Photography: Macro Part 3

My last attempt was sort of the spur of the moment and used supplies that were entirely leftover from the original build. Using one of the shelves in my craft room, I built two screens (foam core with a window cut-out, and thin white cotton stapled (and duct taped) tightly into the center). The screens slide into the shelf, and the lamps are clamped on each side.

The results.
Shelf Lighting - Yarn Test 2

Shelf Lighting - Action Figure Test 1
Male Nurse Doll Action Figure

Impressed. The quality is akin to what I got with the large box.

This will probably be my go-to set-up for everyday pictures. I can leave this set-up, and change the background as needed. Of course, the drawback is that it will only accommodate smaller items.
