DIY Lightbox
« on: December 10, 2012, 11:55:40 AM »
Needed a lightbox to photograph my flies and assorted small stuff. Kinda crude. 16x16 box, tracing paper windows. I reinforced the corners with dowells, and added a thick piece of cardboard on the back to act as a diaphram. Fairly rigid and should last for at least a while. I do need to get another desk lamp for the top window.

I like your ingenuity. You may just have saved me £15.49.  :) Now, I wonder if it'll work with A3 paper?  ;D
