Introduction: Take Better Pictures of Objects Using Household Cameras
Sometimes while making projects or selling items, a good picture can make all the difference. In this instructable, I'll show some techniques that require not so expensive resources for pictures and also how to take macros of small objects.
Step 1: Materials
A white background
Photo Editing App like Snapseed
The GIMP (PC)
Step 2: The Setup
Setup the white background and put the subject on the white surface.
If the shadows appear,switch on the light array.
Step 3: Editing the Picture: on the Phone
There are many apps out there but Snapseed is a good free alternative for editing pictures.
Go to Add Effect > Tune Image
Press the magic wand and it will fix the contrast, brightness, etc.
Step 4: Editing the Picture: on the Phone (2)
Step 5: Editing on the Computer
Step 6: Bonus: Using Macro Lens
Macro lenses are available as clip-on lenses in the market.They have no manual focus so you'll have to get close to the subject to capture the picture.
