    Many of us just want to have fun making stuff and are not into photography but are put off by being criticised for photography skills...

    I think the main thing is to not let the pen or other item get lost onto a cluttered background. A single coloured background is ideal as long as it does not clash with the item being photographed. A large piece of MDF painted with a matt white will do the trick no special set ups. This way it does not get into the complications of having lights and other stuff.
    As I stated in my first post a white background ad taken in good light not direct sunlight can produce a nice simple picture.

    No, it doesn't matter. However, from time to time people ask how to improve their photos, so I started this thread to let people pass on their tips and tricks, for the benefit anyone interested. In fairness, I don't see photos being criticised that often at all Kevin, and if they are, it's usually because the subject can't be seen properly, either because the photo is too dark or because the background is too cluttered. In your case, it's your hobby, in other people's cases, it's their hobby. Each puts into it and takes out of it what they want to. There are no photo police here, just an widespread spirit of helpfulness.
