Default indoor picture

I would like to take some pictures of my girls with my products but I'm not sure where to start. I do have a DSLR and want to take the shots indoor. Maybe with a black backdrop? Do I need lighting or can I put them by a window or door? Is there a certain shutter speed or aperture i should have my camera set on? What would you recommend? Thanks ladies!

Start by going to your local hardware store and get some white lightbulbs. Make sure they state that they are white lights. Then you can set up a fabric or sheet somewhere are start shooting.

Natural lighting is always the best. If you have to resort to lighting, I'd go with those natural light all spectrum bulbs. Flash is a last resort, and a diffuser is a must.

Holy canned meat, Batman!

Sorry OP. I'm a terrible photo-taker so I have nothing to offer

If I use natural lights, say through a window, so I shoot them while they face the window or do I face the window? Sorry so many questions. Theres a photo contest on base and I want to win so I can get the giftcard to upgrade my camera. Thanks

I do not know the slightest thing about cameras, my hubby bought a nice $$ fancy one and I am not allowed to play with it I LOVE some of the pictures he takes with it, but they never turn out so nice when I take them

I just use our "old" camera, which is still a good camera, just not as fancy, dosent have the different lens to change out and all that good stuff LOL

I sit my items by the window (or go outside if it is warm enough) when it is bright outside, not completely sunny, just bright. If it is really sunny my colors are always off, but if I get a good partially cloudy day where it is still bright, but the sun isnt directly on the product, oh those are the BEST pictures! (I can take myself anyway )

I put the item by the window and I try to take the picture from the window's perspective, if I hold the camera with the product between it and the window the pictures turn out a little darker and you see more shadows.
