    Hi,
    I shoot pictures of sunglasses using a white box --

    I also use:

    3 - 500W flood lights (one over head , 1 on left, 1 on right)

    However becuase i need to constantly reposition the camera -- and the camera needs to be further away than the front of the light box -- it doesnt work well for me to use the front cover to my light box--
    which causes the following problem:

    Similar to

    except I wouldnt see the camera-- but i would see the edges of the light box.


    Ideally i would not like to see any variations in the lens(except the ones from the lens itself) ie. i dont want to see anything that is going on in the background (the edges of the tent...: Similar to

    Looks like the second pic is shot from a higher angle. Don't know if that would help

    Maybe could you use a lens that doesn't have to be so far back from the light tent?

    Another option would be to make a 'sock' for the front of light tent. Just white fabric that attached to the front of the box and then comes down to a small end that could go around the lens.

    Hi Mike,

    thanks for the tip.

    Whats your thoughts on getting a setup , with out using the product tent/cube.

    I tried to shoot some shots without using the tent and I have to say that the "glossyness" of the frame and the color of the lens seems better-- though the shadows are a real mess( when not using any diffusion).

    The question is will these benefits still be there when the light is diffused.



    Since I never shot anything or had a setup without using the light cube,
    I was wondering your thoughts on this,
    and recommendations as to equipment I would need to get a good set up for this.


    Advice appreciated
