Lightbox Tent photography

I love to photography the landscape and cityscape. Unfortunately, it seems that it is not quite high demand. Most of the time, they are not considered as "stock oriented" picture when I tried some creative or so called artistic point of view.

After more that 250 uploads of 370 submissions picture, I come with the fact that isolated items picture are more demanded and some more for the daily used items.

So I decided to try to do some "stock-oriented" picture ;) I bought a cheap lightbox tent. I mount it with two daylight (daylight color) electric bulb low energy consumption on each side of the tent.

I did captured seven items that I can grab at that moment when I finished to mount the tent. I isolated and submitted them... Oh surprise! 6/7 submissions was accepted. No PR. No MR. No "protected by copyright/trademark" Nothing! Yeah ;) So far so good!

The rejected one is a black staple with a little bit of DOF and It seems that DT "is not looking for it any more"

Here, they are :

@Cbomers @Zenpix I might say that I was impossible for me to get the item isolated on white out of the box/camera. I tried some isolation with the "PS/Magic Tools" but the isolation was not smooth enough for, again, the "Stock Oriented" picture so they were rejected with right reason. As my skill in PS wasn't that hight specially with the "plumb tool". I read and read posts on Internet and finish to catch out the key tricks which are the "Ctrl and Alt". The isolation becomes a pleasure now. Of course, I did it for the simple object first.
To answer to how I do that, in fact, I use the lightbox tent to have an omni direction light only.

Same question as Zenpix, I also used the lightbox, but getting it isolated on white out of the camera seems rather hard, also had to use PS, how are you doing this?

I recently did the exact same thing. Cheap light tent, 2 lights etc. Cheap set up, rather boring pictures, however, they get accepted. its almost frustrating. lol. Congratulations on the approvals, and good luck with downloads.

technical question: with the light box, were you able to get it isolated on white out of the camera or did you have to mess around with the photo in PS to make it comletly white?

no mater what i do i have to use P/S to make the background white. its annoying. i have given up trying to get it right in the camera.
its not worth it to me, takes too long in photoshop for not enough$$.

Very interesting article. My own prefernces in photography are not exactly in line with the requirements of stock, so I can see that this is something that I am going to have to try myself.
