Photography Light Box
IF you want to get fancy and shape your PVC it will shape easily with a cheap heat gun from a hardware store. :) By the way this tutorial is great. I need to make this before sunday for a product shoot I am doing for a friend. :)
I just use the stuff that I had around the house.the fabric large white paper and if he's of the hold it all together I purchased. The Box we got it work. The light ring that is linked to in this article was made from an old store bought basketball game. But obviously could use PVC pipe to make it bigger.
Thank you, I have been looking for an affordable way to take better pictures for my DIY blog. Perhaps I'll make a bigger one so I don't get the box edges in the shot. DIY Montreal | www.diymontreal.com
Can you be more specific on the type of cloth you are using? I have seen light boxes that used drafting paper or some frosted paper? Beyond durability, doesn't it block out more light?

I was looking for a similar setup for a product shoot.
Thanks. Im juat stunned i am still getting view and comments.
I've been looking at box variations and am getting ready to build or purchase a better box. A couple of comments on lighting. As a couple of people have noted, either a "daylight" or even "bright white" bulb will give you truer colors and require less adjustment later. "Soft white" bulbs introduce quite a lot of yellow. Yes, brighter is good, but brighter is obviously hotter, so personally I'd recommend very bright CFLs, especially if you decide to use paper as a light diffuser. Also, interfacing for fabric diffuses light well and comes in different weights; it's often cheaper than fabric. - kmartin45
Since all I do is photograph Greeting Cards, I use only 4-12" x 12" whisper white card stock to make an open box and photograph. Works like a charm!!! - gferland
I love building stuff as the rest of us...so dont get me wrong when i say you can get better box and lights with a camera stand for $9.95 on ebay..."photography box".....but your will work just as good - SAMP17
