I decided to do a little ghetto set up to take photos of my shoes so I can sell them on Poshmark and Ebay. Let me say it took me a really long time to get it set up correctly, but it’s do-able for now. Kind of funny how everything looks super ghetto from my point of view, but the results look semi-decent. I used a light box (on the left) to brighten up the left side because the shadows were too harsh when the right flash triggered. I lacked another flash, so it was really hard to find some sort of middle ground. I tried using a bouncer as well, but it didn’t work as well as having a light box. Had to make do with what I had at home.
I was able to set up the auto-import to my MacBook Pro using Lightroom, so that was pretty cool. I’m using my 50mm lens with a focal reducer on my Sony Alpha.
Below you can see the results. I think I had edited the brown one and added a bit too much contrast.
Overall, I really like the way I did my little studio for my shoes. Will eventually find a better way of doing my studio. Didn’t realize that my photos are somewhat blurry too. Haha! Talk about fail, but at least they’re kind of decent.
