Always enjoyed taking pictures, but mostly it's been outdoors shooting landscapes/waterfalls/etc. Tonight I was at the store and grabbed a piece of posterboard to use as a backdrop as well as a few big work lights. Ended up using a smaller set of 3 lights on a stand for lighting, but this marks my first attempt at product photography with decent results. Still need to work on reducing the shadow a little, I've been playing around with the idea of 'floating' the knife on a piece of glass. I'd love to hear tips/tricks/advice from others on this topic, as there's always room for improvement. Didn't do much processing to the pictures with the exception of using a Datacolor Spydercube to set white balance and exposure.
Camera is a Canon XSi with a 100mm f/2.8 macro.
