Taking pictures of small packshot products (product photo studio) background and lighting quality are required, mainly to avoid reflect surrounding objects on metal surfaces.
To achieve these pictures itself with the means at hand, I found a very useful information on the net: the gas can! So basically just a can of gasoline slightly translucent white (most are) and make a greater cutting the size of your lens.
The container is placed under a flash powerful enough light source, remote, desk lamp, window, which gives a global and diffused light.
Its object is placed in the can we spend our objective in the hole, the bottom of the container in form reproduced infinitely.
Given the narrowness of the work area such pictures is reserved for a small objects and targets the area of focus which is very short, so generally macro lenses.
For example photos I use a Tamron 90mm macro or 50mm with an extension ring that allows me to reduce the area of focus and gives me / a 1 1 classic.
Of course we can find cans of larger to increase the work area, it will therefore increase the lighting function.
Here are some photos taken in the "lightbox", these photos are only present to show the type of light produced by this system, I would take more time to make some more thoughtful pictures when I have a little time at my disposal. The photos were processed in the excellent and free RawShooter which allows to "develop" its raw files desaturation was applied to photos.
