Another lighting test.

 

400mm lens.

 

More of a study to get the light you see Nikon publish in a brochure.

 

I am happy with this test result.

 

Lesson learned:  Control DUST!  Hard to remove with just a hand pump blower.

Now, do it black on black, like Nikon does it. 😎

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

​Film: That tangible image that you can see and hold.

Mark,

 

You may find this link helpful.

 

This is the WHITE PAPER I am using!  A cheap roll of white banner paper found at Walmart.

 

Perfect!

Nice shot, Art.  Shooting on black, as Dennis suggests, would be taking your work to the next level.  :)

 

Also, many thanks for the link.  Looks like the local stores have it in stock too.  When I became interested in off-camera lighting, who would ever have thought that my interest would take me to stores like Rona, Home Depot, JYSK and Walmart?  :lol:

Don't forget Canadian Tire!! :lol:

 

I got my Heavy Duty clips from them. A big bag, all shapes and sizes... I think they were $20.

 

That paper is a perfect backdrop roll for small items.  It is an excellent white.
