Tutorial: DIY Lightbox (super cheap and easy)

Hi all, Today i am going to show you how to make a DIY light box on the cheap! so put down your ipad2 and come have a go!


I use mine to photograph all my finished miniatures, be it forge world tanks (you might need a bigger box!) the usual games workshop space marines and so on. You really can use them for anything you want to take photographs of! it does not have to be war gaming related!

All you need is a cardboard box, some paper, a printer and some sticky tape!

Ok, step one, take your box and cut out one end and the top or bottom, then cover the inside with white paper


After you have covered the insides, add a blue gradient to the bottom and rear of the box, making sure it curves rather than folds at the back corner

Next put a light above the box, add a miniature and take pictures!


You can see here the imperial guard sentinel i tested it with.

The pictures come out like this



 Try it and see how you get on!
