Default paint sand paint sand ....

For the love of god how many times do i have to do this ? Look at it. Is not even. It seemed that way with 4 coats of primer... now i start throwing black on there and BAM there are lines. Should i be doing this with a spray can and NOT a roller brush combo ?

When photographing, one of the ways to obfuscate a reflecting surface that is to be analyzed is to have a patterned or textured item in the background and positioned as to appear in the reflected surface.

I'm getting tired, after a year, of pointing out the obvious that nobody sees nor cares about.

There's the right way and the wrong way. I now see a pair of votes for the wrong way. Who else wants to join them?

Bill: No one listened to you because you haven't given any suggestions yet. Just complaints.

It may be old hat to you, but some folks are hearing it for the first time. You're not explaining it over and over to the same person. So why not be a sport and give Mike the benefit of your experience?

I got it after i posted, what he meant i mean. thats why i cracked a joke. I am not a photographer so i dont 'think' like one. I apologize for having a patterned object in the background. I will make it a point to set the light proper if i bother to ask how to get a nice clear coat on a box again. But i probably wont as i figure things out pretty quick as long as thinking isnt involved.
