The photo taken under halogen lighting illustrates a poor man's photo studio techniques. It illustrates the point that you cannot really do much worse than shown here, unless you really try. See the description of my 'studio' at the bottom of this page, but first sit on a firm surface. I cannot be held responsible if you start laughing so hard that you'll fall down and damage yourself in the process :-)
Also, I need to add some more lighting conditions (diffused sunlight, overhead sunlight, etc.). Eventually, after I have finished building my greenhouse, I'll come back to this topic.
Note: to view this page, you really need a monitor capable of displaying thousands of colors, and a 24-bit color setting is is highly recommended.
My conclusion: take your photos on a sunny day. Or get a real studio setup.
Indoor flash, after moderate post-processing for the insufficient exposure.
The same photo, taken with indoor flash, before any corrections.
Indoor, indoor halogen lighting, really lousy setup, after moderate post processing for underexposure.
