@arian29 ...truth is in 1st one windows logo is not in focus and in 2nd samsungs logo is not in focus :( I tried many times but when I increase f-no to more than f10 it becomes very dark ...flash cant be used coz of reflection

^^aren't you supposed to have lower f number to get focus on whole thing without any blurring ?

lower f number (stops) ull get point focus.. like f1.8 etc.. larger f stops, you'll get wide focus (more stuff in focus) like f5.6 etc

@Faun If I use lower f-no like f4 or f2.8 I will get lesser area in focus ....but If i use bigger f-nos like f11, f14 I will have more area in focus..

Ok I tried with my logo and came to conclusion that if the page is white I have to use the black bar at the bottom...the logo is not looking good in full black
but if background is colored then I can use the white transparent one

thanks for the quick brush up guys :)

Keeping the focal length lower will help with deep DOF too.

@shreeharsha nice try but u have to learn composition slowly :)

@arian ur shots r fine but u should see what should be the actual goal of product photography...if u have checked ur mobile in gsmarena.com u must have seen this image

gsmarena_001.jpg


Try to move towards this...think how the lightning should be, background, settings etc :)

And yes we can not remove the shadow under the product coz we do not have the light under the subject..if u want to remove the shadow u need a plain glass base, a light under it and a white sheet over the glass. keep subject over it and it wont have a shadow :)

@harsha
trick for the 3rd shot ?
For this shot, no tricks involved, I just kept the camera in Sunset mode and all was taken care automatically.

But usually what I do is, switch to spot metering and reduce the exposure to minimum to achieve the same effect with my Nikon S9100. But it was never this good.

@shreeharsha nice try but u have to learn composition slowly :)
Will do, but need corrections from fellow members to point out the sore things in the pic ;)

@Sujoy
Thank you :)

Even I didn't like my friends getting into the frame, but they won't budge, they were asking me to take their snaps and I was worried about the time frame, I didn't want to miss the sunrise so I had to pretend that I was taking their snaps too shuffling between both :p

Managed this finally on that day, I think I posted this earlier, re-posting it again :D

@sriharsha this one is also superb...is it sunrise??

No I didnt ment that ur friends r there so I didnt like the pic but there is something wrong with post processing in that pic....just check 3rd and 4th pic....in 4th pic those guys r looking sharp but in 3rd its seems they r out of focus ...maybe its just me :)
