I’ve posted several times about light-boxes, my first was a small DIY I setup in my project room, the next was a short-lived larger installation in my basement. Now that I have absolutely no room for a permanent installation and minimal access to light a folding light box was really the best option. I bought the StudioPRO 24″ Photo Studio from Amazon, it comes with two standing lights with daylight bulbs and 4 backdrops. Here it is in use:
Check out the comparison below, the backdrops really make a difference. My only complaint about this light tent really isn’t a problem with the product but with storage, the backdrops get such bad creases in them they require ironing each time you want to use them. If I had the storage space, I would just hang them up so they didn’t get the wrinkles inside the storage bag but otherwise I have been VERY happy with this light box.
I also bought new lenses for my iPhone, including a macro, wide-angle and fish-eye. I bought these ones, they are clip-on so they fit any phone. Macro is addicting-ly fun to play with!
