The Mrs is setting up a ebay/online shop. Most suppliers have images she can use but a couple don't.

I got her a small soft light box effort but i think she needs some more lighting. Would a couple of simple desk lamps like THIS work? If positioned behind the side walls?

Any advice welcomed

Lamp infront at this angle /
another the other side of it \

Using thses bulbs; http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-interfit-int042-32w-fluorescent-lamp/p1525282?cm_mmc=googlebase-extension-_-studio-accessories-_-studio-accessories-_-interfit-int042-32w-fluorescent-lamp_1525282&utm_source=googlebase-extension&gclid=ckdtol2ljlkcfcfjtaodxckagq

The desk lights would work, but probably have to adjust lighting within photoshop to get rid of the orange etc.

should be able to shoot with any bulb as long as you shoot a custom white balance set off a grey card.

What camera is she using?

Just a normal digi camera. Obviously shes not gonna get professional results but thats fine for the time being.

I'll get some lights and give it a go.

it doesn't matter matey, chances are the camera won't support what i just suggested. Go with what alex said and try and get the colour as right as you can before you take any shots

Important thing to remember is that too much light can be as bad as having too little as the colours will look washed out etc so it can be a fine balance. Because the lamps will be on or off with no adjustment, moving them away from the softbox with bring the light down Don't get too involved with getting everything perfect, simple is normally better

what products are they if you don't mind me asking?

My best piece of advice is buy a little tripod if you have poor light and let the camera do the exposure work. If you attach the tripod to the camera, put the self timer on then push the shutter you will get nice sharp pictures

My bit of advise is to throw your phone in the sea and enjoy your holiday . I haven't paid you to spend it on roaming . Unless its roaming to a pub
