Default First shot with new lights...

I received my new (used) softbox studio lights yesterday and riged up a temporary set up to try them out. Grey backdrop, 1000 watt light on left, 500 watt on right. butterfly setup with the camera flash for fill.

I wanted something that would work for some of the gear I want to sell on ebay and I think this will work OK.
Any suggestions on how I can improve are greatly appreciated.

Good shot. Don't think you could do much to improve...you got very little shadow. it is clear to see the lettering on the lens. Think you got a good set up. I like the background.

Lighting appears to have worked quite well on this one - plenty of detail and not at all harsh.

Looks fine, GW. Can't wait to see more uses of them.

Thank you, guys.
This was the last in a series of practice shots. They were coming out nice but, seemed a bit overexposed. I finally went down to f:22 and 1/180sec then lightened up the background in PP.

Its amazing what a 1000watt light @3ft from the product can do!

The end result looks good GW. But I wouldn't want to have to pay the electric bill!

Considering how lousy lots of ebay pictures are (still amazes me how some people selling lenses and more expensive photo gear can post such awful pictures!) these are incredible. You can definitely see all you need to see about the lens.

LOL. I assure you, I only have them on for a very limited time!
