DIY II - SIMPLE LIGHT BOX

To take pictures of small items, I constructed a simple light box using white A4 papers.

The crude sample of the box links here

Next put it on a glass coffee table.

I used two flashes, one aiming the lights from below to eliminate shadows and illuminate the object/ A4 box bottom part.

I aimed the other one from above the A4 box as fill in flash to light up the object. For seamless look, slide in unfold A4 paper to fit in the box and put the object on it.

Finally,I use Lightroom to fine tune the image.

Walla! Isolated image done.

Great photos. If these we taken with such a simple to make set up then I can see that I will need to be doing some experimenting myself. Good luck with your sales.

It seems to be working well for you... I have started to play with my collapsable light cube that I mentioned in your last post and got a couple of pictures accepted and took some more this morning :D
