Some pics of the lightbox I made

Post by dearis »

Hi there,

I thought I would post a shot of the lightbox I made, the timber I had (mahogany corners, hardwood dowel) and the material was $4.00, the material is pinned using drawing board tacks, its lightweight and of reasonable size 800mm x 550mm x 550mm and fits in my car. I bought 2 adjustable desk lamps with daylight globes the light it when I don't use flash.

I hope it's useful to someone.

Here are the first shot from the lightbox, still experimenting. ... php?t=5471
