Tabletop Photo Studio
A couple of weeks ago I had to set up my own tabletop photo area for taking photos for our wicked laser review. Knowing very little about photography and lighting I bodged it some what (as the pictures probably show). I wished I’d known of this gadget before then, the Tabletop Photo Studio.
The Tabletop Photo Studio will hopefully help amateur photographers like me take professional looking pictures (time will tell on that one). Specifications and technical details from the site follow:
Ideal for photographing items such as jewelry and collectibles for online auctions or insurance records, or for providing the proper environment for enhancing the hobby of photography, this is the complete tabletop photo studio for use with your own camera that includes two backdrops, a compact light box with an integrated diffuser screen, and two high output lights with adjustable, retractable legs. It comes with two background color choices to provide suitable contrast for both light and dark objects, and the light diffuser balances light while softening distracting shadows for crisp, clear photo lighting. The backdrop folds flat for storage, and the set includes a handle and a built-in carrying case for convenient portability. 20″ H x 20 ” W x 20″ D. (4 1/2 lbs.)
Available for a reasonable $79.95 from Hammacher, mine is on order.
