I have been debating buying a photography lightbox to take pictures of the cloth diapers I'm making, but they are much too costly for me to purchase right now. The problem is that I have about 20 minutes every day that I can take photos because it's the only time the lighting is good in one of the bedrooms of our condo. That is not easy as it happens to be my Parker's room....and the door doesn't lock. So I'm always struggling with keeping him away while I taking the photos. When I saw that the first tutorial would be a lightbox, I jumped on the chance.
Here is the tutorial I followed. This took a total of 30 minutes...maybe. The longest was cutting out the holes. I will be re doing this using a larger box, but we had this box already lying around the house. I also used medium weight embroidery paper for the coverings over the holes since I didn't have any tracing paper at the time. You can't even tell in the final pictures that the white cardboard is too short, oops!
Love that lamp? Thrifted for $5!
I will definitely need to bring out the tripod for the next shoot. I will also be getting some help from my mom on the editing, at this point I was too tired to get to that point of this tutorial.
I'm so happy with the first try on this! I love how professional it makes my product photos look.
Here are so more photos from this product shoot I did. Thank you for visiting!
