Since it was so nasty and cold this weekend, I stayed in and played with my homemade light box. I got the idea for it from the Strobist blog. I'm still struggling with getting the lighting arranged just right. It seems like my daylight bulbs might be a bit under powered. Anyway, it's fun to just experiment with this cheap, homemade box. My 'model' is something I found in Trevor's room. I call it "Death To Wasabi" (it's actually clay).
Here's another quick tip, this is one I came up with. You can use the base of a pack of blank compact discs as a low to the ground light stand.
After I had finished, I later saw the daylight glow coming from my room and had thought maybe I had left one of the 3 lights on. I walked in to find my 9 y/o with his camera (a Kodak P850 point and shoot) taking pictures of his model planes.
