So, my step-sis gave me a Michael's gift card for my birthday. Got a few beads (cuz I know I don't have enough) and got the foam board to create my light box.
I had seen that light boxes help make great pictures, so I added one to the mental wish list. Especially after I saw the prices of them. Having one quickly went to the bottom of the wish list.
Fast forward a year. I decided to bring the idea back to the forefront. Googled light boxes and found a website that gave instructions for creating a simple and inexpensive one (http://ourmedia.org/node/253481). I bought three pieces of foam board from Michael's (since I was only making my box 15" x 15"), and white duct tape and two $9 lights from Home Depot (another gift card).
Here's the box:
The pictures taken inside are phenominal!!!!
Here's the before:
And here's the after:
Sooooo much better!! Don't you think?
Well, signing off as I've lots of re-shooting and playing to do!
