    Default Setting a blogshop. How do I photograph product?

    Do I need to buy a big white cloth to place the product on? My 600D and 50mm f1.8 enough?

    If no light, use tripod, i tried it before using long exposure to compensate enough lighting. lol

    With long exposure also can do light painting with torchlight. If need more diffused light can put said torchlight in paper bag

    use daylight also can, doing it in a shade like 5 foot way, as long you color balance it, use reflectors to kick in or shield some light,
    nobody can tell whether you shoot with high end strobe light or makeshift studio.

    the only problem is the "studio" only available in day time.

    If you're selling small accessories, the max magnification of the 50 1.8 may not be enough..

    Thanks for all reply. I have a sigma 120-300 2.8. Should I use that?
