I love clever gadgets. I love them even more if they make my creative life easier and have the potential to improve my product photography!
I stumbled upon the innovative device I’m about to tell you while researching the potential of using my iPhone for product photography and came across this eye-opening article.
With a bit of practice and in less than a day, I went from being a light tent and point and shoot camera user, to a light tent and iPhone plus Camera+ app using convert (seriously, the app and tips are that good!).
The other thing that caught my eye in the article was the Modahaus Steady Stand – a simple device for keeping your phone (or camera) steady while you snap away and also providing diffused light to keep the light reflections at bay. Yup – need one of those, I thought! And while I’m at it, I’ll grab a Table Top Studio and take advantage of the ‘bundle’ discount pricing :).
Because jewellery is small and compact in general, I got the smallest size.
Now I’m not a patient girl, 3 weeks is a long time for me to wait for anything to matter where in the world it’s coming from (Scotland btw). But let me tell you, it was SO worth the wait, and I’m not sure what I love the most – the portability, the functionality or the versatility!
Well I wont go into the product features etc because you can read all about it at the site if you’re interested and I’ll just let let the pictures do the talking from here …
