Lighting setup

Due to the volume of requests, I'm posting this. This is the basic idea behind my set up for shooting still life objects with a white background. Its a photo of an older version of my current setup, but the idea is the same. A white 2 sided enclosure made of foamcore.
Enjoy!

Wow! The hardware looks like it came from "Home Depot". What kind of bulbs did you use in the fixtures. I'd like to put together an inexpensive still life setup for myself.

BTW. I enjoy your work. You have a vrey keen style I think.

Yes... Home Depot. The whole thing cost less than $50. I use 120 watt bulbs in the clip on lamps, and I have no idea what kind are in the mounted lights...
Glad you like my stuff...

shadows missing
hi

i m from india... and enjoyed ur work .. was myself planning to do stuff like this .. for product shots .. what is the white base u have .. and how big it is ...and why are the shadows not so prominent ... and colors so actual as in white base ... i tried my hand with 120 watts bulb on white chart papers.. but they have this yellow and dull effect and the colors do tend to get wierd tints as in purple would tend to look cyan type blue and horrible colors .. how do i avoid those ...
bye n regards

Re: shadows missing
I have no idea why you're having color problems. Maybe your camera? As I indicated in my posting, the enclosure is made of foamcore.
