Made a side light shot and adjusted the darkness on the sides to hide the visible background using Lightroom’s graduated filter in the develop module. I also added my favorite motto.
I raised my hat to all those who do post processing work on photos. At times people criticize your work that it is overly done or not so professional and the like. My post processing arsenal is only made of Lightroom 3.6 and free software Paint.net. I just did a single photo to clean out the rest of the background and really it takes time and effort just to have it really nice and done before making another use of the image.
Check out one of my self-portrait photo which I did post process first before doing some other photo editing tricks.

My old “kabalens”, Ormil Go, invited me to the 2014 Manila Auto Salon last November 22, 2014 at the SMX Mall of Asia in Pasay City. It so happen that I am still testing the Canon 70D.
The Canon 70D is believe to be one of the best mid-range camera for video and Canon is regarded as the better brand of DSLR camera for taking videos. Also besides the professional look of the Canon 70D it is packed with 20megapixel, 7pfs, and the Dual AF. So besides the video test I did of course I took pictures of the cars and the models in the car show. Check them out below:
Most product photographers use tools to achieve the best image for a product and one of those is called light tent. Basically it is a box that softens harsh light all around the product giving that clean infinite white background look.
Being on a budget I decided to create my own DIY light tent using a discarded box and some home tools that I usually use on a day-to-day basis. Below is the DIY light tent I made to help me in my product photography.
Below are some before and after processing images of sample products using DIY light tent. Photos were taken using a Canon 70D and Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens. Post processing is done using Paint.net
