You might consider:

copy stand:


Instead of an expensive copy stand . . . would this be possible by putting the artwork on the wall and putting your camera on a tripod (or simply putting it on a bunch of books resting on top of a desk?)

Or google copy stand, Use Home Depot lamps for lighting.

Has anyone tried this with regular lightbulbs in two lamps placed on either side of the artwork?

A long time ago I bought a "full spectrum" light bulb. (I read somewhere that it woke you up better than the warmer lighting.)

Wondering if that could be a cheap light source?

OP: Do you have an off camera flash unit?

Take care & Happy Shooting!

focusing rail:


camera remote switch also camera mirror lockup.
