    So I have decided to start more serious photography (as supposed to just playing and not knowing what im doing).

    I'd like to start object photography. In particular I want to photograph my backgammon.

    Can you guys point me to the right articles to read and learn?

    Thanks

    like your bat gammon board? or you friends playing batgammon?

    You could get some really cool shots with a macro lens.

    Well....It ain't hard really, I actually do all mine with a POS Kodak Point and shoot. In the most simple manor All you need is a good tripod, white or black cards and ample light.

    For This shot I used two peices of white paper board, two table lamps and an overhead ceiling light over my dining room table with a Kodak Easy Share.

    Eventually you can get into the boxes stuff and whatnot but for a backgammon set I think you would be just fine doing it this way.

    thanks guys. I dont want to buy a new lens right now as i can't afford it :). so i will try to use my current 24-70 lens ( broke my 50mm one too unfortunately).

    I think i will end up setting up the lightbox

    The 24-70 should hold you over ok for now, My P&S has a 35-111 and I don't even come close to the 111 end when shooting that stuff.
