    In the near future I think i'm going to be doing some product photography for a lady. I heard some of her comments about the photographs this other guy she had do the first round of photos and one of the problems is that the pictures have to be done on a white backdrop (to match the website) and some of the photographs are of white tee-shirts. The problem is teh shirt blending into the background. Anyone got any suggestions on how to light the shot so that the white shirt will stand out from a white background? I have access to a studio w/ 3 lights (I have a softbox and 2 umbrellas for them if necessary.)

    Light the background with a seperate light, so that it's over exposed. Put the white t-shirt in zone 7 or 8 (2 or 3 stops over mid gray), and put the background in zone 9 or 10 (4 or 5 stops over middle gray).
