Taking pic­tures of our art­icles just got a lot easier. And faster! Thanks to the spiffy light weight light box Ben bought last month. The cube is a soft white fold­able mater­ial, very use­ful in small, con­fined craft spaces (hello! That would be me/us). Prayer Beads

During today’s first round of exper­i­ments I found that even in dark gray winter light you can get some pretty good images, using our nice but aver­age cam­era. When the sun star­ted dip­ping low on the hori­zon I used a flashlight/torch shin­ing down from the top of the box gave a muted effect. I may use that trick again with a brighter bulb.

P1160717In min­imal light col­ours glow amaz­ingly.  Details are cap­tured without hours of manip­u­la­tion. Phew! Having a port­able back­drop means there’s no need to hide a messy craft area/desk/table/floor/whathaveyou.

I’d like to spend more time work­ing with the addi­tional col­our back­drops and play with more and less light. I have a feel­ing future images will be improved as I learn to get the most out of this tool. So far, so darn good I can’t stop smiling. Smile

Thanks to Ben for find­ing this little gem. It lights up our art­icles with a warm, yet unfuzzy cam­era ready glow. I sus­pect his evil plan has worked; expect more blog posts and Etsy list­ings from me this Spring!
