Improve your table-top photography dramatically, at almost no cost, by modifying a cheap, readily available plastic bucket.
Step 1: On-camera flash (strobe)
This is what most on-camera or built-in flash (strobe lighting) will produce. It doesn't show the product in a good light, literally. You can't see what this little ornament is really made of.
Mail order specialists and online trading experts all agree: good pictures boost sales.
You can improve your own photos of small items quickly and easily, using exactly the same principles as professional photographers, but you don’t have to invest in an expensive light tent to do it.
Step 2: Find a suitable bucket
Take an ordinary, cheap household plastic bucket, as near to white in colour as you can find. The thinner the better.
Mine cost one pound in England. You should be abe to buy one for a Euro, or a Dollar, elsewhere.
Step 3: Cutaway
Cut out a smooth, gentle curve to make the front opening. This is what you will be shooting through.
I used scissors: the plastic was very soft.
