Product Photos
 
Do you get the photos (of products) from the manufacturer? Or do you take them? If you take the photos, what camera/lens setup and "studio" layout do you use? Which one of you takes the photos?

Sorry, I'm a photography nut just like I am a tennis (gear) nut. :)

Almost all of our product images are taken in house. We have a dedicated team of photographers that shoot the products in studios. I'll try to get info on camera and setup.

Yes please tw tell us regulars how you make items look way better in pictures than in person. I'm not picky but I swear I order stuff based on the fact that tw pictures make it look awesome and when I get it I'm just meh to it

A DIY light box will work wonders ;)

I have a studio of sorts in the guest bedroom... Just seeing how TW does it compared to me. I'm guessing they use strobes and diffusers....

Just do what the food photographers do when they shoot a dish for a restaurant --- spray it with WD-40 to give it a lovely sheen.

I've tried the dw40 trick but there is a florist spray that I find to work better.

db10s,

We have a whole imaging department with 4 studios for imaging. Our photographers use Canon cameras 7d and 5d. They use a variety of lenses depending on the product/shot. For lighting, they use professional studio lights.

Cool! I've done lots of shooting with a 7d. I would guess they use L lenses.

Thanks!
