    Noise Issues with interior photography, even with strobes and low ISO...

    I take product photos for a bedding company, and we shoot inside a home. I use studio strobes, and as far as I know, my camera settings are correct and the photos are well lit. I usually keep the ISO between 200-640 (640 for the darker rooms), and between f/11 and f/22. However, there is still...

    Beginner Product photography - lighting and best time of day

    Hi everyone, I've been reading some articles and it appears to me that the perceived wisdom is that when dealing in product photography (with natural light only) one should choose a south-facing window - early morning being bluer light, before dusk a more golden light. But the idea is to...

    Which type of tripod head for product photography ?

    I am doing more product photography. I have not looked at heads for 15 years or so, so I am totally out of touch with developments with styles of head and with mounting plates. I have no loyalty to any brand. I have been using a pan and tilt. Should I bother to consider a ball head (that can...

    Focal length for product photography - 9mm or 90mm?

    Just to set the scene I take shots of ceramic tableware in a tent or on worktops with two or three 100 Watt continuous lights. I'm restricted with lighting because I don't have the space for flash lights with soft boxes. This is our own product, I'm not a professional photographer by any stretch...

    Monthly Sko77y's Project

    So...I've considered starting a project like this for the past three years, but never do and always "forget". So I'm starting this to encourage me to actually finish a project, rather than plan, accumulate and forget. Brief: Use my Product Photography Light Tent (used once I should add), to...
