Rice Cracker Infinity-Screen Experiment:

Simple pics today: - a stack of five tamari-seaweed brown-rice crackers and a set of three glasses. These were taken about six months ago and were among my first attempts at learning studio lighting techniques using an 'infinity screen' - which in this case was a curved piece of white PVC sheeting taped to a metal laundry-basket frame, so that the background behind the objects is smooth and white without the intrusion of any angles, edges or corners.

Here's some of the sites that were helpful when I was learning about studio lighting:

Digital Photography School
Jayden's Steamy Kitchen
David Kilpatrick at Photoclub Alpha
Kaylins Kitchen
Dragon Image - where I bought a kit of 3 soft-box lights, in Artarmon, Sydney.

Thanks for the tip about the infinity screen. I will have to give it a go. Great photos too!

I had a look at your other blogs and saw that you practice Chinese medicine! Wow! It is not very common to see an Aussie doing Chinese medicine! My retired dad is studying Chinese medicine, but mostly as something to keep him occupied. Everytime I see him though, he makes me stick out my tongue!!
