    I use a light box one you use for tracing. And white construction paper. It seem to work well.

    I think you will be pleased with it.
    I set my camera for 2 second delay. I also let the lights warm up for a minute as well.
    A lot of my picture are done with this set-up. And I always use those lights.

    Galen are you saying the right one has less flash the the left . It looks darker. I'd leave flash where it was. How about taking pictures of sulphides I find there the hardest to picture.

    Okay I did some test with the flash.

    Here's No tent, just the lights:


    Here's Tent with the 2 lights:


    And finally, the Tent with the 2 lights and stock camera flash:


    Seems the flash makes it appear 2D. Notice the background.

    My kit only came with blue and white backgrounds; they have a plastic/sheen to them, so I don't use them.
    I think Galen's kit came with more colors, plus they are cloth. Right Galen?
    That grey is a scarf that was used for shipping marbles I purchase a few months ago. It's almost R-B-G 128-128-128 in photoshop. So I use it for my backgrounds.
