Shot in a light tent, with XTi & 50mm 1.8, I'm not sure, if I prefer the black or the white background.

I think the black allows for much more detail and contrast. Nicely done.

Agreed on the black background. The subjects stand out much better!

I agree, it does make for a fake mood, but is fun to do, and they sell quite well ;)

I understand, they're not my idea of art, to hang on the wall either, but they do well in calendars and a few businesses have used them for their ads etc...
