I really like your pens and I like the way you present them. I would like to get clear pics like that. What do you use to photograph your pens to get suck a clear shot of the grain?

I use a Nikon D70 with a Sigma 50mm F2.8 macro lens, lighting is 3
27 watt photo correct CFLs in 8" reflectors. For a pen shooting distance is about 18". Camera is set on full manual and exposure is set using a photo gray card.

You should be able to get good results with most any decent camera. Proper lighting and practice.

Here is a pic of my set up.

Thanks

I will need to invest in some CFL's and reflectors. Look better than trying to shoot on top of my pool table. So I guess with he CFL's I will not need to place a cloth in front of the lights.

Not only are you a talented turner, you're also quite the photographer -- a very talented gentleman. Thanks for showing/telling us how it's done.
