In the first part of our How To series, we demonstrated the OOWA 75mm Telephoto Lens’ capabilities in shooting sharp, high-quality portraits. This time, we’re going to explore how our lens allows you to capture not only professional-looking product photos, but also aesthetically-pleasing ones. Say goodbye to dead-on shots (unless you’re going for that look, of course). We’ll also look at photographing animals and, of course, food.
There’s no need to resort to digital zoom for that perfect photo. Or going so close your phone stops cooperating. With our Telephoto lens, maintain a comfortable distance without sacrificing image quality. Effortless shooting, eye-catching images. It’s pretty easy too.
Your product takes centre stage. Placement of the subject in the centre of the picture helps draw attention to it. It helps to get the subject to take up as much space as possible, or to create a shallow depth of field, as in this photo. Since our lens is small, the out-of-focus foreground and background helps draw our sightline towards what’s important. Using an outdoor background takes away the mundanity of traditional product photography and gives you a chance to place your product in a real-life context.
