Coins, pocket watches, dead bugs, etc...
[Mark-For-Expiry] This has *got* to exist, somewhere. But I
haven't been able to find one quite as described - had to
make my own by cutting the bottom off of an empty* plastic
The cloche is a dome of thin, translucent HDPE, with an
at the top to accomodate a cellphone camera. Small flexible
made of plastic around the opening can adjust
hold almost any size cellphone in the correct position.
To use: Place the subject to photograph on a table. Place the
cloche over it, with two or more lamps arranged around it.
These diffuse through the plastic so the subect is lit
evenly, without harsh shadows or glare. Attach the cellphone
camera to focus through the opening in the top. Focus and
ideally with a time delay or remote shutter control so you don't
shake the camera.
I've found some light tents and gadgets ALMOST like this, but
are deficient in some ways. Any suggestions?
* otherwise, it makes quite a mess.
