Hi!
i need some advice.
I want to take a nice photos of my watches collection. and perhaps sell them.
So i need to do product photography setup.
Read online about it. it seems that it can be done with just a light tent and lights

as for light tent: I'm not sure if there any cheap brands? are there any places that i can rent/buy?

Lights: does anyone know if it can be done by alternatives besides using two sb-600 flashes as i dont have 2.


Thanks alot for the help! =)

Light tents are cheap. They cost around $50 for a decent sized one in Singapore.

You can make do with one flash, just use a flash cord and set up the flash inside the light tent instead of outside. point it 45 deg up and let the flash light bounce around.

This are sample pics I shot using single off camera SB-600 inside the light tent.
