    Back-light setup on the cheap

    Hello All,

    Here's what I use to do this type of photo's.
    #1 adj. Tripod with camera set on 2 second delay. *a must*

    Ok, Things needed.
    Black CD insert from older style CD case
    Pop out the bottom and use scissors to cut out desired size or not. Notice the opening, marbles will sit right in it.
    Lava Lamp...(get at church sales, yard sales, wherever) Never paid more then a buck for one.
    Get rid of the glass part and just keep the base with the cord!. What's good about this, it has on/off switch.

    Now you have the parts. Just put the cut out cd case on it and set your camera to shoot straight down/head on and Bam, you have your picture. You could drill some holes in the base to let heat out if you wish.

    Hope this helps
