This CowboyStudio 20" x 20" Photography Studio Light Box/Tent would be a great addition to your studio. The light tent, which can be used by amateur and professional photographers, makes it easy to take professional digital photos of products and items. It is ideal for online sellers, photography lovers, and collectors. Not only does the material of the tent provide a background for the subject, but it also filters the light from the source, creating a very even, almost shadow-free light across objects inside the tent. This helps to decrease harsh shadows and reflections on shiny objects, such as metal or glass, and gives a clean, crisp backdrop to all items. Its special nylon fabric diffuses the external light, softens shadow, and reduces glare to create the perfect result.
Light tents work well with both film and digital cameras. Be sure to adjust lighting as needed.
Each tent comes with a black, white, dark blue, and red background, as folding into itself to create a carry case.

The only thing I wish this had was some front barn doors to help trap more light and bounce more in from the front angle. I used the box it came in and taped white paper on it to make my own front doors, but later went and bought some foam core white boards to use for the future. Those are only like $1 each, so that wasn't a big deal. All in, I would certainly buy this again!
I AM PLEASED - this is an awesome product for the eBay selling hack that I have become. The four included back drops give me options! Other than steaming out the creases from shipping this product was ready to go out of the box! Assembly was a cinch, the fact that it folds flat for storage is perfect. This review was unsolicited and completely voluntary ~ if you eBay or need to photograph small items buy this product.
My only quibble is that the colored backgrounds have such a delicate pile on the top side of the fabric that even ironing gently at low heat won't completely erase the fold lines from the shape they were shipped in. My recommendation is either to roll them up after low-heat ironing on the back side, using a 2' diameter roll in order to store them, store them lying completely flat with nothing on top of them except each piece, or hanging them fully extended with clips on the edges like you would dry a photograph or hang a tapestry.
For picking up dust that drops onto the felt, DO NOT used a lint roller, as the edges will create permanent line marks in the pile. Instead, roll a piece of tape sticky side out, stick a couple fingers through the center, and roll that gently like a wheel on the pile to clean up small areas.
You can also cut out a piece of cotton velveteen that isn't marked up, sew velcro onto one edge, and use that instead for the background. In any case, I bought this product for the outer shell, so that's what was important to me. YMMV.
First of all, there is no bottom section to it, it just sits on the table or floor, which makes it rather unstable. On top of that, the carrying case that folds it up actually ends up forming the backing and then you can either lay it over the top to block the light from that direction or it sort of awkwardly folds up behind it, it's not too bad, but still annoying.
Finally all the backdrops that come with this are worthless. They arrived heavily creased and no amount of ironing could take them out. I washed them all and hung them to dry and it only got worse from the wash. Instead of being creased, they crinkled all over and, again, no amount of ironing could get it out.
I decided to just roll with it because I edited most of the background on the white anyway so that the wrinkles were hardly noticeable. But the material they are made of has an odd velvet feel and it picks up lint like no one's business I find I had to lint roll it between each photo.
Which meant not only was it annoyingly unsturdy and clunky, I needed to either purchase or make new backdrops.
My main complaint is with the backgrounds. The Velcro strip that connects them to the back of the box is coming off two of them, they attract all sorts of lint, and it is exceptionally difficult to get the wrinkles out of the material. Ironing is a must, but even then it's not going to be perfect. If you have the time, I might suggest purchasing some cloth of your own at the local fabric store; you can decide what material serves you best, then just sew a Velcro strip along one end.
