Workspaces - tables, bonsai platforms and where you take the photo
You should have a clear and open safe workspace to work in, free of obstacles and trip hazards.
A nice flat level area with protection from direct sun
A living room, kitchen or garage where you will have lots of space to place a good table and have room to move around the table to adjust the tree and lights if you are using them.
If you are using natural light indoors, place your table or work surface with this in mind.
You can take photos with a single light source like a window or a skylight. Using everyday materials as diffusers and reflective material to bounce the light around.
