great tutorial. What about for T-shirts? Is it better to use this setup with a mannequin for display or put white background flat on bottom, lay shirt down, and shoot from the top?

The way you present reminds me of Play School for beginner photographers and it's actually great 🤣
Eli J (1 day ago)
@Luke Ayers No worries dude, I gave this a shot myself a few minutes ago too. I'm just a beginner so if you could give me your opinion on it that'd be awesome :) The focus is a bit off on the nose because it's pretty big :P https://www.instagram.com/p/B0IfTIfH5AK/?igshid=1i6njtyd9elao

Great video! Thanks. Is wax paper the same thing as baking paper?
Random Monkey (1 day ago)
@Luke Ayers it looks like it is different. Baking paper is parchment paper, not the waxed kind. According to Google anyways. Such a good video you created. Im getting ready to post a few items on eBay and this knowledge helps out tremendously.
Luke Ayers (1 day ago)
I believe so, yes

GOLDSMITHEXILE 2016 (1 month ago)
I remember seeing some absolutely fantastic (and large) portraits in a show at the ICA in London in the early 80's. The artist used a huge version of this like a white photo booth made of polystyrene sheets. It was a portable thing and he went to places like Moroco and Tunisia to photograph people. I'd love to study their work again, but sadly cannot remember their name
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Ah yes. I love stuff like that. It's all the same, just scaled to different sizes

Was looking into getting one of those plastic portable light studio things but was put off by the holes in the back once set up, then I came across this video and, well now I dont need to by one at all and am not restricted to size. brilliant video thank you so much for sharing. just one question @ 6:10 mins:- "manually set the exposure to stay the same" ...as what? thx
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
@Sean Ditch No worries, buddy!
Sean Ditch (1 month ago)
@Luke Ayers excellent cheers Luke👍👍
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
@Sean Ditch No, make sure flash is off. You want the light to come from the lamp not the camera
Sean Ditch (1 month ago)
@Luke Ayers Would that switch be the auto flash..? I have an s6 edge android phone.
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Thanks a lot, mate. That's great. In simple words, you should let your camera adjust to whatever brightness it likes and then flick whatever switch is on the phone or camera which will stop it from changing the brightness as you start taking photos.

I don't have a lamp like yours, and the clip light I tried cast dark shadows that the white box did not diminish. Will you be able to make another suggestion please for a light?
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
@Gracie Dragonfly Ok. Just get a different light. Get something more similar to what I'm using the video.
Gracie Dragonfly (1 month ago)
@Luke Ayers Good Morning and thank you for answering. Extra layer makes pitcher too dark and shadow still there. Using Canon Rebel T3i manual 4oo ISO auto.This is goose neck lamp and no access to bulb.
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Use more layers of baking paper to soften the light more

so how do i set exposeure to stay the same on a canon camera and are you shooting regular or macro
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Regular and macro make no difference to what im saying here and arent anything different than how close you are to the subject. Put your canon camera into manual mode "M". Check the instruction manual for more info

Great video. I make rings and just started my social media about a month or so ago now and I'm going to implement these tips immediately bcoz altho I like takin photos Iam no expert lol! Silver is so hard to photograph so I'm hoping some defused lighting and a reflector will help me out to get some great shots.. Awesome video mate and thank u very much for those tips ✌
Luke Ayers (1 month ago)
Haha, sounds like fun!
ken dalton (1 month ago)
Luke Ayers oh I definitely would make a visit of a few places up north, Liverpool, and Newcastle (if u are brave) haha u prob won't understand their accent at all! 😂 and don't forget Scotland of course if u get a chance!.

Marcella Jaynes (1 month ago)
Dude! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Like you said- You are supposed to have a light on each opposite side to eliminate any shadows. A light filter is really cheap. I’m not messing w a bunch of things. You’re wasting a lot of time there. U can always just place a sheet in front of it. Hang it on something tall. I bought $8 clothing racks at IKEA & got $2 sheets from the thrift. Perfect!
