Recreating Product Photography

Last semester I redesigned the packaging for the Halo series for Xbox One. My original photos were not that great, so for this competition, I reshot the product using a lightbox that my wife and I built. The lightbox creates a seamless white background and eliminates harsh shadows from the product.The lightbox is made out of PVC pipe. I then clipped white poster paper to the back at the top and had it drape down towards the front of the table. Bending the poster paper removes the seam where the background meets the table. Our lightbox is very large so I had to use three pieces of poster paper. Then a white sheet is draped over the box to diffuse the light coming from the lamps, which are placed on each side, and from above.

Old Photos

These photographs were dimly lit and didn’t showcase the product as well as I would have liked.

New Photos

The new photos are much better lit and could be used in a catalog or on a website since the background fades seamlessly to pure white.
