    Hi, I'm trying to figure out what sort of lighting to use for photographing pool cues. They are challenging because they are very reflective, long, and skinny. At first I was thinking about getting a couple of continuous light soft-boxes, but then I came across a 60" light tent. What would be ideal for superb product illumination with minimal glare? Any advice/recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Justin

    Get the book, "Light: Science and Magic" by Hunter, Biver and Faqua. It explains all about how to use light for most types of photography.
