DIY Lightbox




Introduction: DIY Lightbox

I needed to photograph some things to sell online, and unfortunately, I have a mediocre point-and-shoot camera, and nothing as far as equipment gos. This is the lightbox I came up with.

Step 1: Materials/Design

I used a sheet wrapped around a metal file rack from inside of my filing cabinet. I had a portable shop light that I held/hung above it, and I put a round cleaner container underneath the sheet to set the items on.
I've heard of people using semi-transparent trashcans, wax paper, and a number of other things as well.

Step 2: Results

I thought they turned out pretty well. Don't forget to use your macro setting or lens.

This is my shortest instructable, but I figured why not, simple, helpful ideas and solutions are what I love about this site.
Thanks for looking.
