    And I'm not talking about any old baseball cards....I'm talking about thousands and thousands of dollars worth of very old and rare baseball cards! :noes:

    It's a good thing I carry a buttload of liability insurance!

    Just finished shooting over 500 shots. Now I'm converting the files to tiff and web jpegs. Spent over two hours sitting on the floor, taking one pic after another and my legs are cramped!

    Camera on tripod looking down. Black velvet background. Two studio strobes set on either side shooting thru a white umbrella and softbox. Triggered the camera and strobes with pocketwizards.

    Here's what the final images will look like. I'm still tweaking the settings.
