~UPDATE~
If you're just joining this thread, keep reading. There's been some changes to the original box design and a few more designs posted by other members.

~UPDATE #2~
My pictures have been lost, but don't let that stop you.



I spent a rainy Saturday morning making a cheap, home made light box. Here's my ghetto set up. Build pictures were taken with my wife's P&S.
Comments or criticizims always welcome.

The build...

They do get hot, but I just leave them on until I'm done with the shoot. Maybe 5-10 minutes or so.

Thanks everyone. I need to get some black paper for the background and try that next.

Yep.. same rain. :)
The roll of easel paper was $5, and the lights were $10 each.

My wife came home from shopping and saw what I was up to. She said she's been thinking about putting one of her Coach purses on ebay and asked me to shoot it. It barely fit in the box and the crop was super tight, but it worked.

Great idea, be safe with those lights.


Canon 350/xt ,50mm 1.8, Sigma 17-70mm, Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro, Sigma Super Flash Canon Backpack, Ebay tubes (awesome), Cheap tripod and a Sony DSC-S40 and a lot of hope and dreams of more gear.

And in 3 Months either a Canon 70-200 f/4 or a 70-300 IS still debating.

The camera needed to be lower on this shot.
