I'm taking an online course and looking for some help with the questions at the end of a unit. I'll probably be posting them all as I'm new to photography and most of this is over my head. I read all the material and did research and I'm such a newbie that I'm still not getting it. Just to make it clear I don't want someone to say ok here is the answer, I really do what to know why. So here is the question: An advertising agency has hired you to photograph individual pack shots of a range of packet soups. The soups come in small rectangular boxes, which have a glossy finish. They want the pack to look heroic and important. And this is the equipment we can use: ␣Two small format DSLR cameras with full sized 35mm sensors ␣20mm lens ␣24mm tilt-shift lens ␣35mm lens ␣50mm lens ␣90mm tilt-shift lens ␣100mm macro lens ␣135mm lens ␣300mm lens ␣Neutral Density Filter ␣Polarizing Filter ␣Two quick cycle portable flash units made specifically for your cameras ␣Transportable studio flash gear ␣Tripod ␣Monopod This is the best I can do: I'm pretty sure I will need a tripod to get really clear in focus shots. I'm also sure I will need a polarizing filter to reduce the glare off the packaging. I'm not even sure what they mean by "pack shots". Sigh. A wide angle lens would make the soup packet look bigger so would that make it look "heroic"? I don't really understand what a tilt shift lens does. Ugh I'm so out of my depth! Thanks for any ideas, I really want to understand the why of this.
