Pictures of an EASY lightbox...

Ok, don't laugh at my ghetto-light box!! I left it outside for a few min. while i ran inside to get away from the BEES!! It was a little breezy & tore my tissue paper. It looks pretty nasty but is a neat trick for getting better shots than you can on your kitchen table with the electric box humming while you fire up every light in your home! I like to take it outside on my deck WHEN we get sun & take my pictures- all while trying to keep my shadow OUT of the shot! My least favorite part... trying to get a great picture of a product. I know it is the ONLY way to really sell your artwork, but BORING....!!!

See how the poster board is "ramped", this will give you a seamless shot. Depending on what you're taking a picture of, you may want to make sure your box is either bigger or covered more with white paper. I usually take my shots from further back then go in & crop them closer & make sure the box isn't showing. See pictures *below*

I still think a NEW camera would help me out... hint, hint!!

I hope this helps you... if you have any questions, let me know!

Happy voting Day!!

Oh the pictures help a ton! Again, thank you so much for doing this. I really appreciate it. It will definitely come in handy.

I still want to marry that cupcake, even though I'm already married to a goofball. ;)
