Photographing products inside my apartment

I wanted to photograph some items in my apartment as product photography. I love using 50 mm prime lenses! So I was itching to use one in my apartment. I ended up with a hodge-podge of random things in my apartment. It was fun to crank my aperture much higher than usual. I didn’t want to go overboard with doing f/1.8 so I did f/3.5. I used to use f/1.8 a lot more but I find doing just a little bit less makes things look better. (For me, anyway.)

This article by Margot Whitney has some good tips for product photography.
