Default New lighting setup

Played around last night with a new lighting setup to have a more natural look than a light box. Taken in a dark room on my kitchen table with a single light. Let me know what you all think? Does it work?

I'm far from an expert but it looks good to me.

This was not, actually. Just a clamp-on lamp with a LED bulb. A friend of mine is a professional photographer and we were talking about pen/product photos the other day. She suggested this article and i thought I'd try it. A higher light set with a softbox/strobe would be better... But I need new lenses and a different body before I go buying accessories

Beautiful pen. The reflection is distracting though since the clip and the tip are so visible but the body isn't. JMHO.

The reflection on the board is distracting, maybe the same background hit with some 0000 steel wool.

It's my kitchen table.... I spent too many hours finishing it to scratch with steel wool

This was actually set on glass. I was going for some reflection, but see your point. I've since used it without.
