    Nice. But the thing that is distracting are those two shadows between the camera and the can.

    meh...
    i barely notice them.
    i think maybe i will reshoot and move the other lens a bit to the left to cover where the shadow is.
    other than that, I don't think there's much to be done about it.

    Meh indeed! I do that a lot with my stuff to...problem is no one else does! IF you can get them out it would be a great product/art shot The meh factor just makes it a pretty colors shot. ;)

    well, i wasn't trying for a "product" shot. i was trying for "something orange" shot.
    i could have lit it more, but it would have screwed with the background.
    honestly, i don't think shadows always equal a detriment to a photo. It just seems to be one of those "buzzword" phrases people are use to throwing out there whenever they see them.
    OMG shadows! RUN!

    I could shoot this against a white backdrop, light the snot out of the front and sides and get rid of pretty much all the shadowing....might make for a better "product" shot, but certainly not anything I would enjoy. Unless Nikon and/or Fanta contact me for a shoot.

    I think the shadows give it character. something besides some boring, flat, and featureless picture.

    I think I didn't make myself very clear on the 'why'. The shadows make part of the camera seem to float, and also the lens has no shadow to offset that effect. Just disconcerting I think. Like I said it's a good, very good 'colors' shot though. Hey, it's your pic, right? ;)

    That lighting issue is no easy one, if you solve that you have really done something!

    side note: the verticallity of the can and camera conflict. Shot with a wide angle close iup I presume.

    im not really getting any kind of camera "floating" vibe there.
    i see the can issue, but nothing on the camera.

    MUCH better to my mind anyway. Maintained the outstanding color with nothing to distract from that. I can see this is some Bank foyer, or Corp hallway. Nice.

    I think I like the can shape better in the second one.
    I switched to the 85mm.

    Careful with that tilt. That mustache might slide right off the right side of the frame.
