We recently had one of the sellers we work with send us some yummy chocolate. Unfortunately, it was not just a fun gift, it was for us to shoot (Of course we got to eat it after). While the product was in the queue I had to beat my employees off with a stick.
Here's how the shoot broke down: This particular seller is an Amazon seller so we had to shoot the typical main image photo on 255 white. This seller plans on having the main listing and some sub listings. The product will be offered as a single pack, as well as sold in a three pack and as a multi flavor pack.
To keep everything clean, we shot each product on white one time and used post production to create the multipack images. Sometimes we use this technique rather than actually grouping the items together and shooting them. In this case, many of the wrappers were not in great shape by the time the product got to us. I found the best of each product and shot them. Then we repaired the imperfections in post and create the packs.
This particular chocolate is both certified organic in the US and in Canada. I always offer clients that have organic products for us to add "stickers" to their photos so that their listing pops out a bit. With Amazon in particular this makes it so that it can NOT be the main image, but you can use a product photo or product image with writing in the additional photos. Amazon allows up to 9 additional photos. So, we usually recommend that if there is something standout to your product, you want to highlight that in the image.
