I’ve had several different light boxes over the years, from homemade foam board ones to ones I’ve purchased and not been happy with. Well I have had one for about six months now that I’m really happy with so I thought I’d share it with you. I get a LOT of questions about my light box and how I photograph my projects so I hope this post helps you.
First a couple of photographs of my current light box:
These are the products I purchased to create this box.
First, the box itself:
- It is the “Neewer® 40x40cm / 16″x16″ Table Top Photo Photography Light Tent Studio Light Box/Tent” and I purchased it here on Amazon for $19.95 w/free shipping. It comes with 4 Colored Backgrounds (Red, Black, Blue, White).
Next, the little lights on the side of the box shining through:
- They are the “LimoStudio Photography Continuous 600 Lumen LED Light Set for Table Top Studio Portable Lighting Kit with Gel Filters, AGG1501” and I purchased them here on Amazon for $20.00 w/free shipping.
Last, the extra lights:
- You may notice in my photographs that I have two silver clamp on lights. I bought these at Home Depot for about $8.99 each and added Ottlite light bulbs to them. You can get similar clamp on lamps here for around $12.95 w/free shipping. The Ottlite bulbs I bought from Joann’s with a 40% off coupon (just make sure they have the standard screw in end) but you can also buy the here on Amazon (or you can use other lights of your choice).
I hope that this helps and answers your questions about my light box and how I photograph my projects. If not, just leave a comment and I’l get back to you asap!
