    Default Best Ever?

    As we are wont to do, me and Randy were browsing through ebay. We found this auction, and thought we'd comment on it. Although the razor is nothing special, the photographs might be the best we've ever seen on an ebay razor auction. I thought I'd post this to show how it should be done, and to ask how was it done?

    Boy...I feel like like a dumb shit. :

    You're right about the pix, absolute top-notch.

    The pics are too good for what they're showing.

    The seller responded that he is using a Sony Mavica FD-100.
    I have sent him another email asking about backround and light box usage. Lets see what he says.

    Now he needs to find razors worth buying...

    With pics like these, you don't need a description in words.

    At first they look like scans, but, from the depth of field shown in some pictures, they obviously aren't. The background is probably just green-screened out. Pretty easy to do if you have a uniformly coloured background and know how to use the magic wand tool in photoshop. The magic in the magic wand does a lot of the work for you


    FYI, the camera imprinted JPEG EXIF metadata has been retained on these pictures. This will tell you a bunch about what camera settings were used to take the photo, if that's what you're interested in.
