Skate Shoes

Two lightbox/product style shots. Shot RAW, converted in Lightroom and processed in Paint.NET. I know they are definitely not the cleanest nor the most attractive subjects, but apart from that, let me know what you guys think.

#1 C1RCA Shoes


#2 eS Shoes

the 1st seems better exposed, but other than that, it seems very much like a product catalog picture...

You're right. The lighting was the onboard flash, and then I did a bit of post processing in Paint.NET to selectively brighten the background whilst leaving the subject relatively untouched

Yeah, I know, but with assignments to do and exams looming, I just needed an excuse to prepare for neither!

I like the second shot better. Don't know why, but the lighting in the first one almost seems.. fake.

I have taken some static type shots similar to this without a lightbox. I used my 500ftz bounced off of a 4ft circular diffuser about 3 ft above the subject. You can play with the angle of the flash and diffuser to get the light just right. It does a pretty good job of softening the light on the subject.
