I have been shooting pictures of sunglasses using a light cube, using three 500 W flood lights (left, right, and overhead) - - and shooting with Canon Digital rebel XT with 50mm lens. My results have been very good however I know it can be better.... The main problems is I feel this has not been letting me get that nice glossy finish on the frames and the rich colors-- that appears when shooting without the tent. Also I always end up seeing the opening of the light tent as it is not conveinent -- due to the repositioning of the camera to use the cover. Howver when i shoot without the tent just on a whitebackground with know difussion the shadows are a mess. So I am looking for some suggestionfor equipment you would recommend for shooting this product without the light tent -- i need a good lighting setup -- that will control the shadows but also light the products accurately... What kind of lighting should I be looking at, what kind of diffusion(umbrella, soft box...) It doesnt have to be the cheapest but i dont want it to cost a fortune either. Pros versus cons of certain setups. Any recommentions / advice definitely appreciated.
