So im thinking i want to build a little studio-ish set up for taking photos of household things, just a good way to light them and have a good backdrop, but see im short on cash, so im looking for a real cheap way to set something like this up. i just want to take photos of small things, objects mostly. maybe my chameleon.
just looking for some pointers on how to go about lighting it, what kind of bulb or lamp i should try and use. and what should i use for a back drop? cloth? paper of some kind?
im in construction so i can build a stand and i have a tripod, and i have a space i could dedicate to it in the basement. so im just looking for some pointers on the other stuff.
