Via Photo Jojo: Make A Mini Light Studio Using School Supplies

Great tutorial from Photojojo I had to share with all the Toy Photographers that follow this blog. You can make a portable light studio using translucent binders. Looks like a neat little project. They suggest using bean bags to support the light tent. I also use a large bean as a replacement tripod.

Supplies Needed

3 white, translucent binders
8 1/2″x11″ colorful cardstock
Duct tape (grey is good!)
A camera
Optional: small hand-sized bean bags

mini light tent

Everyone has a binder or two at home, so you can start this project today!

Plus, this portable light tent gives you great lighting on flowers, insects, and other small stuff without having to pluck them out of the ground.

Throw it in your bag, and you’ve got a mini studio wherever you go this summer.
