The selection of a good image shouldn’t be an onerous task, but there are some straightforward things that you should add to your process when you’re taking pictures for your shop/page or just your brand media.
Turn the bloody lights on
As the images below demonstrate, turning a light on can dramatically improve the quality of an image.
After you’ve taken your image, have a look at it and see if anything else attracts your attention and if it attracts your eye maybe you should retake the image with any distractions removed.
Create a standard template
Set your style and stick to it, this could be as simple as a sheet hung over a chair or as complex as a lightbox but whatever you choose to do try and retain that style for all your images.
One Final Thought
It may be a good idea to enlist the help of a harsh critic who won’t just tell you what they think you want to hear, especially if you’re selling physical products if you look at the three images above I had taken the image to do a post about how strong Skull Crusher Coffee was but if my post was trying to sell mugs the image of a dirty mug would not be a smart move.
