I took this one when the sun was going down, then tried to brighten it with Photoshop, but it isn't bright enough... The ones with shadows were too bad to keep..

I honestly think that trying to get a product shot on white is super hard. But you did good!

The shadows don't bother me in this picture and if there is any, they're hardly noticable. I just wish this picture was brighter because I took it outside when the sun was on the other side of the house...

What's a better background other than white? I see pictures online that are so good and bright and don't know how people take them successfully with an "ordinary" camera..

If that is what you're photographing, and not a person, i suggest making your own lightbox and putting it in direct sunlight..... i thought you were photographing a portrait, not a product. A light box would help you immensley, and you could make one for very cheap

What options do you have on your camera?

How would I go about making a lightbox and do I put it in the sunlight as well?

It's a very cheap, basic digital camera, so there aren't very many options... I was trying to find the macro setting today and couldn't even find that..

I did this in photoshop by using the polygonal lasso tool to cut out the elephant (copy and paste cut out to new layer) and then adjusting the brightness on the bottom layer to make background white and then slightly adjusting the brightness of the 'cut out' layer.

Not sure if that helps or not.

Thanks so much! That's VERY helpful! I'll have to try using those features on my next photos. My husband is extremely skilled at PhotoShop, but wants me to play around and learn everything myself instead of helping... He's great, but doesn't have patience with my bow stuff!
