What is eCommerce product photography and why do I need it?

Product photography is the process of capturing the appearance, essence and messages of a product. Every eCommerce store is available to customer 24/7. This is an amazing benefits from the widespread using of technology and mobile devices. However, one downside is that stores are now left without the ability to speak to customers. Sales representatives can no longer tell customers about the product on the shelf.

Instead, stores have to use images of products on white backgrounds and words (on their eCommerce sites) to capture the attention of web visitors. In addition, stores have to use images as tell their story. As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. This is even more so for your Shopify or DTC eCommerce store. Your product photographs have to capture the mission of your company as well as your product. Customers have to be convinced that they are getting what they want.

Our eCommerce photographers can travel anywhere in Singapore. Have your white background product photoshoot in our studio or in your shop. We have the best equipment and can set-up at your convenience. Taking product photoshoots is our passion and we aim to help you make your Singaporean business dream come true!

However, the lighting set up for different products would also require different moods. Its goal is to highlight a specific detail or part of the product being sold. It is also more preferred because the photographer has control over external factors.

These kinds of setups are free from any outside disturbances like bad weather and unwanted lightning. Being in control of these kinds of factors can help acquire the desired effect and image.

Why are white background images the most preferred backdrop?
