| Created a small DIY product photography studio for my prints [message #29696] Sat, 25 June 2011 19:36 UTC
Anticipating quite a few prints in the next few weeks I thought it time for a somewhat more dedicated setup to photograph them to show them here and on my new site to come (statyou.com, more on that in the future) |
Just bought 2 fluorescent desk lamps and a window shade (white on one side and black on the other, dual use!)
And it actually works! I like the fluorescent light since it keeps the colors clean. I use the same lights in my scan studio since it gives more true to live textures. In this case I also use a few existing halogen lights on a dimmer overhead so I can add a hint of warmth back in.
Could Shapeways not do something similar?
One thing I dislike somewhat in the gallery is the hodgepodge of thumbnails. some are the default preview, others are home made pics. All different. Would it be feasible to make a standard pic after printing and automatically add those to your account. You then could chose to use it or substitute it for your own. In my opinion this would add a extra level of quality to the site. I have no clue how the printing is done. If all the printers are in one or 2 facilities or that most are outsourced which would make this a bit harder. But just a thought!
