      I've found this light shed to be exactly what I needed for my occasional tabletop shooting needs. Construction is of reasonably good quality and the light transmission and diffusion is excellent. The included cloth backdrops (once you iron the creases out of them) are very effective for getting solid black and white backgrounds while maintaining good exposure on the subject-- just white balance the camera and go. I was able to get solid whites with only two relatively small lights. The plexi bottom sheets included for shooting on a light table actually work nicely to get a little reflection going if you put a sheet of white paper under them. The openings provide reasonably good access to the interior, I managed to shoot martinis in here without spilling. The whole thing collapses easily for storage in the included carry bag. While there is zero documentation included, you'd honestly have to be pretty clueless to need it-- you just pop it open, attach the velcro hooks on the drops to the velcro loops in the shed interior, and shoot.

      My one gripe with this product is that the bottom is suspended above the surface you place it on top of by the sides, meaning that it droops in at the center, and even with the plexi plates in there nothing sits flat. You can overcome this easily by putting a book or other 1" thick object under your shed so that bottom beneath your subject rests on that, but it is still an annoyance. The fabric is fairly thin and suspended at a high tension, so I can't imagine the longevity of this product will be that great, but given the very reasonable price I don't see this as a deal-breaker. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who needs to do tabletop shooting without the benefit of a dedicated studio environment.

      I've used this shed for about three months now, and I've gotten fabulous results each time. But the material is absurdly thin, and the stitching very poor. After perhaps a dozen setup-takedown cycles, the fabric is tearing at the seams in several places. Now, this was also quite inexpensive for what it is, so even if it fails after another three or four shoots I won't weep over it by any means. But having gear that does not hold up is a frustration to me, and I'd have gladly paid a bit more for a better-built iteration of the same basic design. When it comes time to replace this I will look elsewhere.

            Use it to photograph insects, flowers, and small natural objects like shells, rock samples, etc. I use a ring flash on the camera and two small battery operated lights on the sides to create a nice portable mini studio that I can transport to different venues.

            Pretty good value for your money, big enough for most needs, carrying bag does feel a little flimsy and I do suggest you unpack it before the day you'll need it since it is a little more wrinkly than you would expect and 5 minutes with the iron will definitely save you some time in Photoshop

                          I'm a professional woodworker and use the Ligt Shed for photographing my smaller work. The lighting has to be precise in order for the wood grain to "pop". The Light Shed defuses effectively producing a rich and detailed image.

                                        I am using this digital light shed to photograph my products for my website. I was referred to this product by a graphic designer who is teaching me to use this so that I can get professional results sooner than later. The fact that he would use this himself sold me immediately! The light shed is easy to use and the components set up and break down quickly making travel with it a snap. The light shed makes it possible for me to get professional results on my limited budget as an emerging company. I won't forget the companies who helped me along the way when I make it to the top!

                                            Good value and fine for very small objects. It is hard to work with the inserts, difficult to get smooth backgrounds. Easy to access the shed for product setups but not particularly stable when shooting vertically.

                                                I sell vintage costume jewelry online, so good pictures are essential, and reflections and light scatter are perennial problems - which a good light shed has practically eliminated. Plus it's so easy to set up and take down!

                                                    I've used this shed for about three months now, and I've gotten fabulous results each time. But the material is absurdly thin, and the stitching very poor. After perhaps a dozen setup-takedown cycles, the fabric is tearing at the seams in several places. Now, this was also quite inexpensive for what it is, so even if it fails after another three or four shoots I won't weep over it by any means. But having gear that does not hold up is a frustration to me, and I'd have gladly paid a bit more for a better-built iteration of the same basic design. When it comes time to replace this I will look elsewhere.
