John De Cristofaro (aka johngineer) whipped up an incredibly detailed and helpful tutorial for rigging and taking truly great photos of small objects over at Adafruit. He shows you how to build a small cyclorama (a seamless uniform background rig) and use lights and reflectors to get the best photos possible. With such fantastic resources online for DIYers, there’s no excuse for a stray shadow in your crafty product photos!
