    Mock-ups for portfolios

    hi all, i'm trying to put together a portfolio but finding it quite difficult to find good mock-up templates on the web. i'm talking about digital mock-ups, preferably ones that use smart objects rather than you having to distort or warp the image yourself. does anyone have any particularly good ones they could share with me? i've tried making my own but they always look a bit fake. thanks so much :)

    There are a lot of blank renderings (books, boxes, bags, etc) on stock sites that you can get very inexpensively. If you do a search on shutterstock or a similar stock art site for something like "blank bag" or "white bag" you'll see lots.

    If you have the photographic skill, it's usually better to shoot a comp yourself though. Ideally you would want all of your dimensional imagery to have the same look and feel throughout the portfolio.

    thank you! hm, i don't own a tripod but i do have a dslr. the lighting is the issue - i've tried using my desk lamp, but the way it casts shadows isn't the best look, and a softbox is an expense i can't really justify. do you have any suggestions on how to set up the lighting if i was to shoot it myself to make it look nicer?

    Daylight actually works really well. You can probably even hand hold the dslr. Just get a large piece (24" x 36" for instance) of gray or neutral paper stock and place it under your pieces. You'd be surprised how many design studios document work in exactly this way. You can balance the backgrounds after you've shot everything. This is a very very stripped down and simple way to proceed, but it works.

    Alternatively you should try to get the same background color and effect across your digital comps.
