I usually prefer some sort of background/backdrop for photos that are modeled. It can be outdoor, indoor, whatever, even if it is a solid white backdrop I much prefer that over the photoshopped bg. When you remove the background I think it is too drastic and leaves the edges too sharp/crisp.

I do a mix. I try to have modeled product pic for each item and then the item by itself on a white background.

i like white crisp backgrounds for photos of just the product, IMO i think it really brings out the product and makes it "POP"

for models displaying product i prefer outdoors, or backdrop

HTH

Thanks for the input! I'm so torn!!!!

I like how professional a photoshopped white bg looks.
I think a fabric backdrop behind a product makes it look to "I did my own photography and this is the best I could come up with." lol

But I still want it to feel "home made" IDK!!!!

I agree with the ones above that said outside or backdrop for modeled shots, but a white background for showing just the product.

I will say though, I don't like the white photoshopped. I much prefer when the product's picture is taken in a lightbox.

I like product pics on white backgrounds in natural light - but not photoshopped white backgrounds.

I like modeled pics with a natural background - love outdoor shots with bokeh so the model is the focal point.

I agree. I honestly think the photoshopped white background just looks really edited & stark.

You'll never be able to please everyone, just go with what YOU think looks best & represents your business the way you'd like!
