    I found an easy to make light box and took some shots using a bounced flash. I'm gonna also get some clamp lamps and try it. Are these any good?

    Thanks

    #1 - A rotten banana that had some rice spilled on it.

    #2 - A weed from the yard. It looks more lit on the back though.

    I'm going to find some better subjects and try clamp lights. I'll post my results.

    Bookmarked. Good shots too. I think I'd like a lower angle on the banana, and more depth of field. Normally I really dig the shallow DOF, but for some reason I think this would be much better if it was all in focus.

    I think a shallow DOF would work better with the flower though, if you had the flower at a more extreme angle (basically, rotate the flower counter clockwise a bit). If that makes any sense.

    Thanks for the link, I like the first shot, second is a little to far from the subject IMO.

    Neat project.

    Did you use any other lights besides the bounce flash?
