Home Business Essential - Mini Studio
Oh this is pretty cool. I should make a series of home business essential entry to share my own experience running home base business. I’m in the opinion that home base business should not be treated as a third class business since more people are now switching to work at home rather than working at office 9 to 5. Don’t get me wrong, I am not against people who are working at the office, it just that if happens you got the time and opportunity to run your own business at home, I would say go ahead. Why not, aight?
So, doing 2 job in a time is never easy and if you are mother of 6 children (for example) things are tougher for you. Don’t ever wish for an angle or fairy god mother will fall from sky to assist you – because they don’t exist (but if they do, I want a fairy god mother too ehe), what you actually need is a guidance or tips on how to make it work conveniently and professionally, since you are doing 2 jobs in a time.
Previously I blog about Courier Bag where you can easily post your goods without a need to wrap your product especially things like scarf, clothes , supplement and etc. You can just put the item in the plastic, seal it and post it.Easy peasy.
The tent is quite big, I think manusia also can masuk and bergambar dalam ni ehe.
This time around, I wanna blog about my new helper aka my new mini studio made of a white cube/tent. I called it helper since it is indeed very helpful. All these while it took me about 10-15 minutes to set up my own “mini studio” which sometimes made me feel very detested and terribly lazy to shoot my products, and don’t make me start with the lighting. It was a very painful experience to get a good lighting or to get the lighting to co-operate with you. But whatever it is, you got to have a stunning photo for your products, because beautiful photos is vital in converting your website visitor to sales.
But now not anymore, I got a white cube tent which is super easy. I’ll just need to place my product inside this cute tent and snap the pic. Oh btw, you may need few source of light also to make sure the white background glowing and not dim/grey-ish. In my case, I prefer to use natural source of light provided by god – the sun. Hehe. Lucky, there’s an open area in my house, not really open like without roof….there’s a roof but it was made from a transparent plastic roofing so the sunlight can still penetrate through.
So, I shoot the product during day time and result as above. I bought the tent since a friend of mine wanna hire me to shoot her products, she got like more than 100 products to shoot. So, adalah pitam nak set mini studio manually and edit the picture because surely I need to edit the background to be as white as possible, nk buat sekali dua kali no sweatttt….but if nak edit sebanyak 100 kali? Pengsan mak ok.
As you know I don’t take any portraiture photography job, but for product shoot…yes, because it’s much simpler and the object is not a living a thing. Hehe. Price is RM6 per photo and RM1.50 for 1 DVD. Service that I provide;
1) Shooting2) Editing3) Watermarking (logo or watermark provided by customer in PSD/PNG format, I will just drag it onto the photo)
However, please be inform that I do this ONLY when I’m a little free yah. If I’m not free and busy with my biz, afraid I can’t shoot. Oh by the way, I bought the white cube tent at Digital Mall, Petaling Jaya. I believe you can get it from other camera & photography shop as well. Price is ranging from RM120-RM200 depending on size. Quite expensive, maybe other shop is cheaper, couldn’t’ be bother to check at other shop sbb malas and knowing me , semua benda nk cepat and tak boleh tunggu punya orang.
