If you google light box, you will find many different sites that show you how to make them for really cheap. It's basically a box you put your products in and you use two lamp w/ day lightbulbs on both sides for lighting. That's what I use for my stuff. They also have a tut on here somewhere, try searching it here it might come up. I'd search it for you but I'm on my phone. =)

As I am just starting off, I am trying to take as best pics as I can with a digital point and shoot type camera, and I have tried aiming lamps at foam boards to bounce off light but it's just not working and I have issues with shadows. Somewhere here on the board I once saw someone's craft room, and there they had a little table with those reflectors and some sort of lighting set up around it and they had an official set up in their home for just that so I am trying to learn how to create something like this, but also the ability to expand the lighting/photo area for when being modeled. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much!
