Light arena for insect photography

Light arena for insect photography
Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
In 2005 I designed and built this inelegant device to give continuous 360-degree illumination for live insect photo shoots, and I've used it practically every day since. I called it a light arena because insects can run, fly, mate, eat, drink and fight with each other in the illuminated space while being photographed. Following photos show construction and components.

See Lighting solutions for insect photography page in Forums section.
