Trey,

I'm in need of a good light box for doing some photography (pistols and rifles). Can you post some specs. (and photos) of yours? Thanks!

Chip, I don't have a light box, I painted a wall white, put down a white window shade, and set up four clip-on shop lights with 'daylight/sunlight' type curly bulbs. I'll post some pics when I get a chance. Trey

Great, thanks Trey. I thought I'd seen a light box set up of yours that you once used to photograph George's pistols for the antiques book. Maybe I was thinking of someone else.

The light boxes are available on EBay I think. I know a friend who purchased his on line and they are NOT expensive.

Thanks for the Adorama information. When we were living in the NYC area, we bought lots of photo equipment from them. Good prices and service.
