Default Re: Home made light box


You can also use a translucent white plastic box, bin or even a lampshade! The whole idea is to get the light in the box reflected evenly, and to diffuse direct glare.

I love love love my plastic box! I lined the base with white paper, shine my table lamp above (wrapped with a thin white cotton fabric if the glare is too much) and take pictures of my bows or whatever I want to take.

Here are some images to show - The blue bow was taken against a white background, and the lilac bow was taken against a blue background (for easier editing purposes)

Making bows are so fun!
