Who else uses a photography tent cube? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
I have one but have yet to use it for my cakes! *holds head in shame*
post #17 of 27
My set is by Cowboy Studio. My husband purchased this cube for me. When he bought it, the kit came with the cube and the lights.

http://www.amazon.com/XPRO-inchx36-Studio-Photography-Light/dp/B000BFYXGG/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1389360711&sr=1-1&keywords=cowboy+studio+popup+tent+with+lights

Any of my pictures with a solid white, red, blue, or black background are used with the backdrops. I do not always use the cube and the lights, depending on the size of the cake or the amount of natural light I have (or how lazy I am feeling).

Hope this helps!

There are times when I think I can help. Other times I think, given an already shallow gene pool, I am doing more for humanity by just letting go...

I got one for xmas and love it!!  I'm yet to try a bigger sized cake in there yet like a wedding cake, but my tent is quite big.

 

here's a photo of one of my cakes in the tent but excuse the bottom of the pic as it has a crease which is where I hadn't got round to ironing the backdrop before using it:

Thanks Lea17: You cake is so cute and the colors are bright.  The photo looks professional.

Brenda549, I've been searching for a kit, but the only 36 x 36 ones I could find were like the one in your link.  I was concerned that the rounded edges on the bottom lip of the tent would make it difficult to get a cake inside the tent.  Also, (aside from the supports) it appears to be made with all vinyl materials.  How sturdy is it when you put a cake inside?  Thanks so much for your post, because I had ruled this kit out, but it now seems like a good option.

Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy one of these? Thanks!

It is difficult to get cakes that are more than 2 tiers into in for pictures, but I typically photograph those at the venue.  The cube pulls taunt when it pops out.  The differen colored backgrounds are attached with velcro.  I have not had any issues with it when it comes to sturdiness or stability.

Brenda 549, thanks so much for the feedback, that's really helpful!  I think I'm going to purchase a 40" one to try to accommodate some of my larger cakes.

 

SweetShop, I've found some reasonably-priced ones on Amazon.  Depending on the size, you may have several sellers with different prices to choose from.
