360 Product View Example Notes
Shooting a 360 Product View of this Stone Tile Swatch was easy and efficient. We had photographed this using a low cost, entry level Canon DSLR and the Canon fixed 50 mm lens (set to aperture 16). The total process time was about 5 1/2 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 3 white foamboard panel (included with Medium & Large LumiPad 360 Lighting Kits) to contain the LumiPad Lighting Kit (to create a light box effect). This helped to eliminate light leakage while also ensuring for consistent exposure of the product as it rotated. 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 mid-tones to slightly adjust colors and background
Sharpness: Added a value of 2 to sharpness to enhance image quality
