Default Light box

My first attempts at using a light box. Translucent sides with paper backdrop. I opted for a long lens instead of a short one in hopes of getting more of the can into the photo. Am I on the right track?

Camera Canon EOS REBEL T3i
Exposure 0.005 sec (1/200)
Aperture f/9.0
Focal Length 200 mm
ISO Speed 100

... and a bit more seriously

yes you are on the right track using a long lens rather than a short lens as you have more image control over perspective
Your lighting looks okay, not shadowless [good] but pretty even and showing just a tad of shadow so it has a good feel about it

I used natural light when testing it with the Piels can (in-laws found it in their garage) but think I'll get some natural light bulbs and fixtures so I can vary the lighting. I figure the light on one side a little closer to the front of the box and the other light towards the back a little bit might help promote a sense of depth.

Thanks for checking it out, Ozzie.
