Sorry wonderful people who read my blog.  I've been working on a little side project that took up most of my free time this weekend.  But today I thought I'd give you a tutorial on how to take some "product shots."  You know, pictures of things like jewelry or food or anything that you want to take  a photo of but you want it to have a white background and to be sitting on a white surface.
