A while ago I made a lightbox based on others I saw on the internet to do product photography. Then I read a book (Light Science and Magic) and found out that the box I built is worthless, however some of the foamboard and the sheet of glass I bought aren't necessarily so. I'm actually trying to sell all this stuff locally first (I HATE HATE HATE shipping stuff, but if I can't then I'll try OT and other camera sites). Things I hate about all of these shots 1. Crap shows up on the glass and lenses even after cleaning the hell out of it 2. Double reflection under the items (I guess the glass is too thick, or I'm doing something wrong 3. Can't always put the light where I want it and block it from where I don't want it. (hard to put small gobos in front of an umbrella with no clamps) Other than that, they turned out OK. I'm kicking myself for not taking a WA shot of the whole setup. I had a sheet of glass sitting on two ottomans with an angled piece of black foamcore under the glass (sloping down towards me). I had a b1600 fired into a 32" umbrella camera left and 3 feet above the stuff, and a 580EX camera right about 1 foot above the stuff. I don't know the exact lighting ratio because I'm kinda comparing apples and oranges. I put a sheet of black foamcore angled towards me on the back edge of the glass to eliminate reflections from the room off the glass. I had another sheet of black foamcore that I would move around in an attempt to kill reflections off the LCD screen and stuff.
