    Did Amazon Really get a Patent for shooting objects against a white background?
    Not by my reading of the Patent. What Amazon received is a Patent for a very specific "Studio Arrangement" for the shooting of product photographs against a white background, which even Amazon admits (in the patent wording) is prior art; as in, "Prior art solutions..."

    So I will continue to create photographs like this:


    For the rest of my take, as a photographer, on this topic, read my blog post.

    BTW - I put this in the Midnight Cafe because the turmoil over this patent concerns merchants who display products on their sites. It may also cause apprehension among affiliates who create their own photos (like my "cookie" above) to illustrate blog posts and/or to use in product reviews.
