Photography Tip of the Week:

    • Use natural light
    • Consider using a Lightbox for smaller items
    • Use tilted poster board and reflectors for larger items
    • Be sure to check your exposure settings and use the exposure compensation setting to make sure your images are getting exposed enough.
