In choosing a light-tent for product photography, I noticed the cost difference between various sizes is only a few dollars, so I started considering a larger tent than I presently need. The question then is:
Other than the space it takes, are there any disadvantages to using a larger-then-needed light-tent?
My present goal is to photographs photo gear (cameras, lenses, camera bags, etc) with as much of a seamless and shadowless background as possible. The tent will be illuminated from several directions including underneath. For the moment, a 36" cube will do but I see that it costs almost the same to get a 48" or 60" cube. How does this impact how diffuse and seamless the background appears?
