I've been using black foam as a background. It looks as though I'm getting too many reflections from the granular structure of the foam. What do you think? I post processed the file from RAW using DPP. Equipment used: Hyperdrive HD80 - to stand the bowl on. Black foam from Michaels. Canon 17-85 IS Canon XT Ebay light tent (15" square). Sunlight - I took the photo outside on my patio. I zipped the tent closed around the lens to avoid reflections. It looks to me as though I need several things: 1. A black card instead of the white end on the tent (so that there's no diffused light hitting the front of the subject. 2. A finer grained background. What do you think?
