Behind the Scenes – Product Shots

A couple months or so ago I wrote a post on how to take better product photos. I just thought I’d share a little behind the scene look at how I shoot still life/product photos on this telephone bench. This old bench is one of my favorite items to shoot on.

Sometimes, I’ll even drape fabric over it.

The most creative shots are often taken in unexpected places. What do you have on hand that you could use to make awesome product photos?
