How to Make An Inexpensive Light Tent - DIY
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. It consisted of a collapsible white fabric box with a hole in the front and 3 lights – used for photographing small objects in photographic studios (like the shot of the chocolate reindeer to the left). I was going to purchase it until I saw the $100 price tag. Materials Needed: 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) Also suggest a lighting fixture. 7.) Now that you have the Materials I will show you out to make a light tent step by step. Step By Step Process: A) Take your box with a tape ruler and marker and measure in 2″ from the side of the box marking multiple points with your marker.
