If you’re looking for smooth, even, studio lighting of small objects–like items you want to list on eBay–this inexpensive laundry-hamper hack yields a light tent for a mere $5.
At DIYPhotography they share a simple hack that starts with a collapsible wire and mesh laundry hamper and ends with collapsible light tent with upgraded side panels. You’ll need a dollar store laundry hamper, a cheap white table cloth, and a white poster board, as well as some scissors, pliers, and a stapler.
