Light Tent

I've been taking all my craft photos just using what England calls natural light (not much sun around lately) and a couple of bits of white scrapbook card. They look OK but not really good enough, especially when trying to sell on Etsy.  So I thought I'd invest in a pop-up light tent.  
I found one pretty cheap on eBay and have just been experimenting with it.   Although they do still need a little bit of a touch-up in Photoshop, the results are so much better. 

Before:

You can see there are harsh lines and contrasting colour where the two pieces of card meet, plus the colour isn't great and there are shadows. 

After:

The background does show a little where the fabric gets folded and still ends up slightly different colours after Photoshopping, but overall it is a much better photo. 

This is the first time I have used the tent and I am pleased with the results. I just need some more practice with lighting and camera position etc.

I am always trying to learn new techniques and improve my cardmaking and colouring skills, so your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.
Many thanks, Nicola x
