I have a friend that throws clay and is beginning her website. She obviously wants a photo gallery of her wares on display. She has seen the following websites and prefers the fade-to-black effect. I have shot a few before in a DIY lightbox and while I don't have a problems with an all white or all black background lighting, these are perplexing me. I envision a three light setup, with one overhead (possibly snooted) and two diffused on either side ~45° from camera. I have 1x SB600 and 2x SB800's, shoot through and reflected umbrellas and a 5-in-1 reflector, which I expect to use as a diffuser. I can work with TTL or manual settings. Here are a couple of links she provided as examples. Ben Owen Pottery - Home Julie Olson ::: Studio Potter ::: Functional Salt-Glazed I'm not real keen of the shadows at the base of the products and would like to avoid them while still retaining the soft lighting and gradual fade. Thanks for your help.
