Wine bottle i dun think tis 1 can, i think its more for macro type of product shoot.

Recommend either a product shoot table with plexiglas top and/or light tent. 3 Lights, 500W each would be sufficient for single product.

wine bottles is quite tricky esp. if u want good lighting.
perfumes should be ok if u're goin for those flat and lifeless type.

as for the size, think that set-up table can only handle small products. u're better off with ur own shooting table and lightings.

Hi there. Follow this URL for a simple setup. I myself is looking for the halogen lamp shown there. Anyone knows where I can get one?

try lighting shops along jalan besar or ikea. they have plenty of lamps to choose from but you have to decide if you want a flood or spot type to compliment whatever you already have. even table flou lamps with crane arms can be used for such product lighting.

simply put, you can use anything as long as it gets the job done. :bsmilie:
