DOME FOR SMALL PRODUCTS
As we saw many times, the background is very important, as its function is not only to “fill” the picture but also to make the main subject more important.
The selection of the right background in product photography is a very important decision as it involves the way we want to show the product to the observer.
With the dome, we can use anything as a background. Nevertheless, to make the things easier for you I have already created some standard backgrounds to use with the dome.
I strongly recommend printing them out in A3 matte photographic paper.
You will find a standard white background, black, 50% grey and black to white degrade.
Also, a green Chroma key background that will help you to trim the object and insert it into the picture you want using a photo retouching software.
In addition, you will find nine creative backgrounds.
As before, the use of these backgrounds is simple.
Just put them on the table facing to you, add the item you want carefully on top of it, in the centre, and the dome on top of all.
