I recently made myself a handmade lightbox , nothing fancy just a cardboard box with hole cut in the sides and some tissue paper on the outside to diffuse the light . I am so happy with the results ! No more hard shadows the light is even !
Funny thing is I am photography major from Emily Carr College of art and I had forgotten the importance of a lightbox .... most of my photography is abstract like the lead photo of this blog . The results have definitely made me realize the skills I learned so long ago should not be forgotten.
I hope to go back through all my old photos of previous jewelry pieces and reshoot them , but that could be time consuming so for now i will just be happy that some lessons learned are not completely forgotten.
