New Light box.

I got a new light box recently. My previous two boxes were home made. They worked pretty well but I needed to upgrade. I wanted a sturdier box, the cardboard one was getting wobbly.
I found a set on ebay. It had the box, four back drops, two lights, and a mini tripod. The light box folds into itself making it portable. Once folded there are pockets to store the backdrops.T01_02

The box had three diffuser sides. The front, bottom and back are open. The carrying case folds back and supports the box. It also keeps the back from being fully opened.There is strip of velcro on the back to attach the backdrops. The backdrops are about a yard long and 16 inches wide. They are a little thin. Since the bottom is open, what ever you place the box on may show through the fabric. I set my box up on chessboard and had to double layer the backdrops to hide the squares.

The set has four back drops white, black, red and blue. They are fabric and are easy to switch between colors. A couple of the backdrops had creases in them. hopefully the creases can come out.

The set also had a small camera tripod. It’s really too small to support my camera. I already have tripods so that didn’t bother me. There are two small lights with the set. Right now my table top studio is set up on a podium, not a table. So I have limited room to test them within my box. I’m really enjoying the results of the box.

    • I’ve been wanting one for a while. I finally decided to grab one. I had been using something I made following instructions here. It worked well.

    That seems great for $30. How do you like the lights? Are they LED?
