I used a copy paper box (since that's what we had in the house) and I cut up an old white sheet. As you can see, I got lazy by the end (it was getting close to the end of naptime and I had to get it done) and didn't even glue the poster board down, I just clothes pinned it in place. It doesn't really matter because that part doesn't show, but eventually I'll finish the project...or maybe not.
So to show you the benefit of the Light Box and how it can really help photograph your items better, I took some pictures of some of my favorite accessories from around the house.
A sweet little bird I bought from Revel Designs at a craft fair.
See? Don't those pictures look great? I still need to play around with my lighting a bit. You can shine light from both sides and the top of your light box. I just have to get some portable, bright lights that I can use. I hear Ott lights are great for this (maybe that'll give me an excuse to splurge!). I also want to make a slightly bigger one, but like I said, I was limited by time and what was already in my house.
If you have an Etsy shop this is a definite MUST HAVE! Do any of you have Light Boxes? What do you use yours for?
