About This Class

This class takes you step-by-step through the construction and practical use of a simple studio lightbox.

  • Polish your product photography skills by creating a small, portable studio space
  • Learn how to utilize its features indoor and outdoor, day or night.
  • Customize your box to enhance your photographs for greater variety

Perfect for beginning photographers, professionals, and smart phone photographers. 

You will need:

  1. Cardboard Box (Medium size Home Depot box is my preference!)
  2. Tracing Paper, Parchment Paper, or Wax Paper (on a roll makes it easy!) 
  3. White or Black Posterboard
  4. Packing Tape
  5. Utility Knife / Box Cutter
  6. Scissors
  7. Ruler
  8. Marker / Pencil
  9. Recommended: 2 matching Desk Lamps for using your Lightbox indoors and at night

As requested, here's links for the box and tracing paper I used:
18"x 50" Tracing Paper Roll 
Home Depot Medium Moving Box
