I have been having some trouble lately with my current figure photography lighting setup. The problem was that it took me about 30 minutes to adjust the lamps, the diffuser and the reflectors to get the right lighting. It was annoying for me sometimes and I started looking for an alternative. I came across a light tent but those cost over $100 dollars. So, I made my own using regular household items.
What I like about the light box is that when you use a white background, it has a floating effect to it. Honestly, I think that the light box has much better lighting than my old setup. I'm still going to use my old setup from time to time because with the light box, I can't get dark shots. So, what kind of lighting setup do you use when you do your figure photograhpy?
