The online marketplace is continually demanding innovation in the way products are being presented and is being led by the big brands and fashion houses who have the resources to continually create creative product photography ideas: resulting in extraordinary, gripping imagery. And if you are wondering about how to get funky shots, perfect for the home page banner and for attention grabbing marketing, then here are some tips you were looking for:
#1 Hanging Shots

Hanging products may not necessarily strike as an unusual practice itself, but can get really quite creative with it. Hang the product upside down, sideways or with an odd background. You can also suspend it from wires or ropes to make it look great on the photos. Remember that it is essential to take away many more photos and need with lots of variations. Because of these variations it may seem as brilliant in the real life.
#2 Play with the angles

Most of the times you can get a headshot or a simple bird-eye view which can make your product seem really interesting at flattering angles. Before shooting the photos you need to understand the product and take photos accordingly to make it look attractive.
#3 Creating Looks

Great products come with stylized looks and can control the colour match-ups and show how items go together. This is great for advertising, allowing you to show multiple products at once and create colourful eye-catching fun design useful on two fronts. Also, as a wholesaler it shows how the products could look together in the store to help promote multiple sales.
#4 Macro Photography

Macro shots generally focus on the details and can add an extra lustre to a product, but it needs to be kept in mind that most of the macro shots would probably need to be ones that are used in conjunction with normal product photos. They can also be a great asset to a series of photos. In order to be sure that your lighting is perfect, the tiniest details show up.
#5 Show the products in a weird use

Putting the product on the table in front could grab a pen and paper and then write down every possible way you could possibly use the product. Start with the more normal everyday uses and gradually let your mind approach the more surreal possibilities. Eventually, you would come up with something and think ‘there’s no possibility to do that’. That’s the time when you can finally get to do it with some digital editing/illustration before starting the shoot.
#6 Using Extreme Post-Production

While hiring a graphic design artist may require a bit of help, this could be an opportunity for some seriously original product photography. For such creative photographers the sky’s the limit.
#7 Using Reflective Surfaces

A reflection in the image can add large amounts of depth to an otherwise simple and static photo. It doesn’t mean just to place the product on a mirror. Try using photo manipulation to reflect the image onto water perhaps. Or place the product in a shallow pan of water and use lighting to enhance the reflection.
#8 Create Motion in the images

Get clever when you are adding the style quotient to the garments. Even if you are shooting them flat you can still infuse them with life and fun at the same time.
#9 Humanize the Product

Creating a story that surrounds it, giving it character. Use the props and making it unique by emphasizing the uniqueness with the imagery. Keep the ideas of your brand in mind as you are thinking about it.
