Looking for information and guidance on purchasing a macro studio tent kit with lighting. Found a Cubelite that comes with a table. Need to purchase lights separately though. Curious to know others' experience. Thanks, Katie

You can see a few table-top set-ups scattered through-out these pages: http://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-32754-1.html

I got one of these years ago when it cost a loot less. Nothing fancy, but it's good for taking pictures of small things, and it folds up into its own case.

Hi Katie I have made my own tent and revolving stage and all that kind of stuff but still looking for desktop led lighting. The ones I have found are either to large or run to hot for safety. If you find a supplier please let me know. Thanks. REJ

Search "tabletop photo studio" on Amazon and Ebay. Here is the type of kit I bought several years ago and has worked very well for me.

If you want to go really cheap, get a large translucent white garment bag, hang it so the bottom is on the floor or a tabletop, and use desk lamps or clamp lights shining through from the outside for illumination.

That one is nice and would certainly meet OP's needs. However one very nice feature of the studio I have is that it includes an integral carrying case. When I am not using mine it folds up into itself in a package 24"x24"x1", with pockets on the outside so I can also store my lights, extension cords, spare bulbs etc. in one small package and store it out of the way as one piece.
