Photo tricks

I have a suggestion that might help with the photography problems that
doesn’t cost much at all. Take a rather translucent LAMPSHADE, set it
on a background of your choice, on a table. Set up lights (I use the
cheap reflector lamps from the hardware store) on the outside of the
lampshade and take your pictures through the small opening at the top
(wire removed, of course). You won’t believe the results that you can
achieve with such a simple setup. Bud cravener
