Shooting Simple Product Photos with Printer Paper and a Window

Indian photographer Kunal Daswani created this short and sweet beginner’s tutorial on how you can easily shoot a product photo using natural window light and a few sheets of white printer paper.

The basic idea is that you can made yourself a miniature seamless white backdrop by taping some white paper up on a board or vertical surface that’s next to a bright window.


To soften the lighting on the side opposite the window, use another piece of paper to bounce light back onto your product.


Using just his iPhone 6 Plus, Daswani shot this clean product photo of his Olympus mirrorless camera:


Voila! Simple product photography with stuff you have lying around at home.
