Another try on product photography
The Good News!
After several weeks of research, reading reviews and more than a month of waiting I finally received my very 1st flashgun, My very own Yongnuo YN -460.
After opening the brown postal envelope, the first thing that I noticed is the Nikon-ish box that the flashgun was in. Honestly, I was quite impressed with the box alone. I did not expect to receive it in a very presentable packaging. I was actually expecting a matte brown cheap box since I got the item for a very low price. The next thing that impressed me is when I opened the box. A velvet-like pouch bag was covering the flash itself. Again, I did not expect this one. Then after opening the pouch bag, the flash itself was again wrapped with a very thick plastic covering.
The Yongnuo YN -460‘s front side looked very similar to the Nikon SB-600. At the back you can see 1 button for switching the flash on and off, a button for changing the operating mode to Manual, Slave 1 & Slave 2, and a button for increasing and decreasing the flash power. You can also find here the light indicators or Idiot Lights as others call it which indicate which mode you are on, flash power and a light that changes from red to green to indicate that the flash is ready to fire.
Whats in the box?
Here I would like to share my 1st ever attempt on product photography. This shot was inspired be the work of Steve Bennett’s work which I have been following for the past months.
What do you guys think? good enough for a 1st try?

Here I would like to share a small project that I have been working on the past few days. It’s my very own DIY product photography setup inspired by Steve Bennett’s work. Here is a list of that I used for the setup.
