Soap In the Box Vs Out of the Box


What a difference the right lighting makes! The above picture on the left was taken on my kitchen counter. The colors look washed out and dull. The pattern on the granite counter top competes with the swirls in the soap. Even with those factors, the picture, itself, looks fine until you compare it to the picture on the right which was taken in the SHOTBOX. The colors are much more vibrant! The black background is clean and a perfect contrast to the soap! The white part of the soap is bright and clean looking. The overall picture in the SHOTBOX is much more appealing than the one out of the box!

Here is another view of the same bars of soap. Again, the picture on the left was taken on my kitchen counter while the two on the right were taken in the SHOTBOX. Both pictures are brighter and better than the one on my counter top but the picture with the black background is better than the one with the white. So even when you take the same pictures inside the SHOTBOX, choosing the right background is important. The white background looked perfectly fine when I was setting up the shot but it didn't photograph nearly as well as the black one. So don't be afraid to change things up to get the best possible shot!
