I was in Factory Direct & saw light tent kits on sale for $20 that included two lamps & a mini tripod. Seemed like a good deal so I bought one. I have often taken pics in the shop to show/explane things on woodworking forums. Just for fun, I took this first pic as I would have done in the past using shop lighting plus flash. I then set up the tent using the blue side of the blue/grey background that comes with the tent as you see here. I again used the on-board flash & took this pic. The camera was hand held for these shots. I cannot say the light tent did anything to improve the pic of this bit.
