The most common background used for appliances product photography sessions is plain white. It is ideal for catalog photography. Any product will look advantageous on a white background. You can potentially use different backgrounds; however, it can be applied only in rare cases, and has to be discussed with the photographers, specializing in object photography. Potential background colors include light-gray, light-pink, light-blue, or milky. It is advised to avoid using dark backgrounds for the purposes of object photography.
Appliance product photography needs the photographer to choose the right angle during the session. You will need close-up shots. These kinds of photographs look best when shot slightly angled. This substantially increases the visual appeal of the product.
Making high-quality appliances product photography is impossible without good lighting. Natural sunlight hardly suffices for such sessions. You will need to use professional equipment designed to establish artificial lighting. Apart from the lighting source itself, the photographer has to use a battery, a softbox, a mounting device, and a flash controller.
Appliances are a type of product for which it is not enough to take a single photograph. It is advised to show the object photographed from all angles: from the front, from the back, from the side, from the top, from the bottom. The more photographs the better! It is also a good idea to show the serial number of the product, as well as its logo.
Although appliances product photography is a type of object photography, the product in question has its own particularities that have to be taken into account during the session:
Take pictures of the appliances closed as well as opened. For instance, a washing machine with an opened door looks better than the same washing machine with the door closed.
Use the 360-degree photography style. This allows a potential client to get 3D photographs of the product they are interested in.
The object photographed, no matter its shape, must not go beyond the frame.
Use a bright ruler on the photographs, if the product is of a small size, and you want to attract the client’s attention to the dimensions of the product.

Quality product photos can be done as tabletop shots. Overall, product photography involves any kind of product photo shot apart from clothing items, and oftentimes, it includes additional props in the shot instead of a simple background.
We can capture almost any product using our e-commerce photography equipment. However, our product photographer would need to use our Cyclorama Stage for oversized items such as couches or beds to provide our clients with high quality photos .
It depends on the type of product and your Style Guide. Generally, we recommend having 3-5 professional photography shoots per product and a short video (video content converts extremely well). Each image would showcase the product from a different angle, and our product photographers would change the background and add any props if needed. Then, we edit the raw images and send you the final versions of your high quality product photos and your product.
Look around, fashion photos are all around us - magazine covers, big boards, social media, blogs, online portals. It is safe to say that the fashion industry is built on quality beautiful photos.
Looking at a product from all angles is a major advantage of a physical store, because it's the best way to evaluate a potential purchase. So why not apply this powerful advantage to e-commerce?
