 try lighting them from more towards the front then you might just have the model in its own shadow.

 What you need is a light box.  A simple light box can be made with a regular old card board box with 4 walls and a bottom, some white paper, tape, and 2 desk lamps.  

1st, using the white paper and tape line in interior of the box.  What you are doing is creating a surface that will reflect the light and cause it to bounce around inside the box.  When taking photos position the box so that the front facing open and you have 2 side walls, a floor, ceiling, and back wall.  Now position the lamps on either side of the box and aim the lamp at the right of the box at the left upper edge of the ceiling.  Do the same on the other side.  This will create ambient light that will remove shadow while not having any direct light aimed at the model which can mask detail.

Here is a pic of my light box that I made myself.

And of it lit up.

Hope this helps.
