|Grab a cardboard box and cut the front off (I cut the bottom of as well because I couldn't find a box the right size).|
|Cut holes in 3 sides (top and sides). I used a 2cm square to speed up the marking out process, just put it in the corner and mark round it, then use a ruler to connect the squares up.|
|The light box with the bottom added.|
|The interior covered in white card.|
|The complete box with the curved back-piece added and tissue paper taped over the holes.|
|A close up of the rear curve. This is what creates the seamless backdrop associated with light box photography.|
I've taken a few (nearly a 100!) photos using this rig and my brother's lumix digital camera. This camera isn't the best for macro photography but does the job ok, if I want better results I'll need more light (on the way) and a better camera/lens (unlikely given lack of any form of income until I have gainful employment). I'm planning on putting up a lot of these pictures over the next few weeks as part of various WIPs and to show off (well, expose) the few paint jobs I have finished.
Here's a photo I snapped using the rig. Adios.
