Creating a nice white background to shoot product images is not much expensive as you think. Keeping the product in focus is very important and this background plays a great role. A little bit of planning makes a huge difference in the quality of the images. So, I have presented here some tips to create a beautiful and plain white background.

The background must be such that flatters the product as well as the brand name. Also, the background should present your company in a better way whether it is for online catalogs, brochures or websites, etc.

Let’s take a look at how to use perfect solid white background:

Photography with White Paper Background:

Products look good when they are against a white background. It is because the product looks enhanced and more focused compared to colorful backgrounds. You can use a poster board or seamless white paper to create a nice Background. Other than that, white foam board also looks good but you have to be sure while placing the paper as curved background can cast shadows on the product.

Photography with Plain White Sheet Background:

Products that are large require a long white sheet beneath. A clean white sheet is swept under the product and attached with the help of tape so that it doesn’t fall down on the floor during the photography phase. If you don’t find white paper then you can choose a white sheet to make up for it.

Photography with White Wall Background:

As I already said, plain white backgrounds always flatter a product but you can also choose a light-colored wall. I suggest a white wall that has perfect lighting and is large enough so that the product doesn’t go out of focus. Whitewall or light-colored walls make the product stand out from the crowd because all the features and colors of the product get emphasized and enhanced.

The white product looks great against grey backdrops and the darker product goes well with plain white backgrounds. So the thumb rule here is to pick the contrasting backgrounds.

Happy photography!
