Welcome once again to my blog
Today we are going to discuss that DIY or Outsourcing, which method is proven to be the best for product photography? Let me share something, we all have a little photographer hidden inside us. Remember that time when someone asks us to take their picture and we try to suggest them different poses and start taking different angles to capture the best picture. That is the first time when that photographer tries to surface. Well but, commercial photography and time pass photography are two hugely different things.
Both DIY and Outsourcing offer different kinds of pros and cons for the users. Before you go further and take a decision, it is always better to get some piece of advice from the wise.
Price– Well, I guess this is the basic concern of every e-commerce business owner. Since you are already spending so much money on other things, it is always troubling to manage extra money for other services. Also, let’s just not get started on the fees charged by the professional photographers. It’s really excruciating to pay their hefty fees. If we think on the price side, no e-commerce business owner will be willing to hire a professional for the task.
Expertise– Well, you surely lack the expertise plus you also don’t have enough time to bring new ideas in making your pictures alive. It is a hell lot of work to be done and you don’t have time to study stuff and then add newer ideas in your marketing as well as in your pictures. If you have learned the art of photography and you possess the expertise then go right ahead. But if not then outsourcing is the only channel left for you.
Photographers not only book your merchandise, take it to their studio and click the pictures but they also take full responsibility of making necessary edits and getting your pictures ready for online tests.
Equipment and Tools– Be it the outsourcing or DIY that you choose, it is imperative to first have the knowledge of the equipment and tools that will be used for photographing the products. You can learn it from the internet but since you don’t have the technical idea of the kind of equipment to be used, it will be a problem making for you to experiment stuff. The equipment and tools are extremely expensive and consume a hefty sum of money. You surely don’t want to waste your hard earned money on something that you don’t even know about.
On the other end, a professional will have all kinds of tools and equipment. Moreover, they will have their own photography studio where they can get done with the job seamlessly. Instead of buying the equipment, it is suggested to outsource. But then again, if you know how to shoot the products and all you need is the tools then go right ahead and make the purchase.
Satisfaction– Well, I like to connect professionally with personal so I would like to raise this point. If you are only trying to save some bucks then trust me, you will regret in future. Unless you don’t have the art of photography, you will never be satisfied with the end product. I have repeatedly said this that product images are crucial for the business. You can satisfy yourself with countless reasons but it is imperative to double check what you are posting online. So guys, try to see the bright side of outsourcing and if you are not so good with the art of photography, always be prepared to shed some money from your pocket and associate with a professional.
