Link of the Day: Make your own photography light tent
Digital Photography School has a nice tutorial about how to make a homemade light tent for object photography. Thanks to them, you’ll be able to produce professional-grade photographs, without paying professional prices.
“If you’re like me, you don’t want to spend money if you can do it yourself and yield the same results. One day I was at my local photography store I saw one of these “Pop-Up” light tents. It consisted of a collapsible white fabric box with a hole in the front and 3 lights - used for photographing small objects in photographic studios (like the shot of the chocolate reindeer to the left).
I was going to purchase it until I saw the $100 price tag. No way I am going to spend $100 on some fabric and 3 lights when the material costs far less. So I set off and built one of these light tents and it did not come out bad at all.”
