What's in a photo



I just made a lightbox! It's a very sophisticated affair, constructed out of pricey materials - cardboard, masking tape, and white tissue paper. The plans, provided by Strobist, were simple enough even for me to follow. Maybe, hopefully, this box will make up for my abject lack of photography skills. It'll probably just make my pics look less ugly. I'll take all the help I can get.

Oh, that's cool! I tend to just improvise with sheets, but that's kinda lacking :p

What a neat idea! I think I might try to make one of my own!

Those are actually really super helpful - I made a really really crappy one and it helped me to take some pretty decent looking photos. It's fun to mess with it and try to position the light correctly.

Oh! I'm so jealous! I want to make one of those! I have to run to the Wal-Mart and pick up some tissue paper ASAP. It looks so great! And according to the plans you could use it for just about anything... okay so now I'm excited. I can't wait to make one. :)
