    This is one of those questions I've been afraid to ask out loud. I go through the same hassle ever 2 years when I want to sell my phone...

    I can't seem to get good photos of my phone to include in an eBay listing or wherever. I don't know how to avoid shadows. I'm using a decent camera - Lumix DMC-ZS3, albeit about 5 years old.

    Thanks for any tips!

    This was the answer for me and for a measly $13. Reflections were always appearing when taking a photo of a phone or any shiny object. The portable tent is really a nifty item and allowed me to take very professional looking photos of my phone. It will help with other listings too. Thanks again to beernut.
