Emulating scanner light fall off

Greetings all,

I’ve been mulling over the best way to light a subject that would give a result similar to a scanner. Images made by using a scanner (“scannography”) have a nice, soft, even lighting with a quick fall off. Ex: https://www.scannography.org/artists/Anthony-Tony.html

My inclination is to use a ring flash with some form of soft box around it, close to the subject, at low power. Any thoughts? Opinions or recommendations are welcome!

David
