Do It Yourself Photography Light Box for Under $40

Step 1: Gather Materials

Picture of Gather Materials
With the growth of TakeMyTech.com, I decided I really needed a light box to take product photography. Of course you can buy a light box, but that’s no where near as fun as building one, and also not as cheap!

With that in mind, I got a mental picture of how I could create such a project, detailed out the items in my need and I headed down to Wal-Mart and picked up about $35 in supplies, all of which are detailed below:

  • (5) White Foam Core Board
  • (1) Roll of Carpet Tape - Two Sided
  • (1) Roll of Packing Tape
  • (3) Yards of Thin White Fabric - nearly sheer
  • Box Cutter
  • Scissors
  • (3) Pieces of Poster Board
