What Is a Light Tent and How Is It Used When Taking Photographs?

A light tent is a translucent fabric tent which diffuses incoming light, any objects placed within the tent will not exhibit surface reflection. If you have ever wanted to take a photograph of a highly reflective object without capturing any reflections from the object’s surface then a light tent would help you to achieve the image you require. Light tents are often used when photographing jewellery or precious stones for product catalogues. Using macrophotography techniques along with a light tent can produce extremely detailed images without distracting surface reflections.
