Excellent! Did you get a lightbox? Great pics. Got any profile shots of the meterman too? ;)
A few favorites from milkyspit, McGizmo, Surefire, MR Bulk and others

Here at Flashlight-Forums we put the "FUN" in "DYSFUNCTIONAL."

I built a simple Light Tent out of a cardboard box. I found these plans, Super Simple Light Tent.

The cloth material cost me about $9.00 at Walmart. You can use paper and glue it on the 3 cut-outs on the cardboard box but I wanted the option of removing the "diffuser" material so I just layed the cloth over the cut openings.                                                                                                               

I bought 2 lamps at Walmart for $12.00.

I ordered 2 CFL (Compact Flourescent Lights, Spiral) lamps from a Bulb Supply Company on the internet for about $13.00. You need to to order daylight rated CFL's. Mine are rated at 6500 Kelvin. 5500 Kelvin should be OK to use. I tried the regular CFL's for household use but the pics come out on the brown side.

I found the cardboard I lay the lights on at Costco. It is scrap cardboard they use to separate the Charmin Toilet Paper bulk rolls.

I built 2 stands out of some scrap Oak I had.



These are very simple stands I built out of scrap Oak.

Very impressive!  Both the light tent AND the various angles of that gorgeous, most-photo'd Meterman.  8)
