    Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, so I apologize in advance if not.

    I made a light tent using these instructions: http://digital-photography-school.com/blog/how-to-make-a-inexpensive-light-tent/

    The final result turned out to be pretty nice. In the two pictures I am posting, I should have used more than one lamp but I am still impressed with the results.

    Great project, I picked up a couple of the 5" work lights from Home Depot and use the flouresent screw in bulbs. Now I just have to put a box together.

    I do agree with you, I would try more than one light..

    I just tried using more than one light and it still came out a bit too dark. I think I need brighter bulbs.

    Thanks guys. I can't decide whether I like that last one better or this edited version of it:

    Any thoughts?

    Edit: For an easier comparison, here is the other one once again:

    I'm thinking the original (the one right above this text) is better because of the lack of unnatural looking shadows and, while I like the cartooney look of the other one, the colors are a bit too...distorted, or something.

    But then again, the edited one seems a bit more interesting. Hmm..

    I agree with you. The edited one looks a little bit to "cartonized"
