I actually never seen it from that point of view ! Thank you so much because reading this post actually gives me a different perspective... and a new perspective is better than hindsight '! Because I sometimes need to step outside of the box and look in !! TY
Having a clean, clear background is very important, as you pointed out. I found a roll of shiny art paper, matt finish on the other side, and tape it to the wall wherever I need it for a good background. I've also improvised using a black velveteen blouse for smaller items (like jewelry) that don't photo well on white background. I've used the same blouse and rolled it to use as a support inside shoes, purses, etc. A Boolean effect always makes your pics look professional, IMHO.
What I usually do, I take picture of the box and another one of what's inside the box. În a couple of days I should receive a stand that's white color and as a background I will use the wall from the apartment, fell free to check my listings in about 2-3 days and let me know how it looks
