Default Picture of my Light box

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.

Wow! That is an amazing difference! I was wondering how everyone got their pictures so clear, bright and crisp! Thanks for sharing this!

By the way, your clippies are amazing, as is the bow holder! The appliques are so cute on the lined clip!

Thanks for sharing, I will be having to make one once winter comes around so this is perfect!

I'll definitely have to get more lights, so far I only have 2.

You are so welcome! My cats like to take naps in my light box, so I usually have to dust bust it before I use it. LOL! Thank you so much! When I got that giant bag of appliques I felt like I was in heaven.

I got the bulbs at Home Depot and they were $7.97 for a package of four. What doesn't make any sense is that they have a package of two of the same bulb by the same company for a higher price than the package of four. So, be sure to get the right one.

You are so welcome! I meant to add that the clamp on lights also came from Home Depot. I have them all plugged into a power strip, so you can either use the on/off switch to turn them all off at once or just unplug it, which is what I do.
