I set up a cheap lighting kit for small to medium subjets. The lighting setup consided of 4 work lamps (with clamps), 5 pieces of foam board, 4 daylight 100 watt bulbs, and 2" masking tape. Below is one of the shots I took since I set it up yesterday. As always, I await to hear your thoughts. Thanks.

I thinks this is a great shot.

My only complaint would be that the pink piggy bank dosent stand out well from the white background

nice work

very clean shot. Nice layout over the frame. Unfortunately the contrast between the piggy and the bcking is starting to get pretty thin

nice work

Very nice composition!! Good for commertial for some new saving account , for a small bank!!

However the piggy is a little overexposed... Thy shooting it again with the same composition , but more accurate lighting.

Regards.

There is not enough detail or contrast in the pig to make this a great shot. You've also got a some distracting light reflections on the pig, which could probably be eliminated by using a light tent or some white fabric to soften the light. There is some stock potential for this shot.

Thanks for the comments. I actually did this shot using the "light box" mentioned here:

I may reshoot this shot soon. The one in the post was with my fuji S5100. I now have a rebel XT and when I get a lens that actually works (my copy of the tamron 17-50 f2.8 was bad) I may reshoot. I'll try adjusting the lights next time to remove the distracting highlight and add contrast to the pig. Thanks for the comments.
