So a friend recently came over with some serious picture shooting skills (like pro) and we worked on my setup a bit. I might go into the actual setup a bit more later (it involves a lightbox, two daylight lamps and all kinds of cool settings on my cam), but for now this is a comparison of my Tariq mini.
On the left the 'old' shot, on the right the 'new' shot. Both have not been processed after the fact. It is very important to me that I can quickly snap a few shots with minimal editing.
Needless to say I am quite pleased with the results!
