I have been taking picture most of the time outside.  Dragon*Fly posted this website and I just wanted to share it with all of you. 

http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-diy-10-macro-photo-studio.html









I need to finish it and maybe add another light or two.  I also need to practice with my picture taking . (that is the first one in the box)  My box is a little small but I was so excited I wanted to share...smiles ear to ear.  Next one will be bigger.

Dragon*Fly thank you.

this one is made out of laundry basket...

****UPDATE *** UPDATE *** UPDATE ****[/color]

I made mine out of a vacuum cleaner box.  (on of those $20 vaccum at WalMart)

step 1 - I took a ruler and used the width of the ruler for my cut out, you can kinda see my lines on the front of the box.

step 2 - I took freezer paper and clear packing tape to the outside. (sides, back and top)  The two items we keep around the house. (for tonight I lined the bottom of box with freezer paper)  Tomorrow I will get poster board to finish.

step 3 - The lamp is something I had around the house but you can get them at home depot or Lowe's.  (I may pick up another lamp or two.)

step 4 - I was given a tripod a few months back so I will set up and be ready.  Can not wait to get started on new shots.

My son wants to use it to sell his stuff on ebay, thinks he will get better shots.

Thank you for looking and commenting.

I've been trying to make one for a while, but always mess up.
Darn paper. Angry




Oh, and I think you're supposed to put a peice of white poster board on the inside of the box so when you take the picture, you wont see the cardboard in the background. Tongue
