Need some feedback on test photos
Since I deal with a lot of laptops, I really need to set up a workstation just for laptop photos. In this example I used my laptop and booted into the BIOS for test images.
This setup is composed of 2 boxes I cut up (one was used for the final build while the other was cut for support structures as the box I used needed it) and 97¢ poster board from Walmart (not permanently installed). The camera I used for these test photos is a Sony a5000 with the kit lens.
In order to support my backdrop since it has a tendency to fall without support, I use my TV (monitor) as a support.
I am looking for an LED light I can use for lighting. However I found a few at Walmart I liked at the same time, but I want to weigh out my options first before I buy anything.
To provide a frame of reference for how bad my laptop photos tend to be, I present this from the Toshiba L755 hard drive replacement guide:
I am going to provide 2 sets of images:
- Raw (Unedited)
- Edited (brightness adjustment)
Anyway, here's the image sets:
Dell laptop boot image (I am aware of the ghosting; that's caused by my UV filter used to protect the lens)
Brightness and color temperature changed manually
The only change made here is I added some brightness manually using the curves option in paint.net
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
