Let me start off by saying, I'm not a photographer. If I was, I would've purchase a light tent, instead of making one a couple of years ago. At the time a light tent was $100, and I could easily make one for a few dollars.

I bought a pop-open mesh hamper from WalGreens for $1.99, and some white cloth from the scrap pile for a couple of bucks. I removed the mesh from the hamper, and hot glued the white cloth around the hamper. I cut a piece of white construction paper for the bottom, and curving up into the back, for a seamless white background.

For lights I'm using GE Reveal light bulbs.

What do you use for photographing your collection?

Here's a cheaper and much faster version. The white plastic of the milk jug does a nice job of difussing the light. All you need for this project is a pair of scissors, and an empty milk jug. This took less than a minute to make. (Excluding the time it took to drink the milk) :)
