Got me a new camera and thought I would share a couple of pics.



Here are some pics and directions of the setup. This is the website I used to make it.
-18"x18"x18" Box
-Construction square and a x-acto knife to cut out the sides and the top
-Tape up one end of the box and then cut off the top and bottom flaps of the other end
-You can leave the sides like I did to help cut reflections if you are taking pics of something reflective
-Streched tissue paper over the holes
-A piece of 18" wide x 36" long paper to run down the back and out the front
-Curve it in the back and you get the seamless look
-The lights are wally world work lights that were $6.50 each and daylight CFL bulbs
-I will probably end up spray painting the back white and fade to black in the front



Wow this pic is crooked.

Thanks for the kind words, its the camera! The setup is just a cardboard box cut out the sides and the top, tape some tissue paper over the holes, get 3 work lights and a sheet of paper for the bottom. Took me maybe 30 min. I made it to take pics of the 'lil ladys artwork but thought it would be fun to take some pics of the gun for practice. :cool:

Good job. I've got a Nikon D40X with a few lenses and love it. I've been putting off making a light box to take some photos of my guns but I think I'll have to do it now !! :)

Well feel free to send yours my way and I can take some pics of it. ;)
I promise I will clean it after I shoot it... With my camera that is.

I was thinking about this and I'm going to make one for my pistols. However, I'd love to do it for my AR so do you have any idea on what to do with the paper.. I mean if you used multiple pieces than you'd have seams and that'd look stupid. Any ideas?

I was thinking of a bright white sheet, than I was thinking of doing one with maybe an American flag.

You can get bigger pieces of paper at most large format printer places (kinkos). The flag would be cool, it will be darker so if you have a glass table or just a big piece of glass, cut out the bottom of the light box put it on the glass table and put a light or 2 under the glass.
