Light Box - why you shouldn't buy one!

When it comes to jewellery photography, first thing that comes in your mind usually is a light tent. You can buy them very cheaply on ebay. Also the well-known brands will offer a range of options usually at a higher price than their low-end rivals. The problem with these is that they’re not going to get your best shots however, they are a great way to shoot many items quickly but you risk to end up spending hours in post.
