It occurs to me that y'all might be interested in my setup for some of the photos so here's one that I didn't post but I'll be using it on Etsy soon. There are other photographers here and you guys will enjoy this and probably be able to pick holes in my setup but it works ok for me. When my son moved out a couple of months ago we set his old room up as a studio setting, albeit a low budget and simple one, but I can take an item in there, place it on the table, turn the lights on and have good control over lighting for just about any item. Those of you that do photography may see this often but if you're not into photography this may be new to you.
For the Lazy Susan I decided to take one shot with it set on our table so I moved the lights to the dining area - that's what I'll show you below. Ignore the vacuum cleaner, guitar, and junk beside the table - temporary storage while we're cleaning out a spot elsewhere - what can I say... it's a lived in house! LOL!
Here's the shot straight off the camera, no post editing - not bad but could use some help -
Here's the final shot -
And here's the setup for the shot above -
For the photographers the camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, Leica lens, settings are ISO 100, f 2.8, 1/4 second, -0.33 eV, RAW 4000 x 3000 x 48b. The editor is ACDSee Ultimate and tools used were 20% dehaze, auto contrast and color 15%, exposure moved another -0.15 eV, and fill light bumped a few points, then resized to 1080 x 810 and saved as a jpg file.
