I agree with you. The parts that aren't washed out look nice and crisp though.Jazz wrote:The white is just too overpowering. Obviously, it's just me. Don't worry about it. Wouter doesn't take bad pics.
Well, I do 'worry' about it. That is why I post a test, to get feedback on aspects I might have overlooked. I appreciate your comments as it challenges me to try and make the images come out better. Mind you, I'm a self taught amateur who is looking for a single set-up solution to quickly process a few hundred images...Jazz wrote:The white is just too overpowering. Obviously, it's just me.

It was mainly a matter of paying attention to the little shadows when taking the photo, thanks for checking it out.Liquid Cobra wrote:I'm not sure what changes you made but the washed out look is gone. Nice! Seriously psyched for your Amsterdam thread. Thanks!
Yep, I tried a lot of things, but it seems that flat ground s110v is a real mother to shoot in my current set-up. But this pic did result in a fine shadow line to mark the spine against the background, so I went with it. I had a similar problem last year with some concept models that are basically custom knives. The fine hand polish of a custom blade can be so fine, that my previous camera sometimes had trouble to focus on it - the camera just couldn't seem to 'grab on' to the blade to fine focus it. I can do it manually now if I have too.swigert wrote:Looks great. The military really pops better now. Only one is the third pic of the s110v pm2. The blade is blending Into the white background a little.
That's indeed what I do, and I also include all the measurements we can take off a prototype and I try to include a shot of the proto in hand.Donut wrote:He uses a trinket, you figure out how big it is by seeing it next to a knife you know, then you can get an idea of the scale of the rest of the objects.

Thank you for sharing.
