picnic coolers
Had to do a shoot for a customer who required a picture of sweets. In USA you call them candies. A perfect job for a light box only I don't have one, but I did have a picnic cooler that had a matt white plastic liner. I layed the sweets out on a tray on the bottom, placed one flash inside and another attached via cable to the camera. First shot perfect.
Hope this helps.:)

Hey pop,

Any shots of the lollies inside the esky that you can share? or a setup shot?

Sounds like an interesting approach and good work around.

G'day mate;
Not sure about the pic. It was done around the middle of last year.
The lollies ( M&M's ) were placed into one of those small chinese food containers. I have a Canon 1dsmk2 and 2 X 580EX flash units and as I said it was a simple matter of using ETTL to fire them. I had to use a cable from the camera or the flash would have fired into the floor outside the ESKEY. Lens used was a Canon 24-70L
We going to have coffee at Maccas, Circular Quay when you get back?:cheesy:
