DIY Light Box (Easy)

Saturday, April 05, 2014

I finally decided to make my own light box.

A very simple light box and you only need these three material:
  • A rectangular white plastic storage container which is available at the supermarket. This one cost me RM40.
  • A piece of A2 white paper (thats 8 times the size of A4 paper) folded into half and
  • Sellotape
This is how my light box look like.

and here is the result - unedited except added the water mark.
Not bad yeah?
The picture is brighter on the top left compared to the bottom right though.
Will do better next time.
After all the light box is very mobile and light.
Hope you are inspired to make your own light box and have a great weekend :)

Very nice! Gonna have to try that- natural light has been kinda iffy here, and it's holding back some major stuff. Thanks for posting this! :)

It does make some difference. Used to swear on natural light but I need to move around a lot to get the right "light" :).
