    Just reply with "Yes". Then when he issues the refund say, "I've considered it, but don't feel right about changing my feedback."

    I've looked at doing something like that for smaller items. If I understand what your'e suggesting, it would be a scaled down version of this type of thing:

    I figure the table would need to be at least 30 x 36 (40) to make it work. I would say 8 6500k t8 fluorescents. Or, order one of these stations.

    Careful, if the under light is too bright it'll wash out your picture

    I'm thinking of just taking stuff outdoors and photographing there...being obsessed with the perfect white background is getting me nowhere, my camera loses the white balance setting all the time, and outdoor pics (with a decent background) look nicer to me in most cases. Would be a huge pain to make that switch, since I've set up an entire room dedicated to pics, far from a door to outside...and it would limit me to daytime & sunshine...so I dunno.

    unfortunately doing this part time, while holding down a full time job requires us to minimize variables. You could lose a week of posting by having a rainy weekend. at least in your room today you have consistency.

    Brian and hbkshin have mastered the white background.

    Agreed - if I weren't so lazy I could be taking pics right now no matter the weather. Plus in the winter it'd almost be dark this time of day after work.

    I'm envious of the whites those two have achieved!

    I'd say "pop-over"...with French cuffs - new one on me.

    Update - received said hangers, and they exceeded my expectations. I figured they'd be junk, and all tossed into a box and get scratched up. Ended up receiving a 19-pound box via FedEx ground today. Large box (24" x 15" x 15"). Packing material on top / sides. Each hanger individually wrapped. A few have some slight "impressions" - from being at the bottom of the box. Yanked on the hook pretty hard and it did not pop out, solid wood, did not twist. Heard from another SF member that the price has gone up to $30 and they prefer to go straight thru PayPal (not surprising - I can't see how they made any money at $25 and free shipping, after eBay & PayPal fees). I'm more than happy with these and am pleasantly surprised. YMMV - I assume they sell the same hangers, pack well, ship FedEx but cannot say. Gonna use them for the nice leathers I got from @SpooPoker and other natural shoulder jackets - SC / suit hangers leave pointy shoulders.
