    so now that i have free time since i'm out of school, i tried to plan a product shoot. i have mixed feelings about the shots: i kinda like 'em since it since it was my first time trying this, but i don't really like 'em...eh.

    anyway my set up:
    1.navy blue backdrop instead of white, because it's a white ball and navy blue is one of their team colors
    2.lamp covered with tissue paper for light
    3.nikon d5000 with 18-55mm

    before people start telling me to go buy a bunch of equipment for next time, just to let you know, i'm a teenager w/ not a lot of $$.

    Try stretching the backdrop so there are less wrinkles/folds that are visible.

    Some additional lighting is necessary. Try experimenting with some lights from your house...just don't tell your mother I said so...;)

    i'm going to invest in a good flash soon, probably the sb600. my dad has an umbrella reflector from when he was doing photography. he says bouncing the flash would be good.

    thanks for the comment, any more?

    straighten the backdrop out, pull the ball away from it a bit too. maybe make a bounce card to hold under the flash
