    I'm very new to photography, and I've been looking for a way to shoot small items in effective light.

    And example would be the following.



    The first one is not what I want, whereas the second one is done pretty well.

    Great lighting conditions etc.

    How do I do this?

    I have seen a small kind of "tent" in a photography magazine about 2 weeks ago. I took an out of focus photo of it.

    Which can be found here.

    Also another out of focus photo of the difference.

    Now I can't get this where I am, and if I have to import it, it's gonna cost a lot of money.

    How would I make one like this for myself?

    And what addons would be suggested?

    Or even just a solution to my "problem" :)

    Thanks for any help :)

    Here is a link to a build it yourself lightbox. I have seen some great results from some online photo friends. I would like to build one myself, but I don't really have the space to store it and I can't stand clutter. One day I'll get over that and build one.
