My first light box

Since I’m asked to photograph jewellery for commercial purposes I have to invest in a light box and other equipment. But first let me experiment with a homemade light-box and as soon as I have some experience with it I can always buy a professional made one but than I know what I want. Maybe a new one is not even needed (I hope). Anyway in this gallery the not yet fully ready homemade light-box plus the first shots (made in the shade without artificial lightning …). Not perfect at all but there is hope … 😀

    1. You can find a lot of DIY ideas/suggestions via google. This one is a simple plastic milk-white light transparent box with fine (muslin) cotton on the inside. The pictures were shot with sun light. The idea is that I place the box on a glass plated table and add three lights in reflecting lamp-shades. All in an angle with the lens: one from down under, one from the front (more or less) and one more/less from behind. Have just to experiement a bit… 😉
