Light tent

A light tent, also called a light cube or photo tent, is a portable and collapsible device used for creating soft and diffused lighting in small object photography. It consists of a fabric box with a removable front panel, and one or more openings for inserting the camera lens. The interior of the tent is lined with a reflective material, such as white nylon or silver mylar, which helps to distribute the light evenly and reduce shadows. Light tents are ideal for product shots, macro photography, and other applications that require a controlled and uniform lighting setup.
