    Hi,
    A friend built for me two flash trigger. I want to take product photos, but I think is hard to put each flash in light tent. And of course, I want to achieve pure white background (spot metering). Is possible for me to put something before flash to correct shadow problem and leave the light tent alone? Or someone has a better idea for me ?

    I have 3 flash, two trigger and one in camera.
    Thanks!

    Depends on the size of your light tent. I just use a piece of paper and a little stand I made. One flash with a white shoot through umbrella to kill the shadows and one bounced off the cieling to help any leftovers.

    Your gonna have to adjust all your settings manually until it looks right. Remember that your SS really wont do much so just set that at highest sync speed for the camera. Then adjust how powerfull the flashes are by changing the aperture.

    The tracing paper is not good to cover the flash front ? Thanks!

    Just put the flash outside of the light tent. That's the purpose of the light tent, to diffuse the light.
