    yeah, the previous attempt with the ikea light was too dark. I tried again today, and here's what I came up with. i know, it's still a bit too dark.

    I think its a good idea and cool lighting but its still just a bit too dark. Mess with your manual settings and get it a bit brighter. You may have to play with the back light. Move it farther away or lessen it somehow if it becomes too bright(probably wont tho)

    Try it at post them up

    maybe get the whole figure too. portrait not landscape. that might be cool.

    humm yeah. they look a lot brighter on camera... :S i'm not sure why. so i see it on the camera and think it's up to my standards.... and clean up. then i get on the computer and things seem darker :( iunno. i'll try this again sometime, and yeah maybe portrait this time, maybe the whole figure on a glass table too, so i can get a slight reflection hopefully. thanks :p

    Very cool. Thanks for posting picture and setup. Cheap and easy way to experiment with lighting.
