A quick break from project 365 activities. I made a mini macro studio light tent. I thought it might be fun to photograph small objects, for what purpose I am not yet sure. It might come in handy in the dead of winter when I have nothing outside to photograph. It was quite easy and there were tons of instructional videos online. All you need is a box, tissue paper, construction paper and a couple of lamps. I bought the lamps for $20 at home depot and scavenged the rest of the stuff from odds and ends kicking around the house. Detailed instructions can be found here.


  1. I've done this. It's a great and fun way to photograph objects. Nice job.

  2. thanks brad... i may make a table top version since i don't have much space. cool!

  3. I need one of these boxes. So glad I decided to look through your photos tonight. You might save my night time attempts at photography.
