Two pieces of glass. The pen sitting on one piece of glass, another piece of glass below the pen glass with vellum on a dark gel filter. A tiny fill light under the Vellum. Product in a light tent with a main and fill light.

I did use a tent, but similar results could be achieved without the tent.

There was one fluorescent light shining through the left side of the tent, and a simple white reflector to the right of the pen.

Oh, and the other thing... I will upload a photo soon <vbg>

I see the crowd getting restless and sharpening their pointed sticks...

Here's a photo of the important part of the setup.

I'll fill in the details after some of you stop laughing <vbg>

Cool! Geeky setup.... Do you take the picture with the iPhone? And i think the iPad definitely qualifies as the most expensive material to lay the pen on that I've seen!

No, the camera was a Nikon D7000, but I certainly could have used the iPhone, as I've made a tripod mount for it (used for some video recording)

In this case, the iPhone was actually controlling/adjusting what was being displayed on the iPad. This way I don't have to touch the iPad once the pen has been put into place.

That's hilarious. I have to agree though. Super geeky and expensive.

I'm guessing that lots of IAP members have iPads or other tablets these days.

By the way, a similar setup could be done using a flat screen computer monitor or laptop display as a background.

You can start imagining the possibilities. I chose a simple white spot for my photo, but the background could have been just about any shape, color, image...
