Thanks for all of the feedback folks, I appreciate it.

You picked a tough assignment for yourself. Good on you. Keep posting. Another way to get a large light source is to shoot through a large diffuser or white cloth. Tall and narrow. Say 36"x10". If you have a shoot-through umbrella you could mask it off.

Black cards soak up light. Mirrors are extremely efficient reflectors. White cards and grey cards can all help.

Quick setup in my bedroom last night. The homemade cat perch made for a nice base to elevate the guitar.

Love these!
You could burn down the specular highlight off the tips of the tuning pegs. They're a bit bright.

First real attempt at any sort of of product photography, wish I could have found my other flash foot so that I could have stood my yongnuo up. I also think I should have turned the bottle a little more to the left.

Canon 6D + 85mm F1.8 and bare 430EX + YN565EX on the table

Ha, I could make an attempt of it if there is any interest. I have plenty of them on the horses.

Yeah, they're a bit hot. I did Lightroom edits on my phone for these so I didn't catch them.

Diffusion is a vital lighting technique, and really needs more than those meagre 20"x24" sheets (I did buy the Rosco diffusion sampler set). I later invested in a 100' roll of Tough Rolux, and it's worth every penny. For the toe-dippers, the cheaper alternative is a frosted shower curtain—no joke!

Just simple setup. But I just tried the Westcott dual socket magic arm on a boom arm :)

Im certainly no expert at this set up lark, in fact I compare flash photography as somewhat of a black art and studio flash is just plain voodoo
But here is pretty much my first foray into setting something up with a certain result in mind

All advice and/or criticism is greatly accepted
