We are inundated with Product Photography on a daily basis. Magazines, newspapers, billboards, etc., it comes at us 24/7. Try to think of this assignment as a print advertisement, or if you want to do something simpler, an image to sell something on Ebay. Even if all you want to do is sell something on Ebay, presenting it well may make the difference between selling it for the price you want or not selling at all. Who knows, you may find this is your photographic niche.
