[Photography] How to build a light box

There's an amateur (but impressive) photographer from here in St Louis who has written a tutorial on how to build a light box, specifying everything from materials to lightbulbs. It might be of interest to anyone wanting to kick up their photographs ...

Awesome! I always wondered how they got the shots with the white background. Will be trying this soon.

I've been doing a rather simplified version of a light box by using a piece of posterboard:

Tape the posterboard to the wall (or some other tall object) and let it curve down to become a surface on a table.

I wait for a cloudy day and shoot outside or in bright sunlight and use other pieces of white posterboard to bounce fill light.

I'll try to track it down but I saw a really nice article about making a teeny but highly portable lightbox using a maglite

Thank you for the mention :-)

The previous commenter had a good suggestion. It's good to use a piece of posterboard in the back of this box and let it curve down.

Good stuff!
