Greetings all, I have browsed around the web until my eyes hurt, so I thought I would try making a post for my specific needs. I work for a company that builds computer boards. Recently they became aware that I dabble in photography, and have asked what I need to take our own pictures of products. I have brought in some basic equipment, but they are now asking for my recommendations for equipment. That is where you good people come in. Instead of trying to describe everything, I have taken a couple of shots (for reference I have a Nikon D40 and D300 that I can use) of the room and current equipment to hopefully let you see what I am dealing with. I have also taken a shot of a product for you to see my issues there. View of the table/paper/lights: view of the room (has 1 fluorescent light which is off when taking pictures) and here is a test shot of a product. It seems much to soft from me trying to blow out the background. I would really like to get the background white so that I don't have to spend a lot of time in photoshop cutting the products out. Any recommendations on techniques and equipment you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
