near a window. Otherwise, you can use the light set up for your apparel photography.

Tip 4: Styling of mannequin

Generally, for apparel photography, models or mannequins are used to show the shape and fit of each garment item. However, for e-commerce website, it is not necessary to show them (mannequin) in every image. They can be removed by using Photoshop. But if you are an apparel e-commerce entrepreneur, you may not have enough time to edit all the garment images.

At first, you have to select a mannequin and fix a position for the final photo shoot. The first option is, you can also use a “ghost mannequin illusion” or graphically created mannequin by using Photoshop. The second option is, you can use a real mannequin to display your apparel products and after capturing images, you can remove the mannequin from the photo via Adobe Photoshop. Choose mannequin models according to your requirements.

You have done all the things perfectly, but your camera is in the wrong settings. All your efforts will be meaningless and bring no benefit. You must need to understand ISO, aperture, white balance settings of your camera before you start photographing. Set ISO limit at no greater than 600-640 because higher ISO causes gray spots or colored spots. It deteriorates the quality of images. For image sharpness, make sure that the ISO settings of your camera are properly adjusted.

Aperture, of camera settings (e.g. f/16, f/2.8), controls lens focus. The larger the aperture number, the more detail of the product in the image will be in full focus. A white balance of the camera should be adjusted to the nature of the light source or types.

Tip 6: A perfect photography

Now you are ready to proceed for your photo shoot. Allow the camera to focus your product and then take the shot. Take snaps as many as you can. The more you shot, the more detailed photos can be captured. Shot front and back, left to right up to down or from various angles.

The post production works are needed to give the ultimate professional look of apparel items. This includes various photo editing works before displaying the products on the website. For example- clipping path, background removal, neck joint of ghost mannequin, alignment and color correction.

Various statistics show that a clear and detailed photo of a product can boost up the sell in a tremendous way. So if you want the maximum financial benefit and create a brand value, you can follow these tips.

Have a good day!

eBay’s Image Guidelines for Store Owner

We all know the importance of photos. Images and pictures attract us. It can communicate with us. Because people say that a picture can tell thousands of words. I think it’s very true. So do not forget to upload a nice and attractive picture for your product listings on e-commerce sites like eBay or amazon.

While submitting product images to the eBay we have to comply with their guidelines regarding images. The first rule is that you must submit an image for a product listing. There may be the case where you are advertising for a service which is not possible to photograph directly. In this situation, you can upload a picture that is relevant to the service you provide. If you are a graphic design company, you can upload an image manipulation picture. You can search on the internet for free images and upload an image relating to your service.

A Picture is a Must for Listing

The first thing is that you got to supply a picture for your item listing. You can no longer list an item on eBay unless you provide at least one picture of the product. What if you are selling a product that is not something physical? A service like photo editing or travel packages? Yes, it’s simple, you have to upload a picture that is relevant to the subject. Providing a professional picture may require a professional photographer. A cheaper alternative is to search for relevant picture online. If you select a free image you are safe from the copyright issues.

Photo Size

For the longest side of the image, the length should be at least 500 pixels or higher. So use a moderately high megapixel camera; you are in safe zone. Even you can use reasonably high-end mobile phones to take the product photos. You can learn more about taking product pictures using smartphones “The Secrets of Capturing High-Quality Product Photos with Your Smartphones”.

Too high quality is also an issue. The maximum size of photo you can upload is 7 MB. Several photos of a listing can be added.

No Borders on The Photos

eBay does not allow borders on the photos. But what if your product is of square shaped or rectangular shaped item which naturally creates a border like visual on the image? No worries, it’s okay, this situation falls on their exception list. But you cannot deliberately create any border other than their exception policy for borders.

Policy for Watermark

 

For the ownership and attribution purpose watermarks are acceptable. It is not allowed for marketing information, any special description about your product, or information regarding customer service.

The watermark should not be bigger than 5% of the total image area.

It cannot have an opacity of more than 50%. It cannot make the product unclear. You cannot put links in watermarks. You can also use the eBay’s watermark creation service to create watermark for your photos.

Text Or Artwork Not Allowed On Photos

No marketing texts can be added to the photos of your item. Any information you need to add about the product, you should state those on the title, subtitle, or item description area. You cannot put any other texts mentioned above in the “watermark” section. The bottom line is other than watermark, there should be no other texts on the item photo. And watermark should comply with the watermark policy of eBay. Place all your marketing writing in Title and Description area.

Use of Stock Photos

If you intend to list a used item on eBay, you cannot use stock photos as the primary photo.  Same for the catalog images. You cannot use them as the primary photo of your product. For Books, Movies, Music and Video Game category, there are exceptions. You got to use a real picture of the used item, for used items.

Zoom / Enlarge Feature

There is a zoom / enlarge feature on the view item page. If your picture has enough resolution this feature will be available. eBay recommends that the items photos should be between 800 – 1600 pixels on the longest side. The longest side can be either height or width. For the images that has 800 pixels on the longest side, this feature will not be available.

So we know, images are extremely important for e-commerce websites like eBay. A buyer on a web store does not have the opportunity to touch and examine the product in real. A customer chooses a product by seeing the product image and the description provided. If you follow the guidelines of eBay regarding the photos of your item while listing them, you will be able to smoothly upload your product photo. Here I have described the basics you need to know regarding the item images for eBay.
