DIY Lightbox

My finished lightbox...raggedy looking? Yep. Ghetto? Probably. Does it work? YES.

Recently, I stumbled upon an interesting tutorial for a DIY light tent. It seemed simple enough and the material costs were sooo cheap that I just had to try it. I got so sick of having to rely on a perfect day to take pictures of my pendants and even more tired of having to adjust so much using my photo editing software. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try to build one, especially for rainy days.

I got to work on it, and my hubby helped me out a little as well. Although I made some slight adjustments to my lightbox, I pretty much did what the tutorial said and my box yields some pretty good pictures! It does take some fiddling around with your camera's white balance settings to find what works best for what you're photographing. Best of all, it only took 2 hours to make!
