The following tutorial on constructing an Inexpensive Light Tent was Submitted by Jeffrey Bail over at our Forums . I thought it was well worth highlighting here on the main blog too! See Jeffrey’s Flickr Account here . 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.
I love Photoshop techniques that offer all kinds of possibilities for experimentation—and the following tutorial is a perfect example of one of those techniques. In this issue, we’re going to take a portrait and replace the person’s image with text (think 2009 Grammy posters). Pick a portrait that offers good contrast—a photo that’s very dramatic and dark probably won’t work as well.
