The first step in taking a good quality photo is to properly set up your surroundings. Before starting out with your photo, you should have taken a few test shots to see where your camera’s exposure settings fall. If you have a digital camera, check the settings, and make a note of them as well.

After setting up your surroundings, you will want to have everything aligned. Any marks or scratches on your objects should be cleaned up before you start to take your photo. Now, put on your protective gear like a face mask and gloves. Don’t forget the protection hat or hood too.

Take the shot without the flash if you can. It is best to try to take your shot in a dimly lit area so that you don’t have to worry about other people’s lighting and the hot lights in the studio. This is what will affect the color of your photo. Not to mention, there is nothing worse than having too much lighting in a photo.

Your quality digital camera will give you the option of changing the aperture or the shutter speed. You can experiment with different settings until you get the look you want. I personally use a 30 seconds shutter speed to get my picture to be blurry.

Take your time. There is no sense rushing when trying to get a photo. Your photo needs to be taken at a slow enough shutter speed so that you can focus on your subject. This is the key to making a great photo.

As for the background, the closer you get to your subject, the less room you have for error. If you have an interesting photo to take, try moving the object around to see if it brings your photo closer. Keep testing until you get the effect you want.

Place your object in front of a window. It may not seem logical, but lighting the floor or a table can work. It is also a good idea to place an object in front of the camera so that it will be in view. With your camera positioned near the object, you can just make sure that your subject is properly lit.

Lighting is important to most photographers’ fancy light effects. The ambient that surrounds the objects you have taken should be well lit. Do not place your camera in front of the object unless you have to.

There are tons of interesting backgrounds, you can create using objects like flowers, flowers in various shapes, or simple cardboard cutouts. Just get creative and look around until you find something that works for you. A trash bag or a piece of cardboard would be perfect for this.

Take the time to really explore your options for photos. Find the perfect photo for your subject and experiment until you find that special shot you like.
