  • Cheap light tent

    First I am not sure where to put this post.

    There have been several suggestions for light tents on the forum.
    Here is one more. http://sodoityourself.com/cheapest-l...ent-light-box/

    It is quite hard to take good pictures of scrolled work, specially when it is finished with a gloss or semi gloss finish.
    The one on this link will only be good for smaller projects but you can see the results posted on the site too.

    I am not sure but I think using a cardboard box as a frame with the paper stretched over it like the link shows may allow you to build an even bigger one.

    What a good idea!

    So long as you're careful not to let the heat from the light bulb build up, this could be a nifty solution to the problems that some of us* have taking photographs.

      Great link, thats what I love about this forum.

      It is not clear to me where in the box they put the light source?

        I believe the light shines through the paper outside of the box, this eliminates any shadows and glare. You can also accent the item by turning your flash on.

          I take all my pictures of my projects outside in the shade on a sunny day. No flash, no shadows. Works for me. Mick

            That is certainly a very bright contrast. Nice restoration.
