Step 1: Materials
-Medium/Large Posterboard (Color of your choice, I like white)
-Lamp with adjustable arm
-Large binder clip
-Sticky tack or Tape
Other Recommended Materials
-Camera (I used a Panasonic Lumix for this Instructable)
Step 2: Construction
Step 1- Clip bottom of the posterboard to the desk with the large binder clip.
Step 2- Tack the top of the posterboard to the upper edge of the desk.
Step 3- Angle the lamp. As you are shooting pictures, you can adjust the angle so your shadow does not interfere with your work.
Step 3: Snap Away!
Step 4: Conclusion
-The lamp gets hot!
-If your camera has a "Macro" setting, use it! It is specifically for close ups. (The icon looks like a little flower)
-Let the camera focus. Most newer cameras have an automatic focus that can't do its job properly if you snap away while the image on the camera screen is still blurry. If it's clear on the little screen, chances are it will turn out well.
