As I had to redo my photo setup, I was looking for some different lights myself. If you're looking for small, these might do the trick:


They appear to have decent reviews, and the lights themselves can be found on eBay for cheaper if you wish.

I ended up buying a more generic version of the Viltrox L132T, which, if they are either the Viltrox L132T or some generic version of the same product, there are a bunch of YouTube reviews that are favorable, as well as good Amazon reviews for the Viltrox as well.

You specifically mentioned a need for small, which is why I linked these.

I may not have been clear. Should have provided visual examples before.

This is what I'm talking about

As you can see, the fur is extremely fine, the shadows are very subtle, and the look is impossible to pull off with my current top-down setup (four soft boxes surrounding the item on a white table). It basically needs to be backlit. I want these items to look like they are floating. Partly because of the way they are used, and what they are shown next to (other places than just Amazon--we put about 60 in our catalog this year), and partly because you can just plain see what it is better when it's perfectly depicted against white.

The plexiglass was my first idea for something transparent and rigid, so I can light the product from the top, and light the background from below, separately and just enough to clip into white without blowing out the product.

[EDIT] I think this is the answer! ... It won't be quite large enough for our biggest products but it'll cover probably 99% of what I shoot top down against white. The surface is translucent (or so it says) so I can backlight it. Thank you /u/headinthered!!

Thanks! My camera is a Canon T6 with the default lens. For the photos, I use the the LimoStudio cyclorama wall (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PM9USLA/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and two spotlights.

It looks like this when it's put together: https://i.imgur.com/di5Km4p.jpg

A table, Acrylic sheets in gloss, acrylic ice cubes, spray bottle with water glycerin mix (makes it look like cold condensation) sticky tack, monofilament fishing line, lots of light stands, v-flats, reflectors. There’s tons more I’m just spitballing ideas.

I'm attempting a DIY still life table of sorts.

Why not something like this?

It's a pretty basic setup right now. Here it is. I've been trying to find a better white surface but it's been difficult. Also have thought about buying this, but haven't dove in yet. My base is just 3/4" pvc pipe, about 40" wide and 2' deep. I shoot with a Canon 60D with a shitty 28-135mm lens on it now, then just some minor adjustments in Adobe Lightroom to fix exposure and white balance.
