Light box

I finally made myself a light box for photography!! 
I've seen many tutorials on the web but put it to the back of my to-do list. Well, now it's to-done.  It may not be the prettiest light box but I didn't have to buy a thing.

I have to show you the huge difference that it makes even without adding any additional light from a lamp.

This was a picture I took yesterday on my sofa table. 
I thought the dark wood of the table would really make the vintage ornaments pop
And they do...but not in the way I was really looking for.

Now look at this picture taken inside the light box!

What a difference!

I'm definitely going to have much better photos from now on...at least for the small stuff.

Now I just need to figure out where to store it so it doesn't get damaged or dirty but is still very accessible.

If I had a better camera, I might look into making one of these. You are right! That light box really DOES make a difference. Wowser!

Once I started using a lightbox (my first one was homemade too) I couldn't go back to taking pics without one! You are going to LOVE this! The only problem I had was it didn't fit my scrapbook pages so hubby broke down and bought me a BIG fold up one!

I used a 3 sided white backround (that kids buy for school science projects- I'm thinking a box may actually work better - great photos!!!

Yay you Halle!

you are selling me on a light box...I think WHERE I would keep one might have been one of the stumbling blocks

Sure made a big difference in your ornie pics!
