Are you a product photographer? But don't know why lighting is important in product photography? Read on to know why lighting is everything in product photography. Lightings are one of the most essential factors in creating and capturing the perfect product picture. It not only helps you determine brightness and darkness but it also determines the tone, mood, and atmosphere of the product picture. Hence, it is very necessary to add appropriate lighting during your product photography for the right texture and to bring out the right feature of the product.


Let's look at some of the reasons why lighting is important in product photography.


The Impact of Lighting on Product

The Impact of Lighting on Product

Lighting has an essential impact when it comes to product photography. If there is the slightest disturbance in the lighting, the whole picture might get ruined. Even your audience can identify if the picture has been taken with or without lights. A picture without the proper lighting will lack the entire purpose of the picture. A product picture should convey the message that the brand is trying to convey. An unclear picture without proper lighting would not bring the best out of that product.

Lighting Highlights the Details

As a product photographer, your job solely doesn't depend on photographing the product but you also need to capture the tiniest details of that product. Have you ever noticed a difference between the pictures that you saw on an e-commerce site? Were you disappointed by the end product that got delivered to you? You don't want to disappoint your customers with your product pictures so make sure you add relevant lighting.

Improves the Quality

Product Photographers often forget to clear the background while capturing a product picture which degrades the quality of the picture. This creates a negative impact on you as a photographer as your audience will start assuming that you are not a good photographer. But lighting can tone down the background as the camera will only focus on the product rather than the background. So even if you ever forget to clear your background, lighting will save you.

Lightings Add Mood to the Pictures

Lightings can be positioned in different ways and can be added in several colors according to the type of product you are photographing. If you are capturing a fun product, add the lights right in front of the product. Whereas if you are trying to add a sad mood to the picture, then you can place the lights behind the picture to create a suspicious and sad mood. A professional product photographer knows exactly how to place the lights in their product to capture the perfect features of the product.

Marketing Gets Easier


Compelling pictures attract the right customers. Lightings make it much easier for you to market yourself as the picture that you photograph is pleasing to the eyes of your customers. A good picture with perfect lighting will help you attract more leads as when you post it on your socials, your customers will get attracted.
