This image was made with a scanner not a camera. Arrange your image on the scanner, hold a black piece of card on top and do a preview. Rearrange and preview until satisfied with the result, then scan the final image and take it into Lightroom or Photoshop.
To answer the question from yesterday's post, arrange your items on a lightbox and then take the photo from directly above. The ipad can be used for smaller items with the LED lightbox app. Light boxes that were used to view slides can also be used. I am having one built from a 2 ft and 2 ft fluorescent ceiling box. This is a much cheaper way to go than buying a lightbox from a store dedicated to photography equipment.
