Here are some pictures that i came up with playing around with light boxes. The apricot and knife picture were done with nothing more than some printer paper taped together in a makeshift light box; the lighting was provided by a desk lamp and computer monitor. The coffee and salad one were done in a larger diy light box. The lighting for the coffee was almost all natural exceot for the adition of one flourscent lamp. The salad used the flourescent lamp and my 20D's built in flash, diffused with a card of paper proped up between the lens and flash. C&C about the pictures is very welcome as i may be using these as samples to show a small buisness owner to shoot some product for her coffee shop and is something i would like to get better at as a side buisness (hopefully). Because of this i have been sticking with pure white backgrounds because the pictures will then be used by a graphic designer friend of mine to create the sinage with. Now less talking and on with the pictures. (EXIF tags are still attached) 1. 2. 3. For this one i know i should have clamped the aperature down waay more than i did. My biggest problem though was with lighting and trying to minimise that light reflectionon the front of the cup. 4.
