G'day mate

Without taking away from any of the excellent comments above, -if- you want to get into commercial or semi-commercial product photography you will need [if fact must] have enough depth-of-field to cover the product

You will not achieve this with a conventional camera lens - you will need a tilt-n-shift lens, and then discover its best usage

From my [years ago] use of tilt 'n shift equipment, you can triple the amount of DoF via correct use of the lens - and from your first exampes, the DoF is so inadequate that no advertiser will even give your images a second look. The latter set of images are 'just' there with DoF but to my eye it's "only just there" and you have a long way to go

I hope this helps a bit
