I was reading through an issue of Popular Photography . There was an interesting section about Do It Yourself items that photographers could make for their studio. The projects ranged from $10 to $60. So when I came home I decided I would try to make the lightbox.
You will need a fairly tall cardboard box, a shorter cardboard box, a light, tape and some glass. And Voila! It’s a lightbox!
I made a makeshift lightbox. The next one will be taller so that there is more room between the glass and the light. It was fun to experiment.
I’ve included some pictures to show the results.
