I am doing alot of photography for my wife for selling stuff on ebay.

Products are usually very reflecrive and range from jewelry, glassware, tea sets etc.

I am not fond of the light boxes where you put the product in side and then try to take a shot through the open side or a zipper entrhy flap, because they are not so easy to work with a long lense. 200mm nikkor macro.

Seems like tungsten lighting with softboxes would work.

Wow! prices do vary on the halogen light set-ups.. I do not need to be mobile so set up and break down are not issues.

Any suggestions or comments to head me in the right direction ?
