Here at Cappasity we have prepared a set of foolproof instructions that will help you avoid the common mistakes made when shooting white objects on a white background. Let’s dive right in.

Firstly, make sure that you have the necessary equipment: four studio lights (at least 120W), a softbox, a 4K digital camera, a turntable, a semitransparent backdrop, and flags for lighting correction.

Now let’s compare shooting white and colored objects.

As you can see, with a regular lighting setup the white object merges with the background.

To correct this, adjust the exposure to make the background evenly white and reduce the lighting capacity in order to separate the object from the background. Make sure to decrease over-exposed areas. Use flags to help reduce flares and define edges. Now, you will have fewer unnecessary reflections and more clear edges.

Now we can shoot white objects on a white background as easily as colored ones!
