    Depends on what kind of products you are shooting. Depends on the needs of your client. Depends on what equipment you have at your disposal. Depends on how much they're paying you. Depends on how much equipment you can have at your disposal.

    Jed is correct.
    It is better if Andre can give an idea about what kind of product and what will the image be used for.

    yup perhaps you might want to share more details with us. I'm absolutely no expert on this but I've done product shots with digicam, table lamps and mahjong paper, client had very little budget. The shots were for web use

    My product shoot setup must be one of the simplest around.

    1. 1 corner of a office cubicle, with partitions about 1.5m tall.
    2. Large white foam board on top.
    3. Seamless background made from mahjong paper taped together. (hmm.... need to get other colours...)
    4. reflectors on left and right.
    5. 1 single flash, bounced to top reflector.
    6. Metering via Minolta Auto Meter IV F.
    7. Shot via ancient Coolpix 950.

    Gives results like these:








    Last one a bit harsh....

    Can shoot a card also:



    I find the setup good enough for web-destined product shots of smallish items. For big stuff, you will probably need something more elaborate.

    I'll post a photo when I got the extra time to shoot the setup. But meanwhile, try to visualize from what I've written above. The shots up there are taken with nothing fanciful.
