Behind the scenes of our new cosmetic glitter business

Behind the scenes of our new cosmetic glitter business

It isn't easy to start a new business.  To keep costs low, we're in-source everything from product photography to packaging.  I think it's always interesting to see behind the scenes on how things are done.  I recently updated our product shots for all our cosmetic glitter containers and glitter packaging.  Here's some pix of photo studio for the latest product shots.

All our shots are done in-house and with the exception of adding watermarks and tweaking the clarity/color, everything is done in-camera.

Typically, a product shot is done against a white background, but since these poofer bottles are white and translucent, I decided to go with a green background for contrast.  The quarter used for size comparison, is simply glued to a spring clip to keep it upright.  I like using a sheet of glass to get that reflective look (no Photoshop trickery there!)

Setup (standard two-light configuration with diffusers):

Overall, I think the results came out quite nice.
