Hi all, I am a new member on the PhotoForum, but before I launch this discussion, rest assured that I have done my homework! I purchased Zach's OneLight DVD (great dvd by the way) and read multiple forum threads and articles. As the title suggests, I will be needing an efficient method of taking pictures of small to medium size products for online publishing (ie an Ecommerce). The route I've decided to go is to build a lit-background frame like the one seen here: Web Boggles: DIY: Streamlined product photography with back-lit slope backdrop We'll be using fluorescent tubes for a lit background as well as regular lights from the front for the actual product. I'm wondering, does it matter which fluorescent tube we use? What about color temperature? Also what about white balancing as mentioned in the article (not sure how to do it not what it's purpose is). In the end, I am aiming for a picture just like the one of the boot: sharp, clear colors and a pure white background. With the right setup, we hope to be able to snap near-perfect pictures and pretty much be done with it. Thanks for your help!
