    Ok so I decided to try out shoooting some things in a light tent. It had just never come up before and I had a few ideas on some fun shots so I figured I'd give it a try :)

    I picked up a light tent for a great price, under $30 and I found some light that will suit my purpose on sale in the closeout bin for $5 each. So I'm kind of all set up with my "Budget Light Tent Playtime" experiment. But one question crops up.....

    What do you use to secure your subjects? I'm interested in some flower shots and I'm trying to decide what best to use to hold them, angle them, etc. Is there some sort of articulated arm I should be looking for or what?

    Any suggestions, thoughts, hints would be great!

    Thanks ;)

    You could do it on the cheap with piece of coathanger and a roach clip. It may be tricky to compose the shot so the clip doesn't show.

    Cheers
