The camera doesn't really matter that much. With product photography it is all about the lighting and the materials you use to project and/or reflect that light onto your products. The more control you have over the lighting, the more you can make the products and background appear the way you wish. For various scenarios and different products the ideal ...

A useful additional feature a camera can have for product photography is tethered shooting. That means you can see a preview of the image on an external monitor and also click the shutter release remotely. Sometimes this works by connecting a USB cable, sometimes a wireless connection can be established. This allows to position the camera in arbitrary ...

Do I really need a DSLR camera for this? No. The smaller the objects you want to photograph get, the more difficult it is sometimes to use a dSLR, because of the more expensive lens requirements that go along with a bigger sensor to get close enough to frame. In addition, the larger sensors on dSLRs will actually create a thinner DoF when working in ...

Hmm. B&H has quite a few of these, made by B+W, Heliopan, Singh-Ray, and others, notably, Hoya and Hitech. Those brands are all very good (especially their higher end filters, but really, they all are very good), and all have 95mm CPL filter models around the $200-400 US price point. The B+W you mentioned will work fine; personally, if I was going to ...

First, it depends on the camera you want to buy because the sd speed is related to the sd slot. The same you have to do with your pc, because some PCs have sd reader on USB 2.0, with a max speed of 50 MBps. I suggest a Lexar Professional 1000x 16 GB card, it will satisfy all of your needs.

Different focal lengths will give you more or less working room. The longer the focal length, the further you can be from your subject. Another alternative is to use old enlarger lenses, with an appropriate step up ring to get to M42 size. They actually work extremely well for macro photography, and they have no focusing helicoid, so they are made for a ...

I found a similar question already answered about memory cards for the same type of camera (Canon 500D): What type and capacity of memory card is supported by Canon 500D? One thing I would suggest is, if you plan to get for example one 32GB card - get two 16GB cards instead. Memory cards are usualy reliable but when you are out shooting it is better to have ...

First off, welcome to the club! Let me get to my answer and than I'll back up my belief on why. What SD card to buy? The card with the largest amount of MB's per second (MB/s). The "read and write" speed is the most important factor in my book! Why? We like to be able to capture, store data quickly to be ready for the next image. Also being able to ...

Lots of different radio triggers work with lots of different brands of flash. Yes, you can mix'n'match flash brands (see: What should I look for in a wireless flash trigger for a home studio?), but you may have to give up some/all additional flash features aside from firing in sync. Basically, you just need triggers that can communicate properly between ...

I'm looking for a lens for fashion street photography which covers all the body in the pic. Whether or not you'll get as much coverage as you want depends entirely on your working distance and framing choices. Nobody can absolutely tell you what focal length to use, because everybody tends to frame differently and to have varying degrees of comfort in ...

The 35 mm will include more background. Decide if you prefer more context in the image or more isolation. There will be a bit more distortion with the wider lens. It will be more apparent in head shots than full body shots though. Otherwise, 35mm and 50mm are close and it is a matter of personal style and preference. Also, when you buy a lens, think about ...

Do you recommend the Nikon 50mm 1.8d or Nikon 35mm f / 1.8G for my D3300 camera body? Get the 35mm. Assuming "fashion street photography" means that you're relatively close to your subject, the wider lens will do a better job covering a person-sized subject. The 50mm would work too, but you'll need to stand farther away. Using this dimensional field of ...
