"The rule of odds" Rule of Odds states that having an odd number of objects in an image will be more interesting and therefore pleasing. In case there is an even number of objects, your brain would have an easy time "organizing" the objects into pairs and therefore bringing in symmetry and dullness. If you have one main object, accompany it with two supporting objects, not one. This way, one of them will be a middle one.
"Play with angles"
As you take photos, go for unusual angles. We recommend playing around with getting close ups and look for unique points of view that tells a story. You never know what angle will end up revealing the most impressive or attractive tale, so test different options. Do keep in mind that you still want to accurately reflect your products size, shape and quality to ensure sales and customer satisfaction.

Nowadays everyone is taking photos on their phones and using various filters to appear more stylized. While this is fun when showing off a night out with friends, it is not great for product photography.
