i'd love to shoot raw except for the fact that my 1st generation sony camera only accept compactflash so with the amount of shit i take i usually fill up the whole card in like an hour
A $40 16gb CF card will hold about 500 shots with RAW + JPG at max settings - in a 5D2.
I'm sure you can a find reasonably priced CF card large enough for your purposes.
I want to shoot raw but i can't afford photoshop and i dont think GIMP process's them :(
would it be daft of me to suggest why not just pirate it, buy it when you can afford it

That is the beauty of open source. Every one who is interested in the project can participate and help make software available for everyone instead of just big company who mostly sell their software.
I'll be honest, i thought you were linking me to a torrent site hahaha
I tried my hand at studio-ish shots, the problem is I don't have a studio or a big space where to put a background so I just removed some crap from a wall in my room and framed the shots to avoid getting the ground or other rubbish in.
They are all handheld and lit only by ambient light, which is not your typical light bulb hanging from the ceiling, I have a huge white neon pointed to the ceiling that bounces light all over so basically my room is a giant softbox.
(the shot with the whole chair would have been much better if I did it with a telephoto to compress it more and avoid showing the opposite arm rest but due to space constraints a 50mm was the longest I could go with and I shot most of them from down up to avoid getting the floor in the shot)

Sorry for the dump.
They look nice!
Great product photos, paid you good?
Beside the unnecessary angles, good stuff. Home studio?
My room (where I sleep and work) is quite messy so I just shoved all the stuff from the least messy side behind the camera and snapped away.
For the lighting I just used ambient light, I changed a few years ago from your bog standard single light bulb hanging from the ceiling to a big neon which I placed over my wardrobe pointing to the ceiling on which it bounces off.
It's nearly as if I had a light the size of my ceiling basically so thanks to that my room is evenly lit and has no harsh shadows which helps on the rare occasions when I shoot something inside it.
I can take a shot of my room if you are curious to see how it is setup.
Thanks! I also got this panorama (my ocd brain didn't let me put it in the same post with the other pics)
That entire post up there is "how to do macros right"
I got a roll from my Lomo LC-A developed, and I'm going to spread the good ones over multiple posts, rather than one big dump.
