Differentiating a professional Amazon photography studio to a freelance photographer

There are plenty of professional photography studios nowadays so choosing the right one for Amazon product shoot becomes more and more difficult as choices clouds judgment. Lets look at some things to consider when choosing the right studio.



Sufficient space:

Having enough space to place-out all the photography equipment and having set scenes for shooting is important. It also gives additional places for taking photos resulting easier lighting balance while shooting the products.


Backdrops and modified scenic theme space:

Making sure of using the correct backdrops to shoot the product is photography 101. A decent white backdrop is cheap around 20-30 dollars but setting up a themed scenic spot, is time consuming and costly. If lifestyle photos is a requirement, asking if the studio has scenic theme space is important.


Studio Lighting:

One of the key things to consider is the lighting condition of the studio. Is there sufficient natural light or it primary uses flashlights, effect lights, softbox diffuses, umbrella diffuses, using reflectors, continues lighting, etc. We don’t want to see shadows, blurs or uneven color tones with our photos, so the correct equipment to get the correct light balance is one of the fundamental to have great photos.


Furniture:

The word speaks for itself. Studios needs to have chairs, tables, props, gadgets, etc. The list goes on and on. I think you get the picture.


Camera, Lenses, Speed light flashes:

Using the most expensive cameras doesn’t necessary mean you will have the best photos. It’s the usage of the correct combination of camera, lenses and light flashes. A few things to consider is shutter speed, ISO, aperture, white balance, etc. Once again the combination of this goes on and on and shooting different products uses different setups. It is best to leave this to experts for them to provide sample photo of the product you want them to shoot.

You should always ask for sample photos before using a studio service. At TYI studio, we offer “shoot first, pay later” so you will only have to pay after you reviewed and satisfied with the photos.
