I'm going to buy a copy stand to easily take pictures of my papers, and also pictures of what I'm writing and drawing on my desk, sometimes also taking videos.
I was wondering what kind of lights I should use for this job?
Currently I'm considering three alternatives:
- a copy stand with integrated lights like this one http://www.amazon.com/ProMaster-2174-Promaster-Copy-Stand/dp/B001VDNP3O/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1362145499&sr=8-2&keywords=copy+stand , but I'm not sure the lights will be the best
- a copy stand with more professional lights, but then how many and which ones (some LEDs?)? Knowing that because I will sometimes take videos while my hand is writing, I will need lights that can soften the shadows.
- put my copy stand inside a light tent, with regular lights on each side, and then take pictures inside the tent
What would you go with? Budget for the lights would be around $100.
