    Hey guys I am looking to get a light box to take photos of my watches. Was wondering what some of the brands are that you all use; is Amazon good enough?

    I got a mid-priced on on Amazon. I don’t use it much, and at apx 18x18x18” don’t have the space to keep one set up 24/7 anyway. To do it again, I’d get a larger one

    I did the same, used parchment paper for the "filter" but the holes in my box are larger than Canberra, let in more light.

    Note though that it changes the color of the lights a bit, so you'll need to adjust your white balance.

    Also, my lights are much bigger and brighter than shown in Canberra's post (link) which perhaps amusingly caught the paper on fire. Just a little bit.

    Lately, I've just done without it and put the shades on the lights instead,

    and used a large piece of white posterboard for background. Sample:

    Light-tec boxes are pretty good. They are pricey but you can definitely pick them up on eBay for a majorly reduced rate.
