The forum has been down and it has been raining, so I haven't posted in awhile. Still getting used to the new style. this was taken with the 300D, Tamron 28-100 Macro @ 80mm. The deer is 18ct. Gold and about 1.5"x1.5". I bought it Brazil. It is mounted on an Amehtyst crystal.

Here's a close-up that doesn't look like one until you know the actual size of the piece. It must have been tough to light with all those sparkly surfaces. Did you use direct or indirect light?

Used a diffused over head bank, I made myself. Being a carpenter, cabinetmaker and electrician helps. i build all my own studio gear. i also made the background and resting place from very dense black velvet. I have a room whose walls are flat black and no windows. i do not get treflections or ambient light.

Rick, you've perked up my ears. I desperately want a few good studio lights but can't currently afford them. Would you be willing to post a photo or two of what you've designed and built yourself? My husband is handy and dandy, capable of both wood and metal construction plus the necessary wiring.

Welding is nice when you can get it, but nuts and bolts work pretty darned well for joining metal.
