Want to take quality photos? All you need are a bunch of office supplies and your point and shoot camera!

Ever wondered how people take pictures with a white backgrounds?
Usually, professional photographers use miniature tents with a white cloth hanging around the back. These tents costs around $20 to $90. I thought it was impractical to buy one, that's why I thought of an Idea of using household materials and office supplies to build myself a "DIY Lighting Studio". It didn't even cost me a penny!

The "DIY Lighting Studio" will give a professional white background effect, ideal for advertising products, making tutorials, shooting youtube videos or simply for taking pictures of your projects.

BTW, the picture above is my "Mini Sumobot (500g Prototype)" running for the national robotics competition.

That's a really good idea! I never thought of using paper as a white background <br> <br>Maybe it could also be possible to use a bunch of these (link below) as really cheap lighting that surrounds the paper! <br> <br>http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flexible-Bright-Mini-USB-LED-Light-Computer-Lamp-for-Notebook-PC-Laptop-Reading-/351525334375?var=&amp;hash=item51d88aed67

Nice, I use almost the exact same setup but I by pure coincidence I had put a cork-board behind the table and then realized I could use it to pin the paper too. <br>I didn't realize that robot was to tiny until seeing it these pictures.
