Shooting Small with a BIG Impact.
If you’re selling something on Ebay or Craigslist, the pictures can be the difference between someone passing through or stopping for a longer look.
The normal process for shooting these types of pictures is to setup a white or black sweep on a table, add some lighting on the sides, dial in your exposure and Bingo Bango you have a salable item in queue. It works. And if your shooting pictures of baby grand pianos or a Honda CB750 this is still an appropriate method. However, most items posted for sale online are smaller than the family dog. For those items you will want to use a light tent. And the best news is that it is the EASIEST shooting scenario you have ever seen. A light tent will drastically increase the quality of your product images.
If you have a bright, sunny day, a light tent on its own can be a powerful aid to making better pictures. Unfortunately, I don’t live in a tropical climate with eternal sunshine so adding lighting is a must for me. In its simplest form, a light tent kit with constant lights is a valuable tool. This kit is excellent for small subjects but generally requires the use of a tripod.
