The sales success of an online product is strongly dependent of the product picture that is associated with it. This product picture is often a deciding factor in choosing one product over the other.

In today's contest, we are going to assume you are going to sell a product on Amazon. An e-commerce website with tons of competition. You want the best picture possible to maximize the chances of a sale and stand out against all the noise.

Decide on an item you want to sell. This can be a single product, like an iPad, a bike, a piece of clothing,... Or, you can sell a group of items... For example a gift set or a collection of wines.

In product photography, the surface, the lighting and the background are important factors to consider. And, you don't always need fancy equipment! You can go for a plain background or a background that adds a story to your product. Make sure to read up on best practices first! To get you started, here are some interesting links:
