Setting up a permanent photo studio in your workspace can save time and money. A simple set up will allow you to take photos in your workspace.
Here are the basics for your photo studio (assumes you already have a digital camera):
Place your lights at 45 degree angles, on both sides of your subject.
Raise one light slightly higher than the other (it doesn’t matter which side). This will eliminate reflections from the lights.
Place the tripod a few feet away from the table. Use a level surface if possible. Tighten all the locks of the tripod legs. If your surface is uneven, extend one of the legs more to compensate.
