    Setup
    Pic 1 & 2:
    Back ground is mahjong paper, thats the only setup. I used internal flash of 300D and did a bit of PSing..

    Pic 3 & 4 & 5:
    No Mahjong paper but you need a sun.

    Used the natural sunlight from the window, no flash ..

    Thanks for ya comments ST

    Too many unwanted reflections n unnecessory shadow on all the pics look to messy for general product shots. Play around wif reflectors like white, black cardboard/paper n also small mirror to enhance your product shots. Practice make perfect

    Like this pic but i think the bottom part a bit out of focus ( i think should keep the EAU DE COLOGNE in focus) thanks for sharing

    Very helpful comments from you, thank you. You pointed out things which i think are pretty true, things which i didn't take notice.

    You mentioned there are too many unwanted reflections in the pic but u also suggested me to use reflectors, hmmz, so is there any hard and fast rule which define what are good or bad reflections or isit just the feel that matters?

    Yep, agree with you, DOF is probably too shallow for product shots.. thank you

    #3 gets my vote too. ptwong, i don't think it's out of focus, just the DOF is on the shallow side. just my 0.02.

    Jus curious here...

    Seems like there are quite a few here who prefer #3. What is it in the picture that capture ya heart? Isit the feel? The reflection? The colour?

    I don't think the lack of DOF in #3 is all bad. As it is it strongly sets out the brand, takes away all other details and leaves the caligraphic branding image in the reader's mind.

    In a real product shoot maybe we'd even trim away the nozzle intake tube to get a clean look?

    either you PS away the inner tube or rearrange the tube to face away from the name of the product.
