      The lightbox results looks great! Out of curiosity, what are you using for your side lights and how are you diffusing the light?

      Well here's the funny part...there's nothing so fancy involved. The box is white foamcore poster board with a straight back and the sides angled about 45 degrees to the wider front of the box. No walls on the top or front. There is a 4 foot fluorescent work light above the box on the workbench but I believe that is providing minimal effect. I am simply setting the camera on a tripod, stopping down to minimum aperture, and using a remote to activate the D40 with its bare built-in flash. The flash seems to bounce around enough inside the box to get a good diffused look. Of course with this setup if there is any surface parallel to the flash I do get a huge hotspot, so eventually I will figure out sidelighting and diffusion.
