Setting up a Still Life

I decided to create a still life light box  over the weekend since I have  a yen to do a few small still life paintings. This video gives you an idea of how it works.
I have a thing for shadows (can't see in the cropped portion but it lurks in the back) and it has a bit of a sinister feel to it, and my still life has become more of a memento mori.

I wasn't planning that, but I guess after reading the news and seeing so many people dying suddenly the sense of mortality was preying on my subconscious. 
It's proving to be a real challenge as the skull is a hologram image in a block of glass, argh! Did I pick something easy lol!
