I have found that I get really good lighting from my two OTT lights. (OTTLite.com
) I used to take pics in front of the sunny window at work, and accidentally found that I got better pictures when I took the pics right under my ott lights on my desktop. No light box needed! I happen to have two lights because the lighting in my studio is terrible and I can't see colors in there. These lights create a very clear, clean light where I can see everything no matter what time of the day/night I am working in. The pictures are a bonus! I bought both of my lights at Michaels when they were on sale 50 off.
