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.

    • I’m going to try it sometime.There might be binders in the house. If not I’ll pick some up at the store. Cheap and portable studio, I like that idea.

    Agreed. Can you check your link to the full tutorial though? It doesn’t seem to be working. I’d love to see what kind of binders exactly.

    • I knew I had to share it when I saw it. I have looked for the binders at walmart didn’t see what I needed. But stores should be stocking school supplies soon, so I’ll get the binders somewhere.
