1. Straight-On Product on White Photo

2. Lifestyle Photo of the Knife in Use (with hand)

It is important to highlight what the knife is best at, whether it is a general chef's knife, or it is a peeling knife, a chopping knife. In kitchen product photography it is all about showing function. This photo helps the viewers process the information faster and confirm whether the knife will be useful to them for whatever purpose they are looking for. If you are selling a bread knife or a general knife that is suitable for cutting bread, make sure to include some hard crust bread that is difficult to cut with a general knife and showcase beautiful evenly cut slices in the photo, as well.
