Taking Your Own Shots for your Artwork or Product

Many clients need artwork and the obvious place to look is a stock photo library such as shutterstock, corbis or istockphoto. Although those are good photo libraries and it will give you a professional look, too many people use this libraries and it almost looks too cookie cutter and perfect to be the real thing.I would suggest investing in a good DSLR camera and shooting your own shots to use for your website or product.  They may need some touch up work with Photoshop but it’s well worth it because it’s unique and no one else has the same images.  You also don’t have to go through the work of buying the photos and re-licensing them later on.
