thanks for the tips guys, it just so happens that my motherboard side is a feature as well, with a glowy logo and two UV CCFls. More a distraction than normal. I might rig up some independent UV CCFls to place around the case when I photo it, help highlight the edges and create the appropriate "Glowiness." I have pretty much relied on my cameras many capabilities rather than external lighting out of laziness. Anybody who is interested can see some "wanted to post so I took a bunch of pictures" over at (whisper) gruntville.com here (if this is inappropriate, just say so): Gluttony Case Gallery I didn't want to link the images for display, the admins might not like it.
