nice picture of a boring item ;-) (joking with ya)

It would be nice if the actual buckle region was in focus more I think... but good job!

I used a little more exposure to get the completely white background that i couldn't get before but it only seems to work well with darker colored objects, anything lighter and the white begins to turn a creamy color or it looks over exposed.

So if anyone has any suggestions for that it'd be great.

And thanks for the praise, really appreciate it!

I am very new to all this... so...

what kind of lighting are you using?
how do you have it setup?
I've seen different methods for building lightboxes, which one did you use??

all i did was look around on the internet to find and make the easiest and cheapest lightbox i could, i've got an example of my first photos on this thread

http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=103568

theres a photo of my ghetto setup there too. i got two 150 watt exterior lights to begin with for use on the sides but they didn't seem to give off enough light so i stole my dads 500 watt ones and had a little one at the front.

Im still in the process of playing about with it tho aswell so if you find any good tips give me a shout :D

lighting looks perfect. only thing i could suggest is going with a bigger depth of field so the entire belt is in focus

I've built one like this from Strobist.com I found it on a thread here on TPF.
