MAKING A LIGHT BOX
I decided that my photography needed a boost and perhaps a light box was the answer. Making the light box was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. First I bought a box at Wal-Mart. My pieces are not large so got a medium box.
The first steps to make my box were to tape the back (bottom of the box) and then to cut the flaps from the front (top of box.
Next I made a slit at the back of the top and then cut out openings on the top and both sides. I wanted my box to be all white so painted the inside. To cover the side and top openings I used a almost sheer linen that was white.
To finish my light box I put three pieces of fabric thru the slit, first a white, then a blue and finally mauve. I now have a choice of backgrounds and easy to change. The fabric is long enough to drape over the top on top of each other when not in use and if it is the bottom fabric not being used it can lay in light box under the selected fabric.
Having this new light box has made picture taking for my ETSY shop a breeze and I am finally getting the results I wanted.
