I have been watching some product photography videos on YouTube and noticed the photographer always changes the camera settings so the camera is showing black before he starts turning on his lighting. This way none of the natural light is effecting the photograph. I tried the same thing last week and this is the outcome. All three are using my Nikon D7100 at ISO 200, 1/250, F8 with Nikon 50mm 1.8d. I used a gray cloth backdrop that was approximately 4, maybe 5 feet back. 1) Rectangular soft-box with a grid camera right at approximately 45 degrees. 2) Same soft-box, same location camera right with a strip soft-box and grid 90 degrees camera left. The strip soft-box is pulled forward so the back of it is a little behind my head. 3) Same strip soft-box 90 degrees camera left, same location. I darkened up the background a little bit on this one so make it almost but not completely black. C&C welcome, always learning. Thanks guys.
