I am finally going to break down and set up a photo studio in our house. I have grown tired of waiting for decent Michigan weather to shoot outside at a time when I'm actually home. Any suggestions of what I should do or should avoid? My initial plan is to build an environment something similar to the one Tom uses -- as he gets consistently terrific results. My camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T3i.

You may have to buy an Audi - as I think that's where Tom takes most of his excellent wrist shots. If you like mine, you'll need a Toyota Tacoma.

:D

A 2006 Nissan Murano works, too. ;)

Give up your secrets Tom. Time of day? Size of sunroof? Parking direction relative to the sun? Joel

:lol: 7:30am in my work parking lot. When the sun is out, it's pretty low in the sky. Sunroof does not contribute since I never have the shade open. Sun, if any, would be coming from the left. A good camera (Canon G9), decent light and a steady hand are required. ;)

Rick,
If you are going to set this up at home rather than in you car :lol: , make sure to have a decent tripod, it makes all the difference, especially for the macro shots.
