    i just built a light tent from some PVC and Muslin, and some lamps with daylight balanced bulbs.

    i needed it for a project for a class.
    anywho, i've always been interested in product photography,

    but im not sure what to look for. what makes a good product photo over another.
    i kno my samples are good shots, but is there actually a lot more to do? or at a certain point is it just knitpicking and personal preference?

    here are some samples i did just now to make this thread more interesting.


    my lovely 17-55 :thumbup: (ignore the dust on the lens, i kno that is 1 thing that would make this pic better)

    Actually, those are some of the best product shots I've seen. The only thing you could change to make things more interesting is the angle...play around with it. The best angle will be different for each shot.

    I think your doing just fine. Watch out for shadows. And as sideburns said. Angles angles angles.


    Good luck
