Okay here is a quick and cheap way to do photos for your masks or things you want to sell HorrorBid.
1) Camera and tripod (use the camera timer when you shutter speed is less than 60)
2) Cheap black sheet from walmart
3) Three tier lighting tower
4) 2 x 2 table, Cheap kiddie table will do
Okay in order to do this I have provided a photograph of a cheap set up. I also provided some examples of different light angles of the light source. Multiple light sources make a lot of photos scream Halloween. Dont be afraid to get close but not too close. Keep your Camera back about 3.5 feet. That is what your zoom is for.
This pic is of the set up. Depending on your bulb wattage will depend on how close you set your light source. The good thing about the three tier light stand you can hold it at different angles.
