This version is a 'Micro Macro', you can use it to take great pictures of items for ebay, bugs, and many things. It can also be scaled up to be a full studio, so long as you can find a large enough box.
For those who don't need step by step, all the images are on this step.
P.S. All shots are from a Canon Sd870 point and shoot. No processing was done after taking them except the really obvious ones (referring to the first shots).
Comments appreciated! (don't just rate it, rate it and provide feedback!)
Step 1: Materials:
An Index card - stiff matte white paper will also do, this is the most readily availible.
A Sandwich bag - Substitute with snippet from impossible to open packaging.. you know the one. This creates reflections for objects.
A small box with a white inside lining - I used a tokyo flash box, but in reality, any box that is lined with matte, white paper will do OK.
A led light, or lantern (for a real 'micro feel' get a group of led's connected to a 9 volt with a switch) - this lights up the box.
A subject - self explanitory.
Scissors- used to cut stuff. If you don't have this, you need a new toolkit!
Step 2: Cut!
Take the plastic baggie and cut it out for a little rectangle. This is your wet substance or reflection maker. This allows you to create reflections or use wet substances without wrecking the box. Try to make it the size of the box bottom.
