I've been asked by my significant other to photograph some of her knitting projects. One of which is a childs backpack which she will be giving away as a gift next week.
Honestly... I'm at a complete loss as to how to do this. My mind is a complete blank when it comes to photographing products.
The backpack is rather flat, and I don't have any children to photograph it with. I thought about just putting it down on a background and taking photos. I have all the gear and off camera flashes to light it up as needed... but I think it feels rather flat and uninspiring.
I want to be able to make this pop and show off the knitting that my GF has worked hard on, but I've never done any product photography and really don't have a clue. I've searched the web and haven't found any decent shots to copy the scenes of.
I also have to work within the constraints of my small apartment or bring it outside to photograph.
I was wondering if any of you guys have any ideas to push me in the right direction. I just have to be able to visualize something to try to make it happen, but I'm having a hard time even visualizing anything that looks decent.
Any ideas appreciated!!! thanks a lot and sorry if this is posted in the wrong section... I'm not sure where to ask this question.
