Product photos are a great way to sell your products. The problem is that many businesses take low-quality, unprofessional-looking product photos, and the results speak for themselves: low conversion rates and not enough revenue generated. Luckily, with today’s technology, there is no need to take high-quality professional product photos in order to make better marketing strategies. All you need is an iPhone or other smartphone camera!

In fact, the entire process of taking great pictures of anything can start by learning how to take them on an iPhone or Android phone! You just have some basic tips that will help deliver high-quality images no matter what type of handset is being used.

In this article, I want to take you through some tips on how to take product photos with iPhone. This is something that a lot of people have been asking me about recently, so I thought it would be worth writing an article on the subject. A good photo can go a long way in selling your products – but there are many things to consider when taking photos with your phone. Hopefully, after reading this post, you’ll be able to take better photos and sell more!

Take Product Photos with iPhone

1. Use a Room with Good Lighting

The first thing you’ll need for your photography is a room with good lighting. Natural light, especially when shooting product photos on an iPhone! Find out what type of window in the house provides this great source and try to shoot next to it whenever possible because that will bring softer shadows into focus – without any pesky shadings getting in their way. Putting products farther away from where there’s nothing but artificial sources like bulbs or fixtures gives them slightly sharper looks too thanks to the lack thereof throughout most frames; making everything easier on.


2. Choose Your Smartphone

Most smartphone cameras these days make great DSLR alternatives for product photography. A great phone for product photography is one that has a camera with the highest megapixel count. The higher your photos are, the better they will turn out! I recommend using phones made by Apple (like the iPhone) since their quality consistently ranks high on our list of best cameras to use when taking pictures of products in different lighting conditions or at various distances from an object. There’s no need to get complicated though – any new smartphone released within the last two years should have more than 12 megapixels worth its pixel size if you want top-notch results without having too much trouble getting all those pesky shadows under control!

3. Mini Tripod

Mini tripods are great for stabilizing your camera and getting the perfect angle. They’ll help you take photos that match the color palettes of all different products, without having to spend more money on expensive equipment! If mini-tripod isn’t quite right for what you need – don’t worry because we have something else too!


4. Use a Photo Lightbox

For better results, you should use a photo lightbox or a small light tent. These enclosed boxes featuring a white background with a bright setup inside are useful for making perfect product images for your online business. You can find them in different shapes and sizes, offering fantastic features.


5. Set up Your Background

For the best results, use a simple white or gray background. A sweep is perfect because it will fill in behind and underneath your product while reflecting light onto its surface at all times! If you want an even easier option without too much hassle then try looking for something like seamless paper which can usually be found at any photography store near where I live – they’re not expensive either; just make sure that whichever one(s) you choose covers more width than height so cropping isn’t necessary when posting images online (or printing).


6. Position Your Product

It’s important to make sure your product is clean and camera-ready. Here are some tips for minimizing shadows when displaying it on a stand or leaning against something: poke holes in the background paper with an eyelet setter, then use fishing wire {to hang from frame}.

If you’re shooting something like a hat or bag, stuff it with tissue paper or clothing to make it look full.


7. Get Your Smartphone Ready

If you want to get the best photos possible, keep your phone clean! We all know that phones are in constant contact with us and as a result, they collect dirt. If we have an iPhone case made out of metal or plastic there’s no need for flare because those materials don’t transmit light as glass does.
