Thread: Question for Jeannie! (Jean2)

  1. Question for Jeannie! (Jean2)

    Jeannie, Your shot is GORGEOUS of the ornament.

    What did you use for the reflection? Is that a mirror that is just reflecting the white of your lightbox? Or some sort of white laminate?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Amy! I chopped all my hair back off, and I needed a picture that looked a bit more like what I look like now.

    Hi Kelly and Amy! I have a piece I glass that used to be a shelf in my kids room. It's not clear but tinted grey. And then I just put a piece of white poster board under it and bent it up and behind the ornament in my light box. When I get home from work I will explain a bit further how I made my light box since there were some questions about it in the comments.

    Thank you for your kind comments every one! My lightbox is such a simple set up.
    Nothing fancy at all!! But it works for me. Here's a link to pretty much exactly what mine looks like . I used white tissue paper to diffuse the light. I tried to figure out how to put a photo I took of my set up, in this forum but nothing worked so I will just have to give you the link.
    I used a deep box. You cut square windows in the sides and the top. Not the bottom. I taped tissue paper over those windows so it diffuses the light. I taped a white poster board curved up to the top on in the inside of the box. You don't want any creases.
    Then 3 lights, one on each side and one on top and you have to buy the daylight bulbs not tungsten. But the setting on my camera is always on the tungsten setting and that seems to be best.

    Thank you Jeannie!!! I am going to be looking more into this! I am focusing on Valentine Mini Sessions for children. They will be held indoors and I am trying to research and see what I need to rent/buy for an indoor studio. It would be cool to make a light box big enough to hold people!
