Photographing enamels is tricky, given their reflective surface and potential depth. In particular, I was interested in taking pictures of pieces in progress so that I could create time-lapse gifs, preferable something fixed like a lightbox but smaller. I don't have a great camera, or a lot of room for a setup, but I did manage to think of something. Access to a bandsaw, some scrap wood and MDF, a clip light I wasn't using, glue, screws, wire, spraypaint, and a leftover Chinese takeout container later, I had my setup:
The camera in this case is my cell phone, which is of far better quality than the actual digital camera I have, hence the rectangular frame on top of the white container. It slots into the top, and the camera lens lines up with the hole in the container.
It may look like a kludgy version of the Enterprise, but it works! Pretty well, actually. Just remember: if something is stupid, but works, it isn't stupid.
