How to take lifestyle photography to the …

I remember that moment when my parents gave me my first camera. I was 13 years old or something like that and really liked photography. Every little detail matters, so I’ve been experimenting with photography for hours: adjusting the lighting, using different backgrounds, etc. And 9 years later, I’m doing exactly what I love: making product photos for my clients. It’s such a fun thing to do, you can be creative and experiment with a lot of different things. I’m also doing streetstyle photoshoots for clients. But what’s the secret behind a good product photo?
