Good Product shots are important to conduct any business on an E-Commerce platform – whether it is Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra etc.. A good product picture makes the product stand out from others and makes it sell. Research shows that visually attractive product pictures get more consumer eyeballs and clicks during online shopping.
I was approached by the marketing team for an e-commerce shoot for the launch of a new line of Haier washing machines. This shoot was held at the Haier India Pune factory in Ranjangaon.
A few notable points of a product shoot such as this:

An e-commerce shoot requires pictures to be taken from all angles. These show up as different views for the consumer on the shopping site as they make a decision for which product to buy. The pictures are also used to depict the product dimensions and colors, and highlight the most important features of the product that make it worth a buy! Take a look at some of the shots:
