the lighting set up
(zebra teapot by Gary Rith)
SO Miri is talking about lighting set ups and my old pal Gord had suggested a webpage where a dude tells you how to make a light box for taking shots of art work and what have you. I didn't have cloth, and used tracing paper instead, bought 3 cheapo light at Home Despots and daylight compact flourescents etc, and here ya go: serviceable pics taken in a cadboard box. I have a grey sheet of paper too, which I use on the rare white pot as a background, when I remember.
I am really NOT a perfectionist, and my little snap shot camera just gets set on auto and the light toned down a bit, and VOILA: good enough pics for under 20 bucks.
