Hi guys - My new lightbox turned up today, so hopefully my photography standards will pick up a bit. I need to practice with it to get the best results. Had a quick go and snapped a couple of pics of "gui le gros" which you can see in my workbench thread. They're not great because it was ten o'clock at night and I didn't spend enough time eliminating the shadows fully by playing with the light positioning.
The lightbox cost thirty quid and came with two daylight lamps, three coloured backdrops and a white backdrop (but I may go back to using plain white paper as it looks "cleaner").
The whole thing flods flat into a kind of built-in-bag. It also comes with a camera tripod which I think is excellent value all in all.
(It came from Amazon btw - do a google search for "lightbox photography amazon" if you want one).
Heres some pics....
The rig set up

You get two of these...

The stands retract into the handles and are spring loaded and very stable. One minor criticism is that the housing of the light itself heats up very quickly.

When finished it all folds up extremely neatly, making storage and mobility excellent.

I have the same one! The only thing I would want is brighter lights, but other than that I love it. I usually put a hanger through the handle and hang it up in my closet just to keep it out of my way when it's not being used
I am happy to take commissions! visit my website
I have this one too easy to setup too :p
