Not sure if that helps or not.
That's really good! great job.

I haven't read through the posts so this might be a repeat. I don't take them in the direct sunlight because they are too bright. I take mine inside by my front window where there is a nice natural light (not in the direct sunlight though). I change my camera settings so that they pictures turn out just right. I am not sure what camera you have so I don't know how you would change it.

A white background can be difficult too because white will reflect a lot of light back to the camera, possibly causing under exposure.

Try experimenting with some other background colors- light blue, black, even a pink, depending on the color of the object. I like to select the highest contrast background color so that the bow stands out. It also gives me the option to photoshop the background out if I want.
