White background photography and lifestyle. Are they both important?

White background photography. We all need it.

The client is selling this product on Amazon US and Amazon Australia. It is a great product and I have used it on my last trip. Good size, soft fabric and light.

Amazon allows only a very limited number of photos, so the client decided to purchase one lifestyle photo and invest more on the photos with white background.

The photos with a white background or that have had their background removed, are great to show the product without any distraction. We use them to specify what is included in the purchase as in the case of the main photo (top of page) where it shows the bag, ear plugs and eye mask. It is also the best way to show the size of the product as you can see in this photo.

These two lifestyle photos were done inside a car showing the use of the product during car trips.

It was a cold and raining afternoon as it is typical of a Melbourne winter. We want to create an early afternoon scene and a night scene. I positioned the flashes in a way to create the lighting as if coming from the internal car light. To create the night effect I used the high speed on the camera and flashes to overpower the sun. We left the windows wet as it gave us nice reflections.
