Our Ghetto Light Box!

Cho has super crappy pictures. Mine are crappy as well, but not as bad as hers (in my point of view)

We have crappy pictures because:

1. We don't have a professional camera, we just use our cellphone
2. We have crappy lighting

I can't really just go out and buy an expensive camera, but we can make better lighting.

Researched online for how to make a light box. Finally, here it is!

Cho found a cardboard box lying around in the dump...or something close to the trash...the box itself is in a pretty bad condition...It's all bent and soft....

We cut out 3 squares from the top and the 2 sides. Stuck rice paper to the squares and then got a cheap lamp to shine on the top! The only thing that cost us money here is the lamp and the bulb. Which is about $12US. Not too bad. Now I can wince less at Cho's pics.

Here is an example pic!

  1. That is such a good idea! That would be fantastic for taking final product photos for my tutorial. You've inspired me to make one ^^.

    However, have you ever thought of just finding a pretty pillow or something to be your background?
    For example: http://i.imgur.com/Wmi76.jpg

    It may serve to be a simple alternative when/if the lightbox gives you trouble :)

    1. ooo!
      That's a good idea!
      I'll give it a try some time...since our light box isn't very sturdy. I think it'll fall apart anytime soon.
