Book cover laying flat on surface with camera overhead

Mark Reis 12 months ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 12 months ago 1

Is there a way to position the camera over a book cover so that the book is laying flat on a surface with the camera directly above and the light source creating a cast shadow? The attached image is what I would like to achieve. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.



Hello Mark,

In Boxshot you can rotate shapes, so you can do it this way:

Then you can right click the shape and select Tools->Put on the Floor to make sure the whole book is visible:

Finally, you need to enable sunlight to the the shadow you want:

There is a shortcut for the first two steps, btw. You can right click the book and select Tools->Stack, then configure the stack to have just one book. Result will be the same.
