This just came up on eBay. It's a good example of how not to use back lighting, the need for a tripod, a good example of how to use a background color not the same as the item and the need to purchase or make a light tent of some sort to diffuse the light.

Was rushing to take a photo of a 302 ringer mount today so free handed it in existing light, no flash. When I brought up the photo for processing, I ran for my tripod.

The image on the left was free handed, the one on the right using a tripod. The image on the left may not look bad in thumbnail size but if you click on the image and enlarge it, you will see the hand held motion blur. Goes away with a tripod and the camera set on timer mode.

They are a bit of a pain to set up and put away but the quality of the photos in existing or low light situations is very noticeable. I even lost some available light while getting the tripod and setting it up, the right image is a bit darker.
