Assignment Overview

Have good lighting and a good composition for both the photos with a neutral background and those in an environment. For the environment photos, think about what is in the background, it should be intentional and not be cluttered. The environment photo should show how the object might be used. It should tell a story. Make sure Edit your photos in PhotoShop / Camera Raw for the best results.

Use think[box] Photo Stand or Classroom Photo Backdrop

There is a photo stand at the think[box]that is perfect for documenting small objects. You can take your laser cut project to the think[box] and use the soft boxes and flashes already set up. Follow the instructionsexternal link provided by the think[box]. Do not use your cell phone with this setup.

Document Your Project in the Environment

In addition to the photos with a photo backdrop or at the think[box] take a minimum of 2 photos of the laser cut in use in the environment. This will tell a story about the object and offer the viewer different insights into the design over the more sterile neutral background.
