Hi, this is surely a stupid question for a lot of people, but i'd like to know how can i get a good white background like those without a professional studio. Or at least a way so can i try to do something similar...Thank you!

You can get these results by using a light tent. You can find some cheap ones on Amazon.com or if you're really strapped for cash, you could always build one.

There are a ton of threads on DPC about this subject. For shots like you have posted lighting the background with a nice even light source is key. a light tent would be ideal for that end result however maybe not for a shot of a frog on a vine. But for the Egg and the Berries it would be perfect. You will still need more than one light to get the results you are looking for. hopefully some others will pop in to this thread and give you the Home Depot Studio ideas etc...

Ah!! Cool!! Yes, i can't even talk about cash, or little elves will come and take my last coins..I'll try to build one! Thanks for the help!

Here's a picture I took using the light tent I built with the instructions in the link I provided above:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/102024/120/763106.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/102024/120/763106.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

For lighting, all I used was two desk lamps with 100 watt CF bulbs.

I'm sorry, they're 23 watt CF bulbs. 100 watt equivalent. Don't use 100 watt CF bulbs in a desk lamp, they might explode, lol. I did have to do a bit of pp with the levels and color, but it was very minor and very simple

And yes, you may send me a PM any time. =)
