my lightbox experiment.....help and cc needed
Jul 6, 2006

so i saw a thread yesterday about light boxes, and decided to go get the materials to make one of my own. I got spare time, few spare dollars, and am always up for learning... BTW, I'm shooting on a D50. Here's how it went:

Maybe i did my lighting wrong, but I used Silver half dome clamp lights w/ 100 watt philips natural light bulbs. One on each side, and one on top. It was made out of pvc pipe, draped with an 800 thread count white top sheet.

The camera seemed to come out, ok, but not spectacular.

A piece of Costa Rican pottery. It is very soft around the edges, and you can see two spots on the pot from the lights. I thought the sheet took care of this. All the other lights in the house were off.
