    Hello everybody,

    I am planning to buy my first photo studio. I need to make really nice pictures of sunglasses, phones, watches, purse ect.
    What do you think of this type of equipment?

    Would this two 2 x "160W Equivalent 5500k Perfect Daylight Spiral Bulbs" get me far? Is the effect of using a box like that much better than direct exposure?

    I would appreciate any help.

    Thank you very much

    A light tent means softer shadows. Harsh shadows aren't desirable in those kinds of photos. Strobe lights on both side mean more even lighting

    EDIT: I didn't mean to say strobe :p

    Can others edit my Photos:

    This will give you good results. Be sure and use a tripod, because your exposures may be fairly long when using continuous output lights.
