  3. Position two lamps on either of the enclosed sides of the photo tent. Turn the lamps on. Point them directly at the box. Move them around until they light the object in a way that is visually pleasing to you. If you want you can add a boom light which is a light that hangs over the top of the box. This light serves to make the object stand out from the background. Don't let the light hang into the box if your photo tent has an open top.
  4. Set up your tripod in front of the box. Attach your camera to the tripod.
  5. Focus the camera on the object in the box. Make sure you can't see the outside of the box in the viewing area.

Overall, this is a nice kit, especially considering what you get for the price. It is not something that you'll be able to take on safari or rapidly deploy for an emergency photo shoot, but for the "average" user who is looking for a decent quality home/small business lighting kit, this will do.

Regarding my caveat of "considering what you get for the price", the equipment in the kit is not heavy duty but seems to be well-constructed. The light tripods definitely are not Manfrotto carbon composites and would not react well to being abused, but they hold the lights up and are steady.

The lamp shades are lightweight aluminium that would easily flatten if you were to sit on it or otherwise mistreat it, but again, it does what it is supposed to do and assumes you're not a combat eBay photographer.

The kit folds up and stores easily in the supplied carrying bag, which is surprisingly heavy duty. There is more than enough extra space in the bag for additional backdrops, reflectors, power cords or whatever else you would want to bring with you for a shoot of this nature.

Overall, I am happy with the purchase. If I were going to be doing professional-grade product photography I would probably go spend more money, but for what I need it for, it is just right.

Lights are very bright. Comes with a nice carrying case.

I also purchased the 1200 watt CowboyStudio Continuous Lighting Kit with four 85 watt bulbs ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004C867R6/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) and this "tabletop" kit came with the same stands, so I'm not sure what sort of table would be big enough to hold these, but I set them up on the ground and used them the same way I used the umbrella kit from CowboyStudio and it worked great.

I got both kits and the total was around $220 plus shipping and together they produce 2000 watts total. It was more than enough light for the product photography I am using them for, however I had to purchase a roll of paper from Adorama because the photos I took with products inside the light tent came out very flat. I've done a lot of research and apparently using a long piece of paper curved down makes the item appear to be floating in air or at least makes the background look as if it continues on to infinity. When I used the light tent the fabric of the tent was clearly visible in the photograph as were the creases in the material and the stitching and the time it would take to edit that stuff would be ridiculous, so hopefully the roll of paper will work.

But overall with the 800 watt CowboyStudio kit I am very happy. The only thing I wish was different would be the stands which are a bit on the weak/lightweight side, but it's not the end of the world. For $115 it is a great deal, in my opinion.

I bought this kit because I needed something to use when photographing small items. I was really impressed with the light that came from this little kit. It lit up all of my products and the tent was the perfect size. The light diffused great and the videos they have were a great help when trying to fold the tent back down for storage. I would definitely recommend this product to other photographers. It's the perfect kit for the perfect price!

The first time this product came, the light fixture was broken. The second time it came, one of the bulbs didn't work. I'll be avoiding this brand in the future.

This is a great kit. It has almost everything someone who periodically take casual object photos needs. If it had an overhead boom light included it would be perfect. But, for the price and the completeness, it's generally perfect for what I need.

Note: the lights are not quite as powerful as I expected and I'll probably replace them with something more powerful when they die.
