Hello,

I am struggling a little to create still lifes that look as though they have been lit by natural light. I do not have a window in the studio and must use strobes to create this look:

I often shoot large web images of small things on tables and need them to look very natural and window lit and am struggling to make them look real due to what could be a mixture of lighting and photoshop.

Can anyone help?

To duplicate that look, I would suggest a couple of 36" shoot through umbrellas. They are quick to set up and can produce a soft overall light with a minimum of shadowing.

Good luck!
