360 Parts Photography Notes

Shooting 360 Parts Photography of this Brass Part was simple and straight forward. We had photographed this using a low cost, entry level Canon Mirrorless camera (the EOS M50) and the Canon fixed 22mm lens (set to aperture 13). We were able to get ample depth of field with no focus stacking required (read more about product photography focus stacking). The total process time to complete the 360 parts photography was about 6 minutes. The process included placing and positioning the item (used the laser centering device included with the LumiCube 360), adjusting lighting (for correct colors). LumiCube 360 Light Box Lighting Settings:

Bottom Lighting: Full Intensity
Back Lighting: Full Intensity
Top Left Lighting: ~25% Intensity
Top Right Lighting: ~25% Intensity
Cold Lighting: Off
Neutral Lighting: Off
Warm Lighting: Off

After setting lighting, we optimized camera settings (for correct exposure), composed the image (applied pre-crop and set manual focal point) then entered the 360 image capture workflow by hitting start in the software. This automated the 360 photography workflow in a turn, stop, snap workflow. As images were captured, they were uploaded into the software where we then batch edited the entire image set to achieve pure white backgrounds (we made changes to a single image then applied to all). Our last step was image processing (resizing, renaming etc.), then 360 view creation (we output this in the interactive HTML5 option which include interactive click and drag and zoom from any angle).
