Cheap Light Box
March 24, 2010
This is what I used for my test for my DIY Pop-up flash diffuser.
The purpose of a Light Box is mainly to show details of an object, and to elliminate destruction around the object. With a good light and good background you can bring out the highlights and details of the object.
The cheapest light box(see sample on the left) can range anywhere from $30.00 to $100.00 depending on the size, but why buy if you can improvised, bring out that McGiver within you. There are a lot of ways to have your own simple but cheap light box. My light box is not just cheap, it’s free, I found it in the laundry room. Maybe you can also find one laying in your garage, basement, storage or laundry room.
Here are some sample photos taken on the Light Box
