In the competitive field of e-commerce, putting up a stunning product photo is essential to get ahead of the pack. You’d want your product photo to be at its clearest, and also attention-grabbing enough to reel in cursory web-browsers.
Using a flash is a sure way to elevate product photos. Specifically with Sony’s HVL-F60RM, you’ll put your products in a better light with the flash’s unique Quick Shift Bounce feature. Tiltable from horizontal to vertical for fast flash position switches (90° left and right, 150° up/8° down), the flash head rotating feature allows you to bounce the light that fills in dark areas, takes control of shadows formed and determines the overall softness of the image.
Want to take things even further? Use multiple flashes for more lighting styles. Sony’s flashes have got you covered too, with the seamless radio trigger that links all flashes and your Alpha camera together. The flashes are also very adaptable, with customizable buttons that allow quick access to your frequently used functions.
