Article alert - Apparent Light Size
The Strobist carries an interesting article entitled "Apparent Light Size". I think that it is well worth a read for anyone interested in small scale still life photography. If you find that piece interesting you might want to look at other articles on the same site. The most valuable part of it is that he is not using highly expensive and specialised equipment, but the sort of kit that many people can easily afford and may already have. Take a look.
