I built some light stands for this purpose, but found that there is a lot
of heat generated - bad for the fish - and limited light - bad for the
photos.  Seems the lighting of choice is a flash held over top of the tank.
Haven't tried it yet, but it has to be easier than setting up these

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
