Iconasys Shoe Photography LED Studio (25 x 25 x 25″)
Finding the correct lighting for shoe photography can be quite difficult – for any skill level photographer. Iconasys set out to design and manufacture a lighting set up that would yield great results for shoe photography every time. The studio includes a bottom and back-lit LED L shape panel that uses daylight balanced, high CRI bulbs to ensure for maximum color accuracy. The bottom and back-lit panel provides a very even and soft exposure that eliminates shadows and outputs a very consistent background close to pure white. It also sports a top down daylight balanced, diffused soft box that provides even lighting and soft exposure for the top of objects. Users can also use a reflective acrylic sheet (optional) in the front to bounce back lighting onto the front of the object – however, is not required.
When the Iconasys Shoe Photography LED Studio is used with the Shutter Stream Software, users are guaranteed pure white backgrounds through the use of the Automated Background Removal Tool (which can be applied in a batch process). Expect professional grade shoe images, ready for your web and/or catalog applications in seconds using this combination. Request additional info here.

Iconasys 360 Photography Turntable Options:
The Iconasys 18″ Manual 360 Shoe Photography Turntable is a great option for those looking to create 360 Shoe Photography on a budget. The turntable has 72 laser cut engravings around the outside allowing users to effectively adjust shooting angles consistently. It is ideal for shooting 8, 12, 18, 24, 36 or 72 frames over a 360 rotation. When used with Shutter Stream 360, users will use the manual turntable capture mode and define XX number of frames to capture. The image capture workflow can be manual (mouse click the snap button after the turntable is positioned to each angle) or completely automated using the image capture timer (ex. capture an image every 6 seconds). In the later example, users simply adjust the turntable after the camera captures an image until the 360 rotation is complete – allowing for automated capture. As images are captured, they are uploaded into the application where users can batch edit, process and output the set of frames and/or create an interactive 360 product view in HTML 5format.

Iconasys USB Turntables work directly with Shutter Stream 360 Photography Software to provide an integrated 360 photography workflow. Users simply connect the turntable to the computer via USB and the Shutter Stream 360 software will control the rest. Users can define the number of frames to capture (up to 72/360 rotation) and after hitting start, the software automates image capture by syncing camera snap with turntable movement in a turn, stop, snap workflow. As images are captured, they are uploaded into the software where users can take advantage of the batch image editing and processing tools to create web ready results. Output can be individual frames and/or an interactive 360 product view in HTML5 format. For those with high volume 360 photography requirements, the Iconasys USB turntable is likely the best option. Iconasys USB Turntables are available in 3 sizes – 2 of which are ideal for 360 shoe photography. Watch 360 Shoe Photography Workflow using the Iconasys USB Turntable
