All my indoor still-life work is done in the dark using primarily flashlight and various forms of spotlight with a smattering of black-light and red laser light for good measure.

I will happily answer any questions about my work; hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks Robert, I’ll post a picture of my home-made wooden background prop. I think it would work well for you in some cases for small still -life on a table top. See my more recent pictures for how I use it.
