new lightbox setup (smallest/easiest :L)

Monday, 16 January 2012

recently on one of my posts i recived a few comments that the photos wernt the best:  and that means any of these things could be wrong:

- my lightbox setup

arfter a long  3 and a half seconds of thinkings i decided to re-do the lightbox, however i have a few problems:
the old one worked due to a lot of sunlight, sadly at the moment there isnt moch of that :(, as well as the fact that normal WHITE lighbulbs are being replaced by these terrible eco friendly ones that are YELLOW and take ages and give off less light :(

so with a bit of white paper, and the powerlamp i set off to build a small lightbox* (not really a box)

and heres the results

problem: too dark. solution: turn up camera brightness 

good photo: foucused wrong: soloution: re-focus

edited through GNU,imiage manipulation program............ not im not using the abbreviation :L

<3 best shot :) 
lesson learned? well turn up the camera's brightness and move somewhere sunny :L


anyone have any tips? has this helped you?  do you want to rant about the removal of the metal spider, GW's cutest model ever? :)

p.s. how sexy is my guy in skyrimn :L

i have a full set of daedric but who wants that when you can have purple pimp robes :D

Simple answer, get some daylight, 5K CF bulbs. I run them in my lightbox. Give them a 5 minutes to completely warm up and shoot away. Check your camera white balance setting and adjust it to match your light type.

Have to agree with the above.

A Big Hello from your newest member.

I recently came across your blog and just started to follow you, as I think it's great, so we might have a couple of things in common as I too have a hobby blog you might like to follow to at

So feel free to drop me a comment and hopefully become a member, keep up the good work. And hopefully I'll hear from you soon.
