So I made a simple lightbox and finally have been able to get some decent indoor pictures. There's a bit of tweaking needed and no one will mistake me for Demo but it is leaps and bounds over what I have been able to do previously. I was also finally able to do a lume shot.







I was impressed that my 14 year old Omega has such bright lume and even my 24 year old Tag (2nd from left, front) had some life in it!

P.S. Yes,yes, I know the Irreantum is upside down, I didn't notice until I previewed this post!

Bob,
How did you go about making it? I was considering buying one, but I would rather build it myself?

I didn't know you can buy one! Do you have a link?

Anyway, I removed the monitor from my computer desk and added a couple of clip-on work lights with 100W CFL daylight bulbs and a white poster board as the background.



Quick, cheap and easy. I'm also using a crappy <$100 point and shoot camera.

Holy cow, those are not very expensive at all! Let's see, it cost me about $14 for the clip on lights, $7 for the bulbs and $7 for the backdrop.

I should have saved my money and gotten one of those!

I always thought a lightbox was somoething only professionals use and thus costs big $$$!
