I tried making this "light box
" in this tutorial, but it didn't work very well at all. I also found this tutorial
, but I'm hesitant to put this much effort into anything since the last one was such a bummer. I think I just needed the removeable flash. Do you think a reflector would help in this situation? How would I do it? TIA!
you can go with eather one - reflector would work great...place your items by the window and get the reflector and main it so you can see the most light on your object, or you can use exturnal flash and point it to the cieling or white wall so the light can bounce against that right on your subject..
