The article says $10 but I only spent $0.58 for a poster board. I couldn't find the black one so I covered the white board with a piece of black fabric which I found in my closet.
First, here is the very helpful instruction:

And here is the one I made:

Fantastic job!!! I was wondering do you know how photographers do the white on white, identical to this light box, but with people in it, such as our little girl models shooting for our hair products? That is something I really want to know too, any ideas, would be GREAT!
