    i need help with ideas on lighting cylinder shapes (billiard cues) with as little glare and as much detail as possible. i'm currently using flourescent lights in enclosed cases with a frosted cover at both ends of the cue and raise the cue about a foot from the background. also have used a circular polarizer. i'm still finding that i am not getting enough light to bring out detail without a lot of photoshop time. the only ideas i have to improve right now are doubling the lighting and the ends of the cue and or adding an led strip light that is advertised as closest thing to daylight:) any ideas would be much appreciated.
    thanks! :blushing:

    i have a tent i tried with poor results due to not enough light. but they are such a pain to work with as well! maybe i should get the halogens and give it another try!
