Photography "Studio" Tips


Recommended Posts

I am updating my collection inventory and will be photographing every item at least once. I would like to know what other forum member's "studios" look like so I can get an idea of what all I need. Also if forum members have any tips for photographing military items do tell.

All comments are welcomed.

You just can't beat natural light for photography. If it's a decent day and the sun is out, don't hesitate to take them outside!

 

Don't worry...we all get funny looks from the neighbors. Haha

A neutral color backdrop, dont use the flash on your camera, even lighting and Photoshop. If using lighting and you want to go all out you can get two spot lights and put one on each side of the subject at 45 degrees then one more pointing straight on.
