    Default First attempt with a light box...

    and a round, black subject on a black surface...

    how does it overall look? definitely a LOT more room for improvements. I need advice and comments for improvements.

    how i did it: DIY Light box using translucent white, corrugated plastic board from Popular, with a black surface. 1 x speedlight on commander mode, M at 1/10, triggered by On board flash. Placed to the bottom left of the picture inside the box, angled upwards for an interior bounce.

    give it to me. I can take it all. as long as its constructive.

    Considering it's a DIY setup - pretty good!
    Exposure, clarity and balance all there (disclaimer: I'm no flash expert).
