Super Super Late

Want to take this time to show you a little about this Light Box I was talking about.
But first there's this guy, he's been with me for years. Been abused in the heat sitting in my car for a couple years. Sat in pieces in my closet till I found all of him. Now he usually sits on my server protecting it from failing or other invaders.

Some comparison shot so you can get a scale of how big he actually is. That's a quarter, and that's the origami I folded up on Monday. He's tiny, but extremely durable as you can probably see from his wear in the first photo.

And now the actual box. Yea, it's just a box, like I said, with a sheet of printer paper in the back. I know it's technically not even a cheap DIY lightbox, but meh, follows the same principles of bouncing light and lets me remove a lot of shadows. I'll have to upgrade the box and come up with something when I plan to shoot anything bigger than a quarter.

  10. another good trick with good results, just use a white sheet (or pillowcase maybe) and drape it at an angle like you did with the paper. Put a flash behind the sheet so that it illuminates when the shot is taken. You get that solid white backdrop look.
