Get a flash and blow out the background and you don't get any wrinkles or lines using the other material.

Thanks for the tip!

Looks great Steve. I had just ordered 2 weeks ago a subtle white brick -look background and a upper torso manequin. The day it arrived I heard a few of our regular youtubers talk about some info they brought home from Vegas, one being the white background being preferred. Mine isn't seamless white like yours, but it is very subtle, so I'm hoping that will be okay. I just recently moved and once I have this place all settled I plan on starting up with ebay, poshmark, amazon, (one thing at a time), at a heavy pace. For months I've been buying my supplies, stuff to set up my office and photo studio, (got my photo cube for smaller things just about a week before you put out a video that you got one!). I've also been picking up inventory everywhere and will continue to do that because I don't want to be doing a lot of driving around in bad weather in the winter. Years ago I sold on ebay-mostly stuff around the house and clothing, but not really as a business. I've really been educating myself for a long time to prepare for what I'm about to do-probably starting end of Oct. I'd guess. Another great video-thanks! ;-)

At 0:36 don't you have the umbrellas backwards. I'm pretty sure the open end is is supposed to be facing your product... I could be wrong but that's how I've always seen it

I really need help. I have been reselling for about a month. I have a sheet behind some softbox lighting and a female mannequin. I NEED a male mannequin and want to spend about $70. I want it to be able to fit most clothing. Thinking maybe a medium - large. Can somebody please help? I would rather not have a hanging mannequin.
Agent Cobalt (1 year ago)
Which is better : umbrella or softbox ?

sheila broderick (2 years ago)
Great advise. Question regarding camera settings. I understand the camera on manual mode and the shutter speed needs to be set low probably between 15th - 100th of a second since I use a tripod. I will have to get my manual out to figure out how to do this. Someone had also suggested setting the white balance to on and changing the aperture speed, did you do this? If yes, to what settings?
Reed Sawyer (2 years ago)
Great ideas, Raiken.
omar verdugo (2 years ago)
Hi Raiken, Can you tell me how many watts your bulbs have?
david T. Daniels (2 years ago)
There are a few suggestions for earn cash with your camera Use you social media accounts for promotion Get your own blog Join a suitable course or site for marketing photos (I discovered these and why they work from Hartlyn Photo Pro website )

Why does it have to be that wide? I don't know anything about photography, but it seems like it doesn't have to be more than 3-4 feet wide.
Seether1742 (2 years ago)
well when you take pictures from a angle that's only a few inches away it makes a huge difference
rahul gupta (2 years ago)
+mjt532 helps while cropping and to give a seamless finish to the background

James Newcomb (3 years ago)
could you just paint a wall white? and if so would you use hi gloss or flat, maybe semi gloss? thanks for the video.
Stephanie (3 years ago)

U didnt mention what kind of camera u use and do u need to use screws to put the back drop together?  Is it simple to assemble, or is it just a screw on device??
Victoria Magrum (4 years ago)
Hi Steve, I really appreciated your video. Where can I find the links to buy the Seamless paper background, metal bars and your AMAZING light set up??? I don't know if i'll get it all but your setup is Fabulous!! Also...I have a Cannon Rebel t3i, what settings would you recommend.  P.S. that's NOT me in this picture. One of my models i used to use. I've since gone to a full size (female) mannequin.

what type of light bulb should I look for at home depot?
DJMV (4 years ago)
I haven't used my account to sell anything for some time but recently decided to sell a few things. I sold one item for $65 and Ebay takes out $6.50? and then paypal takes out another like $3? Those fees seem really high! Is this what they commonly do now? I don't remember it being 10%+ in fees! ouch
RJE95 (4 years ago)
Yep, those are the fees I've heard of

I loved your paper back setup over cloth, I work for SouthSurplus.com (Clothing Wholesaler). They are currently using Muslin and its alot of trouble to take the wrinkle out.
Kathy Glassford (4 years ago)
Hi Steve...I have a question regarding the mannequin.  Do you have a female mannequin as well?  Do you use just the male?  I guess you could just put a bra on the male mannequin (seriously).  
Kathy Glassford (4 years ago)
Thanks so much...great video.

I use this for lighting and it is under $60 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FG5FQ5S/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00FG5FQ5S&linkCode=as2&tag=worldforumpok-20&linkId=VKEHUQGAKTEDHCTU
Sarah Bright (4 years ago)
Just what I needed! Thanks! The sheet and open blinds for lighting is just not cutting it!
Fresh Threads (4 years ago)
excellent vid bro. Ok I'm a tad confused.  The kit #1 & 2 are all you need except for the Mannequin? So the kits have the seemless paper, lighting, but not Mannequin? So if you're starting from scratch you need a kit and a Mannequin right? 
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
Hey Reiken, Good set up.  Quick tip.  Your lights are too close to your umbrellas.  if you look at the front of your umbrellas you will see a small part of the umbrella being lit, basically the size of the light that is coming out of your umbrellas.  You need to move your light further back, just pull the umbrellas forward.  Now look at the front of the umbrellas and you will see more of the umbrella is being lit.  This will also help reduce the shadows.

Got the lighting kit and either I'm not setting it up right or it's not enough light or both. :-(

Without the cloth of course I also use the cloth Muslin one and I hate it wrinkles etc need to get the paper one and frame thanks again.

Thanks for such a great video bro! Where can I get just the metal frame to hold the backdrop or did it come with it? Thank you

Awesome! Ive been thinking about upgrading, not only for pics but for video also.  I have an awesome Imac but have to learn how to use some of the software on it still LOL  Also, good business idea on the affiliate marketing.  Buy what you use, refer others to the same great quality product! Its a win win! God bless! :)

Hello, Does the two lights light up enough for the true color on the shirts they seem not all that bright thanks, Thomas
Thomas Francis (4 years ago)
Raiken I did check your store out and its all good you have came a long way of learning on what you do I sure could use 15 mins of your time to talk to you thanks
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
His light don't look that bright on the video, but on camera they are good.  Once these light are set up its all on the camera setting to get you the correct exposure.
ultimatecouponlady (4 years ago)
Nice setup. Not necessary to sell on eBay but looks very professional!
Freebooter (4 years ago)
+jmstr57 This definitely works. I made a living sniping bad pic items and reselling when i had no car to go picking.
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
+ultimatecouponlady I say this from experience.  I have purchased a lot of products really cheap from people who had horrible pictures and I resold them for a higher price because I took professional pictures.  This is called (ebay arbitrage) I even used their exact same title just to test it.  Here is a perfect example of a designer brand shirt that I bought so cheap because it had horrible photography:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/201117081938?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT  I will be selling it for way more money and take professional pictures.  
ultimatecouponlady (4 years ago)
Not necessarily. I've seen items with garbage photos sell (including some of mine!) and some with excellent photos that never sell. Supply and demand gets the sale. If somebody wants your item and it's at the right price, it will sell.
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
Yes, you are right, it is not necessary to photograph this way for ebay.  But I can tell you this much, proffesional photographs will get the sale.

Dumpster Marcus (4 years ago)
how do you like them lights??  are they bright and work well for you...thinking of getting them!
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
All these lights work great and they are bright.  It's all in the camera setting to make it look good.  Basally, put your camera on manual mode and adjust your shutter speed.  Try setting you shutter speed at around 100th of a second.  The lower the number the  number the brighter the image will get.  Just don't go to low.  Try and stay above 70th of a second or else your images will start to get blurry. Unless you have a tripod, then you can go all the way to 15th of a second.
WHITEFANG842 (4 years ago)
Amazon has patented the write background, meaning, if u use a white background to display objects you can get a law suit.
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
OMG! this is not true at all.  I'm a professional photographer as well as an ebay seller.
Persnickety Picker (4 years ago)
Thanks for the info Steve. Not sure if I am there yet. But at least now I know where to get all this stuff. Great info as always man!
Nicholas Aleanis (4 years ago)
The seemless paper looks great Steve! It looks like your umbrellas are backwards though...unless you know something about that I missed. Anyways...inspiring as always!
The Hustle Guy (4 years ago)
You can shoot with the umbrellas either way.  This is the "shoot through" method.  This umbrellas help to make the light a bigger light source which in return make the light softer.

I have the same Cowboy light setup but I find it is not near bright enough.  I had to add other lamps and still wish I had more light.

how do i reach with photographer or ebay seller
Ressurrectio (4 years ago)
Definitely overkill but thanks for sharing. I just fling on a white wall & snap away still convert fine. For me actually when I upped my camera from a 3 Mp Aosta to 7.1 Canon & used non-ebay picture hosting like Image Shack I actually lost about 25% of my revenue since now buyers saw all that blemish detail that normally they would not see that would hold them back! Also if your listings look too pro many bidders will feel intimidated I for instance if I see a listing like this I don't bother bidding because it "might" sell too high out of my budget but often it still falls below the grade.
