Hi ladies...I saw a few posts about light boxes today and thought I'd share a picture of my lightbox setup. I used foam core board and daylight lightbulbs and used this tutorial that I found three years ago: http://www.studiolighting.net/homema...t-photography/
. I did a few things differently like I didn't put a top on it and I clamped my lights all the way around the top. I get top views and side views of whatever I'm taking a picture of this way. The tutorial does show you how to cut a hole in the top to make it top view, but I like having it without a top.
I've included a few before/after pics of photos I've taken in my light box. I edit using GIMP, Picasa, and www.photoshop.com
. All of those programs are FREE. Sometimes one works differently/better than the other for different reasons. You just have to play around with it to find what works for you. Hope this helps someone.
