Also the difference between the two pics above are the bottom one is using two pieces of white translucent pieces of cloth which allow the lights to go through them, thus "evenly" spreading the light and softening it.
The top photo, they are using just whiteboard and bouncing the light off the sides. That is why they are having to run the two lights through the front.
The camera has flash but I'm not using it. I have lights on opposite ends of the box that pass through translucent cloth. Elmer's Foam Core Board
is what I use for the box along with some white wrapping paper for the background.
