[02/20] Use a window with indirect sunlight
If you’re a firm believer in using natural light in your photos (and are patient enough to wait for the right time and day) try to photograph your products near a large window that faces away from the sun. Sunlight is too harsh and will give you very harsh shadows. In the shade the sunlight is bouncing from various directions and therefore you should get nice soft shadows. And the good news is, this works even better on cloudy weather!
Top tip: combine this with the last tip and you’re good to go!
