Default Need Advice please

Is product tent photography difficult to learn? I was thinking of doing this in addition to the 3d computer renderings I do for my clients. This would give them an affordable alternative to 3d modeling. What does one charge for this? Are there any sites that specialize in product photography? What tent and lights should I get to start out? Here is a link to my site so you can get an idea of what I do with 3D.http://www.delucaimagingstudio.com. I surely wouldn't use the photo end for large products, but I can see it for small to medium size objects. Any thoughts on how I can break into this would be great. I think I have the photography experience I need, along with my K7, and assorted lenses, I should be able to do this.

How is it that your email is [email protected]?

It's just a hot link to the address. Why?

I see. Nothing important. Just a little bit confussing.

Good point. I should probably change it.

You have three clasic ways to mention your email:

1. Use a direct link icon: envelope, etc.
2. Use your website email: [email protected] and redirect it to your comsat.net.
3. Put the real comcast.net email.

I like your work. Pretty interesting.

If you've got some time, take a sheet and a cardboard box, cut out the sides of the box so it makes a frame and drape the sheet over it. Put a couple of table lamps on either side, on the outside of the sheet (perhaps 3 - one for either top or back lighting), put something inside and play around with the lights. Add a piece of Plexiglass on the bottom over whatever you use for a base to add a bit of reflection. That costs you nothing and you can get an idea of what's involved for product photography. I've thought about doing just that, for the experience, since I personally find anything that falls into this category about as hard as I do setting up still-life shots - I get frustrated very quickly.
