    Very nice and simple setup....and easily scalable up or down depending on the prop size :)

    :cheers,

    The key is the lighting... I have a little tent with nice white material that scatters well, but I only use the camera flash and room lighting... I end up with gray tones and shadows that I either have to get rid of in Photoshop or just live with. A 2 or 3 light setup is def. the way to go.

    I use something similar but I did pay for it. It's from ezcube.com. I bought their lighting setup as well. I don't use a flash (never do.) and I am able to get some nice photos with minimal work in Photoshop.
