    They use a light box. I used to have one I built, but it got broken in a move and I haven't made one since. Basically you use 8 side outlet 90° bends, and connect them with PVC pipe in whatever dimensions you want your box to be (24" square box = 24" pipe). You then use the box as a frame for your backdrop and diffusers (I used a black microfiber 'throw' blanket for a background and white sheets for light diffusers). At that point add your lights, and take your pictures from a hole you cut in the front of the box (this keeps the steel from reflecting YOU lol). The black and white really seemed to bring out hamon activity (others have used it to bring out layered activity in tamahagane...much like your 'clouds') in steel.

    Here's a quick wiki tutorial I found, only they're using a cardboard box. I like the PVC better because its modular...you can have three different sized light boxes by just cutting different length pipes.

    Hope that helps!
