Quite often you see nice close up detailed pictures of a single item such as lenses, laptops, ipods etc.. on a nice plain white background so that there is nothing else complicating the picture.
Im just wondering, is there any good technique or way to get this nice clear white background effect? Do they put the item on a white sheet or something, or is it a photoshop affect?
I always have problems taking pictures of items because I dont have a good sice space where there will be nothing else in the background of the image making the background look busy.
I have taken an example from nathan's flickr album, I hope you dont mind:
I want to get this technique so I can take nice pictures of items for my blog and for ebay.
