Step 1: Set Up Your Photography Studio!
The goal is set up the piece of paper so that it is curving upward to form a wall. This gets rid of ugly corners and makes everything look spotless! Rest the sheet of paper on something. Mine is resting on a drill battery charger and my laptop. Next place the lamp on the right corner of the sheet of paper.This casts cool shadows to the left of the object. Look at shots of Apple products on a white backdrop. They all have shadows on the left side!!
Step 2: Take Photos!!!!
When taking photos of your object make sure that you can only see the paper. You want the photo to be perfect. You can even do cool in hand shots. Check out the pics of my Arduino board in my hand. You can make some pretty cool pics with this simple backdrop. If you want to make your photos even better then you can photoshop to make the backdrop even whiter. Tell me if you use this method to improve your future instructables!!!!!
