    But i haven't been swayed. The photo doesn't entice me to go out and buy that pair of headphones

    Don't give up! If you want to improve, I'm sure you will
    Maybe can post just a few selected photos in still-life gallery, and seek critique from members there.
    Exploring! :)

    Here comes my super budget set up.



    Results look like this 8D









    I use long shutter and slowly paint my light and shadow on my figurines.
    Meaning to say it'll work as long as you have torchlight, just a matter of how patient you are! XD

    BTW, do you have a picture of where you position the lamps?
    Or your set up just when you are about to take the shot?

    Nope I don't, there are many cases as I've mentioned before; I paint my light slowly.

    What I mean is I turn my shutter on bulb mode with remote control. I take the lamp and move around to create various lighting conditions I want. I can use a torchlight a create all rim, key and fill light as I want to.

    By looking at my photo you could probably guess where I shone my lamp at actually. 8D

    Anyway my method is real cheap but definitely not the most effective in terms of speed.

    It's a lot on trial and error and many retakes to get the ideal lighting you want.

    Though I must say it's pretty damn fun.



    This is lighted with just a SAF torchlight (as good as free!) The eyes have LED inside so yeah.

    Just some desaturation and contrast for the last piece. Nothing much

    i have to agree on that. there is no mood in "hardware" to induce a sales, then again this is not the critique folder either.

    apart from the above material, can also consider a transparent perspex that you can lay a colored paper (eg white/ black/ red) below to give a reflective surface below.
