Infinity curves make taking pretty decent product photos effortless. The 'theory' is, that by having no edges behind your object, a feeling of endless space is created. Why would you want that? So that there are no harsh lines or gradients in light behind your object - giving a cleaner background with all the focus on your object.
How to Create a Basic Infinity Curve
1. Take a sheet of plain, white paper and pin it to your wall/ desk/ wherever so that bout half remains on the floor. This will create a soft curve. I'm using sketching paper, but cheap, glossy paper would be better!
2. Compose your shot and take it.
3. Edit, if need be. Finne!
Here's my shot - notice how there's no feeling of the background and 'floor' meeting? I'd usually use a studio light and two reflectors to balance the light a little better (see how grey it is around the edges), but I thought I'd show what ANYONE with some paper, two pins and a camera can achieve.
