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 DSLR and the Canon fixed 50mm lens (set to aperture 16). We were able to get ample depth of field with no focus stacking required. The total process time was about 6 minutes. Process time included automated image capture (turn, stop, snap workflow), batch image editing (make changes to a single image then apply to all), processing (resizing, renaming etc.), then 360 view creation in Interactive HTML5 output. We used 1 white foamboard panel on top of the LumiPad Lighting Kit to help contain some of the light (eliminiate light leakage out of the top while ensuring for consistent exposure of product. We had used the small 360 Acrylic Riser used on top of the Silver MID series to help eliminate shadows – which resulted in high quality 360 product photography with a pure white background.
In the included Shutter Stream 360 Product Photography Software, we applied some editing changes in a batch process (edit one image then click apply to all). Edits included:
Levels: Minimal adjustments to black, white and midtones to slightly adjust colors and background
Sharpness: Added a value of 2 to sharpness to enhance image quality
