    Default Photography light tent

    Has anyone ever made a light tent for lighting products better? They sell a few on Ebay but making one would be cheaper.

    I sell electronic components on Ebay and things seem to sell better with good quality pictures so I am trying to improve them. I took this picture with a point and shoot on a tripod with the remote timer turned on.

    I agree with your statement however I have yet to sus just how people make up there minds. You will know that one day the price can be high & the next rock bottom. Still good fun though. ..

    I've got one from eBay, and it's alright. Some people have used washing up baskets from Tesco, as they're similar, and about £2.

    I thought about some white perspex for the base.

    To do that picture I used white paper and over exposed the shot. Using CS2 I could then select the white very easily and then select the inverse, feather, copy and paste then delete the orignal layer.
