Shopping for Photography Light Boxes and Portable Shooting Tables
Whether you're selling your products online or in magazines, portable shooting tables, photo boxes, and light kits allow for professional product photography. They help you achieve clear, glare-free photos that vividly show the features of a particular product. A tabletop photo studio is portable and lightweight for easy storage. It's also easy to set up and take down, allowing you to create your mini professional studio anywhere.
Why Use a Portable Shooting Table?
A portable shooting table, or photo table, is not only ideal for product photography but it can also work for macro photography. The shooting table helps eliminate shadows in the photos of your products. This makes it simple to cut out the subjects from the background. These tables come in various sizes to suit all product dimensions and designs. They're also foldable for easy packing and portability, making them popular with travel photographers.
Important Features of a Photography Light Box
Most shooting tents and table backgrounds are completely white to allow light to bounce off easily for better illumination of the product. However, you may want to consider using backgrounds with neutral colors such as gray and black for brightly colored products. A portable photo studio also comes with LED strip lights. This feature diffuses light to pull focus to your subject. The LED strip is concealed along the edges for a sleek look. LED tent lights also consume less energy and last longer, eliminating the need for frequent replacements. For even more cost-effectiveness, shop for light tents kits, which include tabletop studios, fluorescent or LED lights, and light sockets. You may also want to consider investing in accessories such as video camera boom poles, white bounce cards, light table stands, as well as copystands and copylights.
