    Fore the photos in my albums here at WUS I used my bathtub to bounce around a flash from a Nikon SB-800 that I used of camera with the Nikon creativ lighting system.

    Re: DIY Light box/tent.

    Lightbox is a great utility for product photos. It reveals a good amount of details from the object. It also breaks light and gives a soft surrounding light into the box. Lightbox is best used outside in a good lightning.

    It's background can be modified to any color. Usually it's white or black. Direction of light is also swtichable since it's a box.

    I don't have any photos of my box right now but in my signature I have couple photos (links to bigger images) shot inside the box.

    EDIT: Almost forgot to mention. Large aperture highlights details even more and gives the object "calm" look. And there is no distracting bokeh visible in the background.

    When in a hurry, this always works wonders:

    Not as flexible as a real lightbox, but your photo's wont suffer from it.
