Desktop Closeup Photography - Table Top Equipment 4 © 2007

24" Cube Set up
This is pretty much the desktop setup I use now for most of my photography. It offers maximum flexibility in a relatively small space.

Two light stands are located on he table with eh cube and provide the overall light, a third stand may be positioned on the floor, in front of the cube to give stronger high lights.

The third light is sometimes placed above the cube and looks down, I even have another table top stand that goes into the light cube for back lighting when I need it.

I have also used my light box inside the light cube to provide back lighting on flat objects or translucent slabs.

The following slide shows some resultant pictures, and the next couple of slides show some typical set-ups.
