    Ok well I just got a canon 500d close up lens and pretty much just want to practice with it in the house. I am having trouble getting good lighting to do this is there anything I can rig up or buy that will help me get better lighting? I saw some lightbox images and they look pretty cool but I am not sure how id make one of those.

    Simple starting point is a table next to a window & a mirror to fill in the shadows.

    Yes, there's definitely ones you can buy too. I'm sure Adorama or B&H would have many options. Also like Ron said, something by a window works well. We have a white dresser by a bay window in one of our spare rooms, and I use it all the time like that.
