This is interesting what light source are you using Def?
U using a P/S. or a dslr taking photos?My canon 7.1 mp P/S doesnt seem to take very good tool photos or it's the user....prob the user too much brightness or not enough like the Casio watch btw
Wax paper works great as a diffuser.Just throwing that out there.
I've bought a number of new lights, but still haven't gotten the photos I was after- if anything, it's getting worse.Def
