In the present day, pictures effect an instructable greatly and usually decide if your instructable gets featured or not. However, maybe your goal is not to get your article featured nor to win a contest, but just to get that appreciation of accomplishment. Follow these simple steps and make your instructable better!
Step 1: The Materials
The list of materials needed can probably be found throughout your home:
-A sharpie (or other marker)
-A triangle (optional)
-4 strips of cardboard 11" long
-4 strips of cardboard 8.5" long
-Hot glue gun
Here are some other items that are required but not shown in the image:
-3 sheets of 8.5" x 11" white paper
Step 2: The Frames
Take two 11" cardboard strips and two 8.5" cardboard strips and from a rectangle. I used my hot glue gun to stick the strips together.
Now, take one of your paper and stick in on top of the cardboard. I used hot glue once again.
Now just make one more.
Step 3: The Setup
To setup your "photo studio," take both your cardboard frames and lay them against a wall as shown in the picture.
Now take your final sheet of paper and Tape it in between both of the papers. If you need any assistance, just look at the second image.
Now just take your two lamps and position one at each side.
Step 4: The Picture
To take the best photo possible, switch your camera to macro mode. It's that little flower button. Again, if you need assistance, just look at the image provided.
Also, make sure that all additional lighting if off and only your lamps are producing the light. Make sure that the flash on your camera is off and assure that it is mounted on a tripod.
Now just press the shutter button and presto! You've got yourself some better pictures.
