The StyleShoots system in use
StyleShoots consists of a large glass light table, overhead daylight simulation lamps, an integrated Mac mini, an iPad and a Canon 5D Mark II camera
Although it appears that StyleShots would be best suited to relatively flat item such as garments, a company representative tells us that it can be used for photographing anything that can fit on the table, “even a person”
When incorporating photographs of products into catalogs or websites, it’s always helpful if those photos have a digitally-transparent background. This means that a computer working with the photo will allow the user to add in whatever background they wish behind the product – or give it no background at all – instead of being stuck with the background against which it was originally shot. In the past, creating such an image has often required graphic artists to manually cut the product out of the shot, using a program such as Photoshop. Now, however, the StyleShoots system is able to create product shots with transparent backgrounds within seconds, as the photos are being taken.
