    Thanks. I need a brighter light. The one I used tonight with the new light box I made just wasn't bright enough. I did go and check out tripods today though!

    try angling your light sources from the side, instead of front or behind you...that will take your shadow out of the pic...

    I was doing it from straight above. It's just a hanging light, no clamp. But I'll see what I can do.

    I use a clamp light with a daylight spectrum CFL for most of my photos if I can't use the sun. It works just as well as any flash. You may want to get a new battery, that will help a lot. I can't tell you how many times I've run out of battery while doing fieldwork. Different thing, but same relevance.

    Same here, it's frustrating looking at prices. Even the off brands are expensive.

    No problem. That's how I light all of my sculptures when I photograph them. It's cheap, simple, and effective.
