Tom,

thanks for showing your studio. I also have such a light cube, but the results with using it were soso….

Your photos of the T-403 and of the Sherwood R (?) are fantastic! What's the trick with the mirror?

Regards

Martin
It's done with a black acrylic riser similar to this.

Hi Tom,

I’m really thankful for your hint regarding the “mirror trick”. Meanwhile, I bought a black acrylic plate and I’m quite satisfied with the results:

(This is a Hilton belt watch to be worn on a belt while playing golf – that’s the reason for the golf ball)


The acrylic “mirror” turned out to be ideal for taking pictures of boxes:
