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.
