I bought the supplies for a light box but never actually tried it.
I do mine indoors under sunlight.
Here is one I took today..
and here it is before editing in picasa..
A few tips from a Non professional
I have a regular Sony Cyber shot camera
*I never use flash
*I can only take pics at certain times of the day to get the right sunlight in that one specific spot of the house
*I find a white background is the easiest for editing
Hope that helps!
