    I came across this article on this morning and since it
    was cold and rainy outside, I figured I'd give it a shot.

    After a quick trip to the Hobby Lobby and Home Depot I managed to
    build the whole shebang for less than 10 bucks.

    Here is my first effort at product photography:

    Pretty cool, huh? Now I just need to look around the house for stuff
    to sell on EBAY.

    That set-up works for horizontal shots, but not for objects that must
    be shot vertically. I made a light box from a opaque lampshade by
    cutting out the wire at the top opening. The camera shoots straight
    down, and the lights are positioned at the side.

    If you want a real test of your skills, try shooting some sterling a spoon. The spoon bowl reflects the lens. I've
    photographed quite a bit of sterling silver flatware and managed some
    good shots, but it always takes a bit of Photoshopping to get rid of
    that lens reflection.

    Don't bother, Helen. I'll chip-in for you:
    Very sharp and exposure is spot on. You always seem to capture the
    essence of the subject and with attitude, whether it be a household
    pet, the street preacher on 8th and Broad, or in this case a
    walkabout phone. This is the kind of stuff National Geographic
    looks for. Excellent work!
