I have been wanting to make my very own light box for quite sometime
and today seemed like as good a time as any.
So yesterday afternoon I let my fingers do the walking
on the computer and found a
vast amounts of do it yourself light boxes.
This is the one I decided to use!
Here are a couple photos of hubby helping me make mine.
Cardboard box,Poster board,Tissue, and tape
Tools: T-square, exacto knife, scissors
I didn’t have any NEW tissue paper so we made do. Hubby is trying to make it as tight as possible without ripping it.
Here is a side view of the tissue taped.
Here is the final product. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world,
but hey, I am the only one that will have to look at it!
Inside they suggest you take a piece of poster board and lay it carefully…almost
like a slide, so that there are no creases in the photo. I do have it taped on the top of the box
so that it doesn’t slide down.
Here it is ready to go in my son’s bedroom!
I think I need a light on top! 😦
If you have any questions at all let me know!
I sure hope this improves my photos!!!
I still need to get special light bulbs.
Here are the first two photos I took today to see how they would look.
Considering I still need to figure out; placement of the
lights, whether the card needs to be near the front or farther back,
the right light bulbs, and camera settings…!
I think they look ten times better!
If you scroll down to the previous post you can compare….a before and after.
