Review of the Photek Product Shooting Tent
Here's the challenge. You have to photograph small items for Ebay or for clients' brochures. Lighting them can be challenging. Small reflective items usually exhibit specular highlights that must be controlled. If you add a product/shooting tent to the equation, your job is made dramatically easier.
A product tent is made of the same translucent cloth material that is used for diffusers. And that's just what it does. It diffuses the light around the product to show it at its best.
To photograph the product, place it inside the tent and position the light source outside the tent as close as you can get without touching the material to avoid a risk of fire. You then completely seal the tent except for a small opening for the camera lens to peak through to take the shot. If you connect your digital camera to a monitor, you can get easier, instant feedback to make fine adjustments to your set up.
Product tents differ in size and accessories, as well as the number, placement, size and type of openings. All of these should be considered when selecting a tent best suited for your needs.
The first consideration is the size of tent you need. Smaller tents are easier to work with and are less expensive, but larger ones allow you to shoot bigger products, as well. Larger tents are more difficult to work with when photographing smaller objects. Because you shoot from one side of the tent towards the other, you have to go back and forth as you adjust the product and then check it through the lens or monitor. If you have a lot of products to photograph, this process becomes tedious and tiring. Storage of larger tents is not an issue because they all collapse to minimal sizes.
Most tents come with accessories such as "sweeps" that serve as the background for the item. Sweeps come in different colors: black helps to prevent shadows on the background and provides separation from the item being photographed. White gives a smooth surface for the object (instead of the tent's seams and zippers). Sweeps come in other colors for variety. Another standard accessory is a removable plastic sheet that forms a rigid base. Extra accessories that can be purchased separately include stands, holding wax, and composition plates to help you consistently place your products when shooting more than one.
The next factor to consider when choosing a shooting tent is the number and placement of openings. Although they increase the price, more openings give you additional options to get the best angle for your product. The type of openings also is a feature to think about. The flaps for openings can be sealed by Velcro or zippers. Deciding on this option is purely a matter of personal preference except that Velcro openings can be more completely closed around both sides of the lens. Larger openings allow you to more easily work with the product in the tent; however, the flaps for those openings are more difficult to close.
One tent that addresses most of these issues well is the Photek Digital Lighthouse Shooting Tent. It comes in four sizes from 10.5 x 10.5 x 13.5 up to 24" x 24" x 36." Prices range from $46.95 to $117.95 at B&H Photo Video.
The large one has both zippered and Velcro closures, and comes with a plastic form and two sweeps - one black and one white. The tent easily sets up and just as easily folds flat to slip into the included convenient storage bag. Other accessories such as stands, holding wax, and composition plates are available separately.
The Photek sweeps attach to Velcro strips on the inside of the tent. This is a great option; however, the Photek tent's strips are set only so that a sweep can be placed lengthwise. If your product needs to be shot horizontally, you must pin the sweep or other backing to the tent to hide the seams. Otherwise, you can remove the seams in Photoshop. The tent has fewer openings for handling the product and for the camera lens when shooting horizontally, as well. When shooting vertically, the Photek tent works extremely well. The placement, size and number of openings in that direction are ample.
Most of the Photek tent's openings are sealed by Velcro. Since the tent is stretched tightly when set up, it is sometimes hard to re-close the flaps. This is not a design flaw, but rather a necessary result when using the translucent fabric.
Overall, the Photek Shooting Tent performs favorably. Each of the factors that go into making a tent functional has its pros and cons. Photek's tent balances those extremes well. When photographing small items, a product tent such as Photek's will give your photos that enviable professional look with little effort.

Tips for Better Vacation Photos
Photos are a great way to share your travel experiences with family and friends. Here are a few suggestions to help you capture vacation memories you will treasure for years to come.
Take Spectacular Nighttime Photos with your Digital Camera - Part I
Night photographs express a special something that cannot be seen in normal daytime photography. Whether it is a photograph of a moon and starlit sky over a windy deserted beach, the excitement of a downtown cityscape when the lights go on, or just a picture of you and some friends in front of a favorite hangout, nighttime photos, when done right, are sure to attract attention.
Digicam File Formats
Looking at the digital camera, a person can visualize it as a combination of a camera along with a miniature computer system that stores the images as files or sets of bits, rather than a chemically treated film. Thus it comes to be a fact that there are certain file formats in which these images of the photographs captured by the camera are stored.
Use A Tripod!
Using a tripod is essential when taking photos - and not just for night shots. To get ultra crisp and sharp pictures, your camera cannot move at all when the shutter is open.

How a Digital Camera Works
The digital camera is not something of a magic box that came out of the blue and made wonders! The digital camera is very much like the conventional analog camera, but the technology has been altered. It also contains most of the associated components that the conventional camera contains, like lens and a shutter for letting in light, however instead of reaching a photosensitive film, the light is made to fall upon array of image sensors or photosensitive cells.
