Ronnie, That is an amazing photo! Thumbs up

I recently read an article here on Cubits about the use of lightboxes. As I have some things that I want to shoot for the upcoming ecommerce venture here at Cubits that may benefit from this technique, I'd be very interested in hearing of everyone's experiences in this area.

Thanks Storm Smiling

That's some interesting info there. I've never used that technique as most of my photos are nature oriented. It really does enhance the pictures.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Ronnie, mostly it is the glare from shiny objects that concerns me and I see this as a possible solution.

I've seen nice ones on Sky Mall for about $99, if you don't want to take the chance with a box. Although with enough work, the box should be just as good.

I have not had experience with this either. Like Ronnie, I do most of my work outdoors, and I am a big advocate of natural light. I know some photographers that get similar result by putting a diffuser over their flash. The principle is to diffuse the light striking the object in question, and avoid the glare. This lightbox is an excellent idea for small objects and static macro work!
Instead of running after perfection, why not simply walk in faith?

Thanks, gals! Sheryl if SkyMall is selling them for $99, that means you can find them elsewhere for about $60. I'm going to go there and look at them. Thanks for the tip. I hate having something else to store, so maybe a box would be good.

Karen did you take those neat prismatic shots of glass with natural light? They are so cool.

I took those shots on top of my stove under the stove light!

I'm very technical that way!

This one was taken looking at the computer monitor!

I had titled it "Through a glass darkly"

Cool I tip my hat to you.

Karen, I was hoping that you would do a couple of threads in this forum on some of your work other than wildlife. Big Grin

Does anyone have any fall shots to show off yet? So far I only have last years - it's still a little warm for our leaf-change. Barb has put some nice ones up on the beginning of new threads.

Oh, and I have some mums that I wanted to post - gotta get them off of my camera first, lol....

Everything here looks awful. The tree foliage went straight to brown and fell off.
Trees are half bare already. More rain today too. I don't mind - we need more.

Not yet Sheryl. Last year we went from green to bare on a lot of trees too. It hasn't been cool enough for most of the leaves to start turning yet. This was an endless summer.

Is this a good thread to post pictures on or should we start another one?
