New Project

Monday, November 23, 2009

So tonight I came home from work and got started on my latest project, a light tent. I found some great tutorials online on how to make cheap versions of them and thought I'd give it a go. I've been trying to come up with some studio options for photographing my hair clips since going outside to shoot won't work because of the crappy weather we've had lately. Here are some before and after pictures. I'm really happy with how it turned out! I still have some tweaking to do, like putting some white paper draping from the top down (think of the backdrop you sit on when you go to glamour shots!) to cover that sloppy seam I ripped at the bottom, but as for the lighting results I'm happy! I cut out the top too so that I could put downward light in if I needed it. These shots are only with two side lights. Oh! Here is a link to the tutorial I used LINK


Before: (With the same two lights pointed at the sides as in the after picture)



After:


My Lightbox


The pictures are a little foggy because my lens was dirty. Oops. It was just a practice shoot anyway!

Nice work Katie! I am REALLY impressed. Now I want to make a lightbox but I don't have much time to photograph these days. Still, kick ass!

I am SUPER impressed and proud- You must get your photography talent from your adoptive mother! ;0) I really liked the first shot though. You have turned into a great photographer of your product!!!! Try making one light dominant by making one closer to the light box than the other and let me know how it looks.
