    Photographing your work

    I would like to find out how you all photograph your work? The cheaper the setup the better

    Not liking the results I am having. Pics of your setup would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Gotta confess, I don't use a 'set up'. I just take whatever outside to the shade, prop on a rock or stump or bring a small table out and take my shots. This works best with small items, like pens. But larger things can get unwanted shadows inside. For that, I'll hit with flash.

    I used to use a pillowcase draped over a box or something with the camera on a tripod. I recently sprung for a Steve Kaeser light box and the change in my photos has been striking.
