    for umbrellas, reflectors, etc you might want to buy from ebay. I'm buying all such staff from ebay and never had any problems. Saved quite a few $ too.

    what kind of lights are you looking for?
    why do you need umbrellas, how big is your subject?
    and what kind of light effect do you want to create?

    used to have a regular MO for them in MO section, but after the revamp. They are no longer are no longer around due to a change in policy. Maybe you can post a WTB in buy and sell section.

    light tent is not a miracle pill for still life. We do want some control of hilights and shadows, harsh/soft lighting depending on the mood or feel you want to create.
