I know what you mean about the flash and over exposure.  We have a small,
high intensity lamp that I have used but I can clean up most of it after it
gets to the computer.  I also have a photo stand but do not use it.  Its
very cumbersome and the 4 large bulbs tend to dry the specimen.

I'm using an Acer dye sublimation printer for superb, photo quality prints.
We have included digital pics and/or prints with cases that we have sent out
for consult and received very favorable comments.
