    Hi everyone this is my first post.

    I have a client that needs some sunglasses photographed for advertising purposes so I need to light and shoot them with my canon 5d. I need a little lighting studio setup and was wondering if anyone could recommend some good kits??

    thanks

    Ok, so you will need a lighting tent, B&H sells them, then you need the lights. Do you have any studio lights? Give me the run down of what you are shooting, numbers, and what equipment you have, ok?

    You can get a nice set of Elinchrom lights with a backdrop and all the equipment for about $4000-$5000.

    what camera settings i'm told set it to aperture priority and go as high as possible.
    and use spot focus... would that be correct?? what lens though?? I have a canon 5d mark II and a 50mm 1.4 or a 17- 85mm F4 EFS .. should I buy another lens I was thinking of getting a nicer zoom lens 24-70mm F2.8
