Hello AVS,
Me again. I'm always on this site looking around trying to find new things. One thing I've always noticed for sure are pictures of people showing there displays. Weather it be on or off. I've seen some amazing shots of people showing the HDTV, Speakers,etc... I was wondering if there were any tips I could follow as to how to get better shots when doing such a thing? I own an EOS 7D. So I've got plenty of camera power. Just have no idea how to use it when it comes to taking pictures of my set up.

Thanks-Juke

NEVER USE THE FLASH

I have a 60D, and the current shutter count is 26364 and I have used the flash less than 5 times.

If the light is a bit low, use a tripod and long shutter. Lowest ISO is best.

If you have L glass for low light, don't use it wide open - the DOF will be too thin to show all your gear off. Generally F2.5 is the biggest for most general pics, and only open up to eg F1.2 if you are trying to isolate a particular part of your equipment in the shot.

NEVER USE THE FLASH

I could use a few of these tips. I'll have to try F1.2 for sure. The big problem I find myself having is shutter. I often cause to much or to little light to come threw. Causing the image to be either to bright and washed out or to dim with lack of color. These pics are taken in a 100% black out room with only the TV light on. I'll try these tips tonight and see how they work. Thanks for the tips thus far.
