Elegant Product Shots

I'm quite engrossed in book writing right now, and to support the effort I took these two brochure-worthy product shots using the A7r and a Minolta 100mm macro lens (with LA-EA4 adapter, of course.)

These shots are easier than most people think.  All it takes is one wireless flash off to the side, preferably with a diffuser like a white sheet in front of it to soften the light.  In my case I used a softbox designed for wireless flashes which does the same thing (see photo below).
