Product Photography C&C (round 3)
Feb 29, 2012

I figured i'd start a new thread for this one. Here's the old one.

Okay, i really like this one and i'd like to get some feedback on it (ie what i could do to improve it). The reason i'm asking is cause i really liked my first attempt at the time, and now all i can see is what's wrong with it...

Setup: I got a huge slab of oak from my uncle (about 6' x 3' x 6" thick) that i'm going to use for my new bench and i decided to try using it in this shot. So i've got that slab on my current bench with a huge 'softbox' i made from scrap wood, tracing paper, and white cardboard photo left with a 40" 5-in-1 white reflector on the right. I had the SB700 inside the 'softbox' firing at 1/4 power i think... and that's it. i tried using other lights but i really liked the lighting from that one light...

Could i have used another light somewhere? If so, where and with what modifier. Like i said, i played around with an umbrella but couldnt get anything i liked.

(on an unrelated note, how do i get the picture to link to a larger version of the shot?)
