Before I started this project, tried a few lights for my product photography what I found at home: desktop lights, 150W halogen reflectors, etc. But none of them are perfect for my needs. :( So I started to search DIY variants to build two lights for myself. I found these, and get the inspiration: The MacGyver LightBox/Softbox Cheap Softbox Movie Light Lamps Set for Objects Photography Large Photography soft box on the cheap
So, the first thing: I will made something like these, and the second: this will be my first Instructable shared project and I will picture everything what I do!
On the picture is one of my finished lamp, with 4 CFL bulbs (60W=300W), mounted on a big 38" dish....
I need to add 2 more things to these lights:
- nice mount to use with stands
- umbrella holder to use umrella as a diffuser
(so I will update this instructabe soon!)
(Sorry for my english, I'm still not prefrect when I need to write down something, it's easier to speak...)
