Morning! gosh I know its the hols when I get time for a bit of WOYWW.... welcome to my space! As you can see it is quite tidy and contains my newly created light-box for taking card photos. I get so fed up with making something that I am proud of only to find the photo I take looks a bit pants! I've tried lots of different backgrounds but I've never been really happy. Then, hubby (the graphic designer) suggested a light box which he'd seen on eBay. I took a look but they were quite expensive for what they are so I thought I could make something myself..... so I did! I used 4 sheet of A3 white card which I purchased from an art shop in Manchester and the results are quite pleasing!
In case any one else would like to make a similar set up I simply placed an A3 sheet in a landscape orientation in the middle and attached to sheets in portrait either side using tape on the back. I scored and folder the "over-hanging" bits of card on the sides and folded then inwards to create a bottom. I attached the 4th an final sheet to the bottom edge of the central section.
I've positioned the "photo station" by a shelf so I can balance my day-light lamp in the suitable position to avoid as many shadows as possible.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with the pictures I've taken so far........ but role on summer and lighter nights, it'll make taking photo a bit easier all round.
Thanks for calling in today,
