Feb 17 · 3 min read

Watch the tutorial and learn how to shoot hanging objects.

Shooting hanging objects may seem more difficult than it really is. Here at Cappasity, we have prepared a set of foolproof instructions that will help you to shoot a hanging object in 3D with perfect results. Let’s dive right in.

Firstly, make sure that you have regular studio equipment: a 4K digital camera, a backdrop, and four 200W studio lights.

Set up a turning head with a holder.

To assemble the mechanism in the screenshot, you will need some easy-to-find elements: a time-lapse camera mount, a din rail, a 1/4 inch photo screw to connect them, and some metal paper clips to fix the hanging object in place.

Make sure that the holder is perfectly horizontal.

Use a spirit level gauge to make sure the balance is perfect.

Now, adjust the binder clips to the object size and place the object (in this video we are using a necklace) on the holder.

Set up the camera.

Switch on the turning head. Recommended speed — 30 seconds per turn.

Shoot the rotation of the product.

And finally, create a 3D View using Easy 3D Scan.

Embed the result into your online store, mobile app, and AR app to give your customers a fully immersive shopping experience.
