Light Box

Well, I finally got around to making a light box.  So from here on out, be "wowed" by my pictures.  Or at least pretend.

To make it, I googled "how to make a light box", glanced through a few things listed, noticed I had bookmarked one from The Scrap Shoppe, then kind of winged it.  

Basically I cut 4 sides out of a diaper box, hotglued white fabric in the holes (aka, sheets - what else!) and cut a piece of posterboard to fit inside for that "seamless" look.

 What's in the box??  That post will be up tomorrow.....

The idea is you can shine a light at it for your pictures, but it was daytime so I just set mine by a window - see my "studio" -

Looking to vamp up your photography skills??  Stay tuned, I have a heads up coming later.....
