    Can someone give me the rundown on what to look for in a good shooting table? What lights are best (are we still using strobes for this or constant-on?) Softboxes? Never done this before, but I've been thinking of it lately. Any advice to get started doing basic product shots would be great.

    Thanks!

    Depends what size of products you're looking to shoot, but you can usually get away with a plain ol' kitchen table and a light tent of some sort. You can go DIY or you can get B&H's. I hear it's pretty good.

    Throw some posterboard under that, a strobe/flash (unmodified) on one side or both, and you're good to go.

    We're still using strobes. Nothing works as well.
