    Looks eerilly similar to the photo on this page...

    By the way...my backpack straps also stay like that unless you push them down and lean them against something or lay it down. They are just naturally semi rigid.

    If you need to, you can use strings, wires, etc. by just painting them bright neon green and using chroma key techniques to remove what you don't want.

    You don't even need to chromakey it. Removing support wires in Ps is pretty quick and straight forward.

    True, but less fun. :) Plus you get to learn something for your film making.

    It looks similar, or identical because I got it from that page... I was trying to show an example of what kind of photo I wanted to take.

    This is the backpack I am trying to photograph but as you can see the shoulder straps just hang down

    Really? So you just take other photographers work when the mood strikes you? I've removed two images that you've "got" without apparently bothering to ask for rights/permission. If you want to post a link to the image/page, that's fine, but embedding images is a direct violation of TPF TOS.

    Sorry im new to this forum and i thought i was uploading the link because i put the url of the pic when adding it. I guess i need to put a physical link. Didnt realize that. And i never claimed any pics to be mine because they arent. Was just trying to show examples of what i was looking for. I give full credit to the photos that are not mine. If you wanted to look them up im sure u can by right clicking and properties and the url of the image is there.

    Also i have about a hundred different types of backpacks i need to photograph. I don't think adding an internal wire for all the styles is an efficient way. I'm sure there is a very effective way that professional product photographers use to take backpack photos. I am new to photography/product photography. What is the secret to the suspended straps? When i google a lot of backpacks are photographed in that way. How do they do it?

    They use any one of the methods described here. I personally didn't think you were stealing any photos, just thought you might not have noticed the moderator removed the first image and mentioned the rules pertaining to this forum so I called attention to it for you.
