Thread: "Photo studio" light tent?

  1. #1

    "Photo studio" light tent?

    I've taken a few indoor shots of smallish things, and have been pretty disappointed. For selling on fleabay os here, it's generally been shooting downwards onto a sheet; for my attempts at still life type shots it's usually been onto a table, when I have problems with the background, and getting the lighting right. I usually use old manual film cameras, although the "product shots" are with a Fuji X10. I don't have any lights other than windows and a bit of light cardboard as a reflector. gia xe tai van dongben 2 cho

    So, I was wondering whether one of these light tent thingies that are on the bay would be a good buy, for example this one at Ģ36 plus postage. Includes a 40 or 80 cm cubic tent, a couple of lights on stands (45W energy saving spiral, 5500 K), and a mini tripod (the latter redundant, as I do at least have a tripod). There was another one, slightly smaller and cheaper, with 2800K LED lamps.

    Are these a good idea, or am I better buying a couple of lights of my own and attempting my own light tent? (Not very handy!)

    These light tents/cubes aren't actually for photography, they're for selling to people who believe in marketing hype...
    Just get yourself one flash head, one softbox and a simple reflector. Add a second flash head if you want the background to be white. The cost will be higher, but so will the quality.

    yeah but by the time you build your softbox and place your reflector you've run out of space, these kits are small and compact..
