Whether you’re just starting to lay out your first stall or you’ve been setting up shop for years, here are some tips to help you make your products shine—using just the smartphone in your pocket.

Tip 1: Light It Up

Light is your best friend when it comes to photography, and natural light is the superstar. Try to set up your product near a natural light source or take your products outside. Morning or late afternoon? Perfect! That’s when the light is softer, just right for making products look their best. No harsh shadows, just beautiful, even light. An overcast day is often the best 😉

Tip 2: Clean and Tidy Wins the Race

Before you start snapping away, make sure your products look their best. A quick polish or a dust-off can make all the difference. Keep your background simple, let your product be the star of the show. A plain backdrop or a wooden table is a nice touch without distracting the eye.

Tip 3: Get Up Close and Personal

Your phone’s camera is good when it comes to details. Don’t be shy; get close to your products to show off the texture, colours, and details. This makes viewers feel like they can almost touch and feel your goods.

Tip 4: The Rule of Thirds: Your New Best Friend

Here’s a fun trick: imagine your screen is divided into nine equal parts by two horizontal and two vertical lines. Now, try placing your product along these lines or at the points where they meet. This isn’t just random; it’s a tried-and-true photography rule that really pleases the eye.

Tip 5: Snap from Different Angles

Don’t just stick to one angle. Play around! Try high shots, low shots, side shots—each angle tells a different story about your product. It’s like showing off all the good sides of your best friend.

Tip 6: Edit Like a Pro

Got a photo that’s almost perfect but needs a little tweak? Your phone probably has some built-in editing tools. Adjust the brightness, add a bit of contrast, and maybe a pinch of saturation to make those colours pop. Remember, a little goes a long way.
