~UPDATE~
If you're just joining this thread, keep reading. There's been some changes to the original box design and a few more designs posted by other members.

~UPDATE #2~

a mountain or an animal unless I absolutely need a 'record shot'. My first thought is always of light. -Galen Rowell

They do get hot, but I just leave them on until I'm done with the shoot. Maybe 5-10 minutes or so.

Thanks everyone. I need to get some black paper for the background and try that next.

Yep.. same rain. :)
The roll of easel paper was $5, and the lights were $10 each.

My wife came home from shopping and saw what I was up to. She said she's been thinking about putting one of her Coach purses on ebay and asked me to shoot it. It barely fit in the box and the crop was super tight, but it worked.

Canon 350/xt ,50mm 1.8, Sigma 17-70mm, Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro, Sigma Super Flash Canon Backpack, Ebay tubes (awesome), Cheap tripod and a Sony DSC-S40 and a lot of hope and dreams of more gear.

And in 3 Months either a Canon 70-200 f/4 or a 70-300 IS still debating.

The camera needed to be lower on this shot.
