So I needed a light diffuser box for taking pictures of my creations... and I hate shadows so I searched online and the best idea I found was to take a cardboard box and cut big horking squares out of the sides and top and then attach a sheet to it.
That idea just didn't fly with me. I'd like to take it down and store it on occasion ya know!! I don't have a house big enough to store my stash let alone a permanent huge 2' square box with fabric stapled to it!!
So I thought hmmm.... kiddie card table is the perfect size for *most* of my stuffied - my recent skeleton proved to be a bit bigger but on average the kiddie card table would be absolutely perfect! So I removed the top of one... then sewed a nice white fabric cozy to go around it - sewed on some velcro to hold the front sides and top so it stays on nice and cozy while being used.... sewed up a back drop (yes, I still have to finish sewing my other color back drops I use!) and attached some velcro to that too... and bam!! A portable, nearly perfect sized light diffuser box was born!
I can take it outside on super bright days and get a great shot or I can set it up inside with the help of 3 lamps - 2 desk lamps for the sides and I have a pole lamp with a reading lamp attached to it that is a great height for the top...
And even my skeleton was able to fit in there with some creative posing lol... Yeah, that's why he isn't photographed standing up besides the sexy posing I think is too funny.
I took his picture outside on the back patio with the sun just blaring down(with a different color back drop) I used to have a 2 hour window or so on the front porch that I could take near shadowless pictures. I'm so glad I have my light box now!!
I just had to share my light diffuser box!
