Hello:

I believe that photography must be accessible for everybody.
From my point of view, knowledge is more important than gear.
This is why I am always looking for alternatives solution rather than to go to the shop and buy new gear.

And I like to share my experiments with you. Hopefully you will find them easy to make and cheap and, more important, USEFUL.

BACKGROUNDS

As we saw many times, the background is very important, as its function is not only to “fill” the picture but also to make the main subject more important.
The selection of the right background in product photography is a very important decision as it involves the way we want to show the product to the observer.

DOME FOR SMALL PRODUCTS

 

Nowadays it is easy and common to sell things we are not using any more on internet markets such as E-bay© , it can be large items but small too.
It is usually complicated to take a photograph of small objects for many reasons such as finding the right light, with no shadows; keeping the camera still to avoid blurring pictures, if the objects have a reflecting surface we need to take care not to be in the picture by reflection, and more.
