    thanks. I'll take note of that. I was using a flash from the side. Maybe not such a good idea after all. But I wasn't able to light from below cos the "tank" was on a table top

    you can try placing the tank in between 2 tables,
    so you can light from below
    but I think that the light should be better from the top.
    try it out.

    Care to share the whole set up so that everyone can learn and experiment?
    As a whole the pictures look great.

    Cheers!

    Nice shots.

    Mind takes a general shot of the whole set up, so is easier for others to comprehend.

    but the gradient look of the background is nice. maybe if you have another flash, use it to lit the shaver from front or above so that it'll be evenly lit. at the same time, the background still has the gradient look.

    hey by the way, i know a little chinese. i know "lah" but what do "liao" and "leh" mean?

    thanks for the advice!

    haha...sorry lots of singlish here. "liao" is hokkien and loosely translated means "finished". "leh" is singlish - just used to finish a sentence

    That's a Beckham shaver right??

    Very good effort

    Can try to throw your MK II in, all the Darkside can help take the shot for you.

    thanks for the compliments from the master

    didn't think anyone would be interested in my setup so forgot to take a shot, but this was what I did:



    my house ceiling very low and white, so like a reflector. For the flash, I was using Manual mode at 1/64 power IIRC. Also, I learnt that should use a light-weight razor. I was originally using my own which is quite heavy, and the splash etc doesn't look nice. The razor in the pic is my wife's
