Re: Product photography with seamless backgrounds, help with setup

Instead, get a small softbox on a boom and hover it over the top of your set.

Provide fill light from small foil-covered reflectors arranged at sides and front. [A3 and A4 sized]

Graduate the plain background for depth and separation by hanging a flag at the back of the softbox.

Thanks for the input.

I guess i'll just be getting some plain backgrounds then. Sounds like the best solution. I searched a bit on youtube and found setups in the direction your pointing me as well. Less to pack away too.

Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing
