Light Box

Was so completely fed up with the dull and miserable weather earlier this week, and as I wanted to list something new in my shops and had wasted far too much time on rubbish photos, I decided enough was enough. I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to boxes (not really sure why) - so I was lucky enough to have an decent sized Amazon box that I could use. Lined the entire box with white paper and put a sheet of tin foil at one end. Popped in my item to photograph and, after experimenting with the use of a small desk top halogen light, hey presto, I had a pretty good picture to use in my listings.
Practically free too! Can't be bad.

Please feel free to use my idea (I'm sure I'm not the first person to come up with it!) - product photography for online businesses can be a real pain to get right, perhaps this will help.
