With encouragement from my friends and colleagues, I’m pursuing a more polished look for the glamour photos of my work. To do this, I searched online for a few examples of homemade lightboxes, and combined elements to suit my needs. I built this collapsible setup with foam core, cotton fabric, and white duct tape, and incorporated the graduated paper that I’d already been using. I also bought two clamp lights on Amazon, and attached them to folding chairs on either side. What a difference it’s making in the quality of my photos, and with only a $160 investment.
