    Hello,

    I am making product image of a black object on white background. Either I am getting a beautiful seamless white background and the object is completely, overexposed, or I have a rich black color of the product and the background is absolutely grey and dull. Please help me find a way to combine black and white to get a beautiful picture. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi kiran. Welcome to TPF.



    Check out this tutorial from Zack Arias.

    He is obviously using human models, but the fundamentals are sound. Just scale it up or down for your needs.

    Welcome to the forum.

    The trick for getting a white background to photograph as white (without overexposing the whole shot) is that you need to put more light on the background without putting as much light onto the subject.
