I got 20 mil clear acetate, does NOT:( show of the reflection well

Thank you chartbin,

I wasn't sure but it looked like it might be a good alernative. Is the same true of plexi or lexan vs. glass?

I've heard of people using plexiglass, but I've never tried it. I get pretty good reflection with regular glass.

Hi pepperoni,

I was looking for an alternative to buying a piece of glass but from what people are saying and my own tests with a small piece of glass it would seem that you can't replicate the same types of reflections with plexi or acetate as you can get with glass.

What types of stores or shops can you go to for scrap sheets of glass?

Hmm.. don't know. I'm just using the glass from a cheap picture frame.

+1 I got a 18x24 picture frame (glass) for $6.99 over the weekend from Michaels. I'm sure Aaron Brothers and others have cheap frames.

Thank you. I have a Michael's right up the block. That's where I always get my foam core. I didn't even think about going to their framing department for the glass.

No problem, they had quite a few that were 50% off.

Here's my first attempt at it. Forgot to take a picture of it before I took it down. It was just a sheet with two work lights and a poster board. I'm going to make a box this week. I need a different lens. Taken with 50mm

Lucky you on the garage/studio and man I wish you lived closer I would love to come over and help you shoot some of your merchandise for ebay. I want to get into product photography. Make sure you post your pictures I know I will be looking for them.

I wish you did too... It's probably going to take weeks to photograph everything by myself...LOL Oh well, it should give me LOTS of practice to get the process down....


All comments & suggestions welcome on my photo posts

While you're there, get one or two yards of black fabric and try some black backgrounds. The glass reflects great on black.

Hi pepperoni,

Do you find that black fabric is better than black seamless? Does it seam to 'soak up' more light?

I wonder what affect a piece of the diamand plate aluminum would have under a car?
Sounds interesting??
