lighting equipment, props and photographic backdrop.
1. SilhouetteA silhouette shot of an instrument can make the photograph appear elegant and mysterious at the same time. To shoot a silhouette you will need to place the light directly behind the object. This will make the instrument appear black and the photo background a lighter color. You can also use this technique to shoot someone playing the instrument.
2. LightingNo matter what type of photography you are shooting, different lighting techniques will always make a photo look more interesting. Play around with the light position until you find the desired look and feel. One idea is to draw the viewer’s attention to a specific part of the instrument, i.e. the neck of a guitar. You can do this by shining the light directly over it and aiming it toward the neck.
3. Black and WhiteBlack and white photography is more dramatic than any other type. This technique can be used to shoot the instrument by itself or it being played.
4. Creative SettingsPlace the instrument in different settings. Be creative when selecting a setting. For example, take the instrument outdoors and prop it up against a tree, lay it on a child’s slide or beach chair in the sand. Or perhaps you may want to use a green screen backdrop to add in a wild background design.
