So, I took up some advice on using a pillow sheet and placing the flash behind, except I used a tshirt instead. And I just had some fun with it, tweaking the location and angle. So here's a few test shots that once I start reviewing doesn't seem too great due to shadows and the transition of color. T-shirt might have been too thick or flash too close.
My daily vitamins I started taking while working outs. Smells horrible, takes a cup of water to swallow.
Was my first shot, trying to get a feel for shadows and lighting with something simple. Didn't look as bad when I was reviewing it.
Totally didn't come out as expected, had opened up the aperture and still got some major blurring, that and I didn't even bother to wipe them down for dust and fingerprints.
Had these lying on my desk after charging for my flash and figured I could shoot them to see if they gave some cool shadows but didn't come out as clean as I'd hope. Probably need to put the light closer and point it down for the effect I was looking for.
I'll get better at this eventually, love these types because I can arrange them however I want and have all the time to decide what to shoot.

Want to take this time to show you a little about this Light Box I was talking about.
But first there's this guy, he's been with me for years. Been abused in the heat sitting in my car for a couple years. Sat in pieces in my closet till I found all of him. Now he usually sits on my server protecting it from failing or other invaders.
Some comparison shot so you can get a scale of how big he actually is. That's a quarter, and that's the origami I folded up on Monday. He's tiny, but extremely durable as you can probably see from his wear in the first photo.

Thanks for all the support. As I get more used to my schedule and plan accordingly, I'll have more time to adventure out and get some pics of the area and maybe learn some photoshop skills. Plan to keep spending at least 1-2 hours a day viewing and commenting on several blogs daily. Have a great week, I know I'm having one now.
