    When object is smaller than the emitting surface of light source, it will be very difficult to control shadow of the object in your desired way because light source will become soft light. I am using Broncolor Fibrolite system for small objects, making use of optical fibre to direct light to areas that you want.

    Broncolor Fibrolite is actually a concealed flashhead with power of 3200Ws and has four ports for connecting to four optical fibre; light intensity of each port can be separately adjustable in step of one stop. The Fibrolite has to work with power pack which provide overall adjustment of light intensity.

    I have use ring light, spot light with adjustable lens, and light bar for illuminating my objects, of course all connected to Fibrolite with optica fibre.

    Object illuminated by fibre optic striplight, there is a adjustable cylindrical lense to focus light on the object.
