Here's a shot of my homemade photo set up. Supplies needed:
One light panel from Home Depot, 4 "L" shaped brackets to hold light panel, large piece of black glass from D&L Glass supply, old tripod, with utility light clamped on, with an Eiko photoflood bulb, BBA. Tripod for camera, step ladder to stand upon during shooting, computer nearby to download shots. Camera Nikon D50 with Macro lens, 105mm (a bit beefy).
