Preparing your product for photography
To ensure your product gets represented properly and to its best ability I have created a guide to help you prepare your product for the photo shoot. Please take the time to make yourself acquainted with these guidelines in order to make the process productive and minimize problems.
360° Product Rotations
The ability to view a product in 360° gives the consumer that feeling of handling a product, increasing turnover rates.
A 360° product spin consists of 16 images, photographed separately, and presented to the client in sequence, the most common rotation is along the Y axis. Because they are individual images some special effects can be incorporated into the spin such as; product opening and closing, switching from one axis rotation to a second and others.
Some products can benefit from alternate rotations, such as along the X axis, which rotates the image front to back rather than side to side. Since these rotations are created from multiple individual images, you can customize the rotations for a unique view of your product.
Combine this with a few select static "features" images and you can give your customers an unparalleled experience.
A personalized experience
The image set shown here is a typical series of images need to create the spinning effect. The minimum number of images per rotation I provide is 16. Higher counts can be created at an additional fee. Combining two different axis rotations will be considered as two separate rotations even if they'll be combined into one for the final product.
I will work with you, your website manager or art department to ensure all products photographed in 360° will be delivered ready to implement seamlessly into your website.
† Please note that a 360° view of your product requires specialized back end software to display your product in an interactive environment for your customers. There are too many available to list them all. Check with your website manager to ensure this service gets properly implemented into your e-commerce enabled site.
