Not sure how to make a white box, but I'm sure there are DIY tips online. Not crazy bout the wheels.

What exactly are you trying to acheive? Have you got a pic to compare it to?

If you want JUST the wheel standing, you will want a bigger light tent or lightbox.

You will also want a few light sources, I would go for a flash system rather than modelling lights and fire them from sides and behind equally to eliminate cross shadows.

You could get away with high powered halogen lights from your local home depot but be careful not to burn anything down.

Nice work but while balance seems a bit off. Easily fixable though. Good light distribution there.

Yes I agree, and I really needed a bigger box as I was getting a cast from the yellow walls in the room. but it was a bit of fun for a few hours, and something I can put together quickly for when I want to shift something on eBay.

That said I have done a few stock photos with it for a website.

hmm...no 'fense...it just looks like a step down from the original pic...too much noise (and color noise).

This is the most cheapest way to make a light box. This one isn't very big for wheels like you want to shoot, but it will do the trick on most product's
