Daily Pic, First Photo With Light Tent

So I didn't do the DYI light tent. I ended up buying one at the local camera store. Knowing how I am, I figured I would of spent close to as much as I paid for a new one. More on that in another post when there's more time to write. For now here is the first photo I took with the new light tent !
I'm using the light tent to shoot jewelry but thought I'd try this first. I took a few shots of jewelry and they came out o.k. When I set it up at the job and start shooting , I'll post some pictures and how I shot them.

DYI Projects

Whenever I do a DYI project it ends up costing me almost as much as if I would go out and by the finished product. Over the next week I plan on building a small light box / light tent for taking pictures of jewelry. I'm doing research on the project, and trying to make it as durable and affordable as possible.

I've seen a few different plans with some cheap solutions. So I think I'm going to combine a few DYI instructions and try to come up with something cool. I'll post the tutorial here, along  with some pictures and different ideas. Hopefully this doesn't end up costing me more than if I just purchased the damn thing from the store :)
