Light box
« on: May 25, 2007, 06:49:11 PM »

I went to the bother of building a light box, buying two lamps and daylight bulbs and getting a better make of camera than i had and buying a tripod.
And now i find i can taking more true to colour picture's with my old camera, using a brown carboard box, holding the camera and using the camera's flash.  :shrug:

I'm not saying this is the way to do it but give it a go and see if it improves your picture's.
I don't have to use the auto colour or contrast anymore but i think i need lower powered daylight bulbs to help with my good setup.

We all reinvent the wheel every now and then.
