    Here is my table top product shot set up,
    just one light, two reflectors, some mirrors.

    I don't use light tent, and I don't like it.

    TS already said the company is pushing him to do it. In that case they can already expect what to receive. I say go for it, when there is zero expectations and one is intent on trying their best I think good things can happen. Just treat it as a learning process. If results are really bad, it'll be just what the company deserves. You don't have to blame yourself.

    The key to product photography is problem solving. We solved the lighting problem, now it's up to you to solve the rest as it comes up. Of course you can always check back with us, but I rather to see some potential in you as well.

    When you're setting up can try using the other 2 lights the same way, but different positions to see how they bounce and effect. Do your own analysis and observation. But always remember, safety first. Worse case is the equipment spoil, but never get yourself hurt. Take care, have fun!

    Good that you're confident !!! Glass is one of the hardest to shoot due to reflection.

    Cheers and Happy shooting.
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    yes, the cube is for post process WB in LR4, btw, I only use it for product shooting


    double clips is design to attach on strobe light reflector for holding makeshift barn door, gel etc... originally.
