Hi

Saw on TV someone using an open white box thing to act as the background for taking macro shots of his watches. Does anyone know what's that object called, and where I can get one?

Thanks.

That's the Bowens light tent... There's a kit about $1000ish with two lights with light stands...

tis is the sell-it-on-the-net 1 lah, eastgear brought in the light tent from sell-it-on-the-net too... anyway all about the same, as long as the effect is there, who cares wat brand is it?

not sure which 1 did CP brought in, but i think all uses the same OEM one, just branded themselves...
