DIY Light Box

I realized the hype of light boxes a while back when I scoured the internet for clean photo backgrounds. Well a few weeks ago, I made one based on this DIY. I just found an old box, cut out the top and both sides with a box cutter and then glued tissue paper over the empty holes. I just used plain white card stock and lace fabric as a background. I’d like to get a piece of poster board to make it more uniform in the future, but this totally worked for now.

I played around for a few hours and found that it worked best with my tripod and wireless shutter release.

I think this will make for quite interesting photos, once I stop underexposing (letting in too little light).
