Seeing SevsOnlyGirl's wonderful tiny light box here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371543.0
reminded me that I had made something similar a couple of years back. And that I should get it out and use it...duh.
Warning: I know nothing about photography, lighting, etc. Suggestions to improve photographs with this thing are very welcome!
I made it with plans to use it to photograph specific projects that can be shoe-box size or better, so we needed one that was big enough but also disappear-able. Unfortunately, I made it to fold up and put into a closet, without thinking that once it was in the closet, I would forget about it after a while (like, the next day). Two years later....
When I dug it out late last night , I saw a couple of panels had tears. While I was repairing, I thought I'd share it, since some Crafty Craftsters live in tight places and want something they can store under the bed (but never ever in a closet).
Here 'tis, folded for storage:
Obviously, it's made from a foam-core science board that I bought at Hobby Lobby plus one piece of foam core left over from something else. I just cut holes in the side panels and the spare panel and filled it in with interfacing.Sample photos...cassette that was first thing I grabbed, a gourd goose my DD painted when she was 10.
Then I started looking for stuff that ordinarily would be hard to photograph because of the glare, and found the laminated cards from the i-spy bags I'm currently (slowly) making for family and a bespoke Boomwire pendant:
I was playing around with the filmy stuff, but in the end I think I like the background better smooth. What do y'all think?
