The videos were done and then it was time to do the 360° photos. Snap some photos on a white background and edit. Simple enough, right??? Yeah… to make the photos, I ended up taking a picture every 15° making a full rotation. Repeat for each of the three views. This was my first time doing this, so I made several experiments and finally found a setup that worked well in the Sync.Space studio
and then it was time to edit EACH photo and pretty much cut out the white background from the grill and placed it on a solid white layer. That was VERY time consuming, so with the assistance of one of my DistriFile
customers, “Nodsi” who is a photo editor
, we knocked these out. The end result is pretty slick! Simply move your mouse/swipe left and right to watch it spin!
Now, I will say that the 360° product photography was much more than I anticipated. Let me just say that they ended up getting a HUGE deal on this project all together. Its not something I want to get into, but having done it. I can. If the price is right 😉
