Light is Everything!

Macro Studio

I put together a macro studio light box tonight in about 3.9 seconds. It’s totally a synch. And, best of all, it’s cheap! Cardboard box, parchment paper, background and away we go! Check out how to make your own DIY Macro studio in this youtube vid.

The results rock the set. I was blown away at how nice the light comes through. And, using my SB-600’s made it super easy to control the ratios and placement of the lights. You could light this with ikea desk lamps too and control the falloff by simply moving the lamps closer and farther away. But strobe is cooler. 😉 It see endless possibilities for still life in this easy lightbox. Or, product photography if you do any selling of goods on eBay. Very cool stuff!
