Taking pics for a website using a digital cam Bubzeebub What's the best way to take pics for images for a website? What lighting/background is best? Any other suggestions?
I use a light tan background material and wait for a nice sunny day. Pictures are taken indoors, but the natural light produces better effects that artificial light, for me. Abdelrhman Fahmy
As Pc monitors sync at high refresh rates. You should Use a shutter speed slower than 1/30 to extend over a few frames. Also use a macro lens or the Macro mode if you're using a compact digital camera.
You’ll find some nice tutorial if you searched for (photographing pc monitor)
too much information
I don't think bubzeebub is trying to take pics OF a website, but those are some pretty good tips for future reference. ;o)
I think the natural lighting is a good suggestion. You should also take the photos into Photoshop and bump up your color saturation about 5% it makes the image more eye-catching.
You can also use Photoshop to gausian blur around your item so that the focus is sharp on the object and less sharp everywhere else, it's a pretty good effect.
I usually use white for a background, or some sort of outdoors scene that I can blur.
