Five Tips To Create Killer Social Media Product Photography

1. Play With Lighting

Natural light is your BFF when it comes to product photography. It’s like a magic potion that can transform your products into Instagram-worthy stars. Don’t hide in the shadows or rely on artificial light to do the trick. Take advantage of the daytime and find a well-lit area to showcase your products. If you’re indoors, don’t be afraid to get close to that window and let the sunshine in. The more natural light, the better!

2. Don't Be Boring

Who says you have to stick to boring backgrounds? Plain backdrops might work for your shop catalogue but not when it comes to social media photography. Throw in some props and textures to spice things up. Break free from the traditional product photography mould and highlight your product’s personality! Dare to be different and showcase what makes your brand stand out.

3. Get Up Close & Personal

Don’t be afraid to get up close and personal with those products. Take some close-up shots of the intricate details of that jewelry you’re selling or the unique cut and pattern of that dress.

You want your customers to see what sets your products apart from the rest. Showcasing those unique features is the key to making your products stand out from the crowd. Give your customers a reason to swoon over your products and see the value in what you’re offering. It’s time to rock those features and show the world what you’ve got!

4. get experimental

Don’t be afraid to switch things up and try out new angles to show off those unique features. Get down low, shoot from above, or find a creative perspective to make your product pop. Your followers will be blown away by your innovative eye for detail.

But wait, there’s more! Why settle for just one composition when you can have it all? Experiment with different styles, like flat lays or overhead shots, to create visual interest and stand out from the crowd. Don’t be afraid to push boundaries and let your creativity run wild.

5. Edit, Edit, Edit

Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle, not even the editing software. Experiment with the brightness, contrast, and saturation of your photos to create a visually stunning look and feel for your brand. You don’t need to be a professional editor to make your photos look like they belong in Vogue.


In conclusion, forget the cookie-cutter product photography rules and embrace your rebellious side. Showcase your products like a badass and stand out from the crowd. Experiment with lighting, angles, and backgrounds, and edit your photos to create a consistent look and feel for your brand. Let your personality shine through and don’t be afraid to break the rules!
