    DUST IS THE ENGMY!!!!! Also note that my 24-70 is out of alignment, so if the left edge is blurry, that is why. It's going back to Nikon soon.

    Very nice, Sam! Great shots!

    I have a Giottos portable light tent that I haven't used in awhile. I use my Elinchrome studio strobes as the light source on the sides and/or top of the light tent. A couple of samples:

    It comes in very handy when you want to sell gear. :)

    Those are some outstanding results, Sam and Mark!

    My wife has been selling a lot of stuff on Ebay lately. She just uses her phone to take pictures of her items. Maybe I can get her to use some of her earnings to spring for a setup for me. ;)
