I posted about the light box I originally made here a few years ago. If you haven’t seen this idea before check out this article on how to make a simple one. My first one was quite small and eventually quite squashed, and didn’t make the move to the new house. Making a new larger set up has been top of the to-do list for a month. I finally put it together this weekend and I’m so happy with the result. I love the ability to take pictures even when the ambient light is dim!
It’s also set up in the basement so it’s out of the way of the regular chaos of my studio. All of the wood I used was left here by the old owner, and with $2 of thrifted fabric and $10 worth of lights it was super cheap too.
Here is an example photo, which I took when I finished the box late at night:
I am also using the light box for filming my mixed media pages, if you watched the last video you might have noticed the change. I think it’s a great improvement.
