    Main from 10 oclock, fill high and front. Just follow the flashhead reflections and shadows.

    The easiest and cheapest way to achieve this look is by setting table and objects right next to the biggest window you can find. Put a reflector or large white card on the opposite side to bounce some light. Use a tripod, remote, and mirror lock.

    In the example you showed, the flattened perspective comes from using a rather long lens, probably longer than normal tabletop work. Instead of a tripod, you're probably looking at a ladder and a clamp. Either that, or use the floor instead of a tabletop.

    Well, as of right now I only have my Canon A610 to work with, so I will be limited on some things...

    But I think if I get up as high as possible, and zoom in, I can get the perspective I want. The lighting might be a little harder, I was thinking about building a 3-sided light tent, and put some light behind it, and also put the lgihting on the frontside, but with a smaller light?
