Tips on Photographing Used Kitchen EquipmentDecember 10, 2017
It would be a good guest that you’re reading this blog from a smartphone.
Make Sure It Turns On
If it turns on, make sure you can you show it working. For example, if it is a gas grill you will want to make sure you can snap a picture of the flames. Use angles to your advantage. Refrigerators and freezers might be a little bit harder. If there is a thermometer inside, that would be good information to show in the picture. This way it is proof that your used kitchen equipment is working, and not used kitchen junk.
Make it Squeaky Clean
Don’t make the mistake of posting a dirty picture. Giving your used kitchen equipment a nice buffer can make it a wow piece. You can use store bought cleaners to give it a quick wipe down, but did you know you can save a trip there? Using a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle, you have an all purpose cleaner. Try using this on stainless steel surfaces and countertops. Now that your used kitchen equipment is nice and shiny, go ahead and snap a picture of it.
It’s all About the Angles
Although this can be tricky, having good angles can make or break a picture. You can follow the rule of thirds, which is also a good tip for pictures in general. Imagine two vertical lines and two horizontal lines intersecting each other, much like a tic-tac-toe grid. Placing subjects where the lines meet can make a picture aesthetically pleasing. For example with a gas grill mentioned before. If the flames are visibly showing, a close up with the fire in section where the “grid” intersects will generally look better than if the flames were centered. Try it out yourself with objects around you.
Take notice of the background
Be mindful of what is the background of your picture. A dirty or unclean background can take away the focus of the picture. Aim for appropriate backgrounds, clean, or solid colors to compliment your used kitchen equipment.
