Cheap Light Box for Photoshoots or Blogging

Hi DeNami friends,

Today I wanted to share a cool little project I came across. There are MANY times in Washington state that the weather does not cooperate for decent photo shots for cards or any projects.
I always end up with shadows, yellow pictures, dull photos or just unfocused ones due to poor lighting. Often I just want a quick little picture and not have to set up my whole studio lighting set up, which I also have.

I am also starting to get some spring cleaning fever. I guess it probably started from the fact that I was in bed for three whole weeks. You can read about my health ordeal here.
Once I got on my feet, I wanted to do stuff I hadn't been able to do, which included spring cleaning. Mainly, decluttering, purging and simplifying. This includes selling things on Ebay, Craigslist and other places. As any selling expert will say, your pictures make all the difference in how you product is perceived and portrayed. The product will always look better in good lighting.

This brings me to my blogpost today. I came across an article about how to make your own Light box or back drop for photoshoots. Even if you are not a photographer, this will come in handy for ANYONE. If you are a blogger for cardmaking, enter cards in contests or challenges, sell things online, are a crafter, take pictures of your creations, you name it, this will come in handy. Even if you don't feel it is a needed item for you, I bet you know someone who could use this idea.

All these items can be found at the dollar store, which makes it all the more doable. The other great thing is it can be folded away and is not a permanent fixture. This will be very handy for small spaces or if you occasionally have need for this.

All the step by step instructions can be found here.

Here is also a great tutorial on how to create great card pics. Great for your blog, posting online, contests, articles, magazine submissions, etc.
You can also find more great info here on how to create great pics of your products.

What kind of uses will you be wanting this for? Comment below.

By the way, you can always add more "windows" for more lighting, like above.

Enjoy your new studio!!

I've known I needed something like this, but thought I wouldn't be able to do it without someone helping me. Plus I don't have a place to keep it up all the time. I will be checking out these links--thank you! Of course, if I get a good picture I can't blame not winning on my bad picture--LOL! So glad you're on your feet again, Nami--take care of yourself.
