Reflections on a year in 365 photographs

365:SIXTY-THREE

Just a product shot of a lens I'm selling.

Product

Yup.  Had about that much time today.  I’m selling this particular lens so one of the product shot series became my 365 entry for today.  Back to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow.

On a side note, these types of product shots have become exceedingly easy to do well in this digital age.  One simply needs a couple of lights, whether flash or even just a pair of lamps.  I built a box out of white parachute nylon, white sandwich board and poster stock, and some velcro for about $10 and an afternoon of work with scissors and glue.  Just shoot away, process with a quick white balance to get rid of any color cast and there you have it.  Or you could pay $50 or $60 bucks for a pre-made tent online.  It was more fun for me this way.  I’ve more than made my money back on my DIY kit and will probably get many years of use out of it.
