I purchased a light tent with 3 lights and one small & one big tent from Ebay. IMHO ditch the tent. I made my own light box with white poster board. for some reason I was NOT getting the true white background using the light tent. At first I thought it was the materials from the tent (nylon I think) so I made my own white backdrop using white thick cotton. It was okay but not the best. If you can get the right light source, you really don't need a tent. There are tuts on the net on how to make a light box and they are relatively cheap in cost. I made one from a tut I found online when I first started my business back in April, I decided to upgrade and buy a "pro" lighting kit during the summer, only to revert to my old light box. I do like the lamps though...they come in handy especially if you can adjust the height on them..HTH
