I've been making a ton of light boxes! LOL. I think mine are too small though - I love how big yours is Michelle! As another tip - I kept crinkleling my tissue paper, so now I use 'vellum' from my scrapbooking stash - although since its small, I could only use it on a small light box.

For what it's worth - I bought 2 'clamp lights' at Home Depot for like $6 each. I thought I could clamp it on the backs of my dinning room chairs, but it doesn't work. LOL. So instead, my husband has to hold them!!! I also got the 100w bulb, and they get WAY hot, WAY quick. So I'd love to try that new daylight bulb!

We made one, one time, but ours was half that size. We had lamps all around it, moveds from room to room , used different lights, etc. Too much work so I have been taking them outside in the freezing cold. Your idea looks great, I may have to give it another try thanks Michelle

How about clamp the lamps on a really thick book like a dictionary? will that work?

Gotta love the Strobist! He's got some great tips for photography. I totally forgot about his blog. Thanks for reminding me!
