Nice effort, but: 1) You need to show the whole product, not just a part of it! 2) Fill-in flash! Fill-in flash! You have the camera on a tripod, you need to get the nasty shadows out of the picture...
In the first one, you have reflections in the watch and you can see clearly the mergers of the background! Second one is better, but you needed a smaller aperture (F8-f10).
Still, a nice effort given the DiY nature of the project!
1st of all,thank you for the comment. I tried to deal with the shadows as much as possible,using a built-in flash to do 3 jobs is kind of nerve-wreaking,close to impossible. You see..every light in my house,inclusind the outside coming-trough-my-window-source-light is yellow,the only white light was of course,the flash. I just liked the glows in the 1st & the shallow DoF in the 2nd.I know it's miles away from a professional product photo.
After I'll be buying that dslr I was planning for,with a proper flashgun & some accesories,then I'll be doing some serious product shots.
1. I always shoot RAW That makes my compact camera unique. Still,I liked the blue effect on the background from the 1st shot...I will adjust both of the photos & reply with the results. 2. I don't have money to invest in a cheap flash. It's pointless since I'll get some dslr gear later on.
well, your camera ain't unique my compact camera also shoots RAW and I know at least two more models that can do that!
for me, a cheap flash means something like a used SB-28 from Nikon or a Sunpak383 (both around half/or third the price of a new SB-600, which is a killer flash) and you can use them even with the DSLR as slave flashes or back-ups!
Hmm... now I want to read some more about product photo! I'm curious.
ca fundal cel putin ca iluminare de dedesubt recomand o bucata de hartie de calc lipita de o sticla(eu folosesc un raft efectiv) si daca luminezi de dedesubt dispar umbrele de la lumina directa. eventual daca pui si niste calc sau ceva peste sursa de lumina directa sa inmoaie putin lumina. backgroundul nu trebuie sa fie neaparat alb adica pentrru cea as merge si ceva material as in velvet or smth.
