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.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.
Hardly a need for professional job in this instance....never claimed to be...just needed e-maillable images....Better than with a camera phone.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.
