    I like the RAW shot taken with the 45 watt CFL bulb with Auto White Balance.

    The Cowboystudio CFL did turn out better than I expected. The spiral tube design of this bulb screams out for a deep reflector. Such a reflector can be bought, and I did use one, but this reflector is not usually supplied with the studio light kits for beginners.

    I have a softbox but did not use it here because it could have added its own color tint. In any event softboxes are more appropriate to portrait photography than tabletop.
