    I am a photo/camera 'user'.
    I want something. I buy the most expensive dummy camera, switch to auto and keep shooting an item until the lighting and sharpness etc looks ok, to a layman. THen I use the picture. That is how I work all along. I take take casual pictures, and I take pictures of my personal watch collection, and I take product pictures of products I sell or distribute. So there is no real clear line of commercial or personal really.
    I had some great pictures like some I take in myanmar, or those I took in the outskirt of hubei, of the non tourist part of the china great wall, where there is no civilization in sight, and the great wall goes down the mountain and get submerged in a lake, and the other end goes up and disappears into the clouds... will try to post some of those pictures in the other thread.

    If you dun want to spend too much $$$, for less than $20 u can DIY a light tent with PVC pipes and white cloth, follow: http://www.pbase.com/wlhuber/light_box_light_tent Any hardware shop should sell, i even have to saw them myself

    Then get 2-4 table lamps with daylight, big size color papers from bookstore for background. Connect cam to PC and use the Canon Remote Capture application for instant viewing, play with the lights.

    Mine :



    Dimension: 60L x 50W x 50H (cm)

    Or if you can find a cardboard box >> http://www.instructables.com/ex/i/BE...E506/?ALLSTEPS

    Hmmm.... u don't need so many lights. If the object is small, I prefer 1 main light. Better definition of the product. This series was taken with only 1 light:
