I was fishing for some pointers when it comes to photographing props.
I have a pretty decent camera but run into the issues of the flash blowing out painted props I try to photograph for WIPs and to show others. I can correct a lot of issues in photoshop, but one of the first rules of this is if you shoot it right to begin with, there's no need to spend hours touching up something.
I took photography in college but that was 10+ years ago.
I guess I'm looking for generic tips. Should I be shooting in natural light with no flash and a tripod? Ive considered one of those $100 white/collapsable photo tent/booth things where you can put lights on the sides and the tent difuses the lighting etc.
Any input would be appreciated.
