    All about the lighting man. Halogen recessed lighting makes for good illumination and shadows. Your profile pic is great, you got a good subject to work with;)

    Besides Lighting, experiement with how you angle your camera. Adjust your lens so you can make things smaller, leaner, Bigger...unless youre already big where it counts, haha!
    And when youre done, show us the results! icon_wink.gif

    Connect your camera to a TV set and use the TV set as the viewfinder. That makes it easier to experiment with different positions and different lighting.

    It is best to put the camera on a tripod and use a remote control to adjust the zoom and control the shutter.

    The lighting is critically important. Fluorescent lighting with a CRI > 90 really helps. Selecting the right color temperature also helps. It's best to have the light come from at least two different positions.

    Even with the above set-up, it helps to take many shots. You can look at the results on the TV set or transfer them to your computer for examination. Crop as necessary.
