It seems that web-based instruments retailers are finally understanding the power of pro-quality pictures to increase their business. The first website I knew to make pro-quality pictures of basses was Bunnybass, now there are some nice-looking pictures on Thegrooveshoppe, Gguitars, and Sadowsky to name a few... I would like to discuss photography, software techniques, and gear. Basically, What is needed to make beautiful pictures like these? Do you need only natural lighting or more sources of light? Which settings on the camera? How do you do a black background in photoshop? Sorry if this has been posted before but I've done a search and found few topics about photography. If you know a good photography forum, please send links... PS: I wasn't sure if I had to post this in "off-topic" or "miscellaneous".
