Bokeh wall tutorial

DIY Photography has a Bokeh wall tutorial. The post describes how to make a background with a simple household item, Aluminum foil. They feature some great Toy Photography here so read the article for a simple project.

I tried using plastic bottles and different reflective materials for the background until I ended up with using a very simple material found in the kitchen which gave such an amazing result. Aluminum foil.

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.
