    Its gonna need some tweeks like paper instead of a sheet. Once the metal work was done I got bored and in a hurry.

    I know, my shop needs some tidying up

    First shots. Sorry its the closest thing I have to bling. I wanted to try getting shots through glass and high reflective surfaces.

    Excellent, Buckshot! I've often thought a light box would be handy but have never persued it. I'm now rethinking that.

    Yes it is. It helps the lighting in a big way so that you dont have the massive bright flash. Taking shots of reflective stuff is kinda difficult to get a good result. Saje has done a great job with her lightbox shots. The soft all around light makes the photos much more appealing.

    OK Buckshot, I don't know if I can look at another light box without that thought in my mind!
