In an effort to broaden my skillset, I invested in a studio light tent bought on eBay, to capture product images. I have played around with this tent using the white, black and green backgrounds that came with the tent.

I have placed the tent in my backyard using available natural light and I have also placed it near a large window on the south side of the house. At this time of the year when the sun in low in the “southern” sky, there is an abundance of light in the afternoon to light my tent.

On New Year’s eve I was playing around with a soda can and this bottle. The can had more reflections than I cared to see. The Ting grapefruit drink bottle was much easier to photograph. After many tries with different lens and varying angles, I thought the image below was the best of the bunch.

This images was captured with my Canon EOS 7D camera and Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L lens set at 60mm. Here are the other relevant settings:

Shooting Mode: Aperture-Priority AE
Shutter Speed: 1/20
Aperture Value: 4.0
Metering Mode: Center-Weighted Average Metering
ISO Speed: 200
Image Size: 3888×2592 pixels

The camera and lens were supported on a Bogen tripod and I used the self-timer to ensure maximum sharpness.
