My Crappy DIY Light Box

For all of you who want to see my light box Crappy. I used this tutorial. This is it. *blushes three times in a row*


And some random items I had in my reach ...




Hahaha, my anti-bitching pills. =)))


What do you think? Do you have any tips for me?

Thanks for looking!

  1. I think you did a great job! I discovered I can actually use a tripod and a white paper a couple of days ago only! No wonder, why I was getting blurry pictures all the time! lol

  2. I think that is a great idea! I'm going to copy you because I need a way to take better pics without spending a lot of $$.
    As long as the pics come out good, who cares you took them in your Crappy?

    It looks crappy on the outside but the pictures come out beautifully.

    It works well so who cares what it looks like! I love the nail polish bottle and tape proping up the light, that makes it true DIY!

  6. you did awesome!!! works well too!! also - if you have money - you should try to see if you can get a 2nd light to put to the left of your box - that way you won't have a shadow on the left side. ^_^ i've tried my hand at a light box and SUCK!! mine totally seriously suck!

  7. as long as it works who cares if it looks crappy
    the one used until not long ago definitely looks like the long lost twin sister of your lightbox, hubby very kindly bought me a foldable one for my birthday and I'm still trying to get used to it ^_^

  14. Hey, it's not crappy, it's really useful ! Your pics look great so I think your box is well made :p

  15. I've got one of those foldable lightboxes too, I absolutely love it. But if i had room to keep one up permanently I would probably have made one myself. Yours seem to work great but as someone else already said it'll prolly be good to get another light, and possibly cover the insides with white paper too to reduce shadows and make it slightly brighter.

  16. I dig your light box, and I've actually been thinking about making one for myself for a long time now. (Thinking being the operative word. ;))

  17. this looks like it works well! Your pictures are great, so who cares if its a DIY.

  18. Who cares what it looks like as long as it does the job - If I had somewhere to *put* a light box, I'd be copying off you =)

  19. I do! Of course I don't know how colour accurate they are because I don't own those polishes but they look great.
    I'm definitely going to try it. I'm pretty sure it beats taking pics with gloomy winter lighting.
