Very cool! I learned a trick from Al Jacobs about using the same fluorescent panels with pvc tubing to make a curved background. My son borrowed it to photograph guitars which he sells on eBay. Necessity is the mother of invention.
Brilliant! I have an idea in me head now on a cheap table top studio set up with pins in it to adjust the curvature of the panels....great idea Rich.
First, this is not a professional job. Don't misunderstand me, please. The pics look fine but these should not be a final proof from any pro studio.
Secondly,your local studio really charges you 1000$ for one single job like this? This too is wrong.
Hardly a need for professional job in this instance....never claimed to be...just needed e-maillable images....Better than with a camera phone.
By the time I run this through my marketing group, studio session and proofs, yea, about $1000, maybe $700...and two weeks. I needed something today.
You want to do it cheaper for me? :wink:
Actually, Randy, you did a good job. But it is possible for a products studio to make it even better (please it's all about the equipment and nothing about talent or will) with the help of CGI and all. But anything above 300-500$ is too much. So for saving 1000$ you did great for sure.
I'll end up at the studio in the end....but I needed to slap something together. I was more trying to convey how in a pinch what you can dream up to get by.
I have done enough brochures, sell sheets, web pages and catalogs to know what to expect from the local pro's....I am there often. I never would accept this as catalog quality material...but it was close enough for a 600 x 600 DPI e-mail in a pinch....and I was able to do it myself in the basement.
They aren't great shots and I wasn't looking for any accolades on that...I was simply pointing out that a little creativity and some tools we all have can come in handy during a day at the office.....
So how about taking a look at this? :smile:
Let me get this straight,... you told her you should spend it on a lense BEFORE you spent it,... and she punched you.....
Spending it,... getting the lense,... she'd punch you..... LOL
Your information/purchasing/injury sequence is out of order... LOL
Note to self,.. tell wife AFTER purchase,... duck and cover : ~ )
Nice idea for a home studio. I have one of those portable light boxes and have made some good eBay item photos with it. The fluorescent plastic panel is something I'll keep in mind.
good job. I would definitely buy the 2 on the right before the one on the left. The left packaging looks more generic. although it is only a table cloth I just think the 2 on the right look that much better.
i think they are great pictures that should get the job done which is your point in the first place.
I think they turned out great, Randy. Nice that your innovation saved you $1000.
