Since I work in a grocery store, there is always an abundance of empty boxes, I picked one up before I left work last week and set out to make one of my own. It may not be the best construction job in the world but it was fun playing and creating something.
The article doesn't tell you how to set up the lights outside the box so I did some experimenting with small lamps set around the box. Keep in mind here that I am no expert when it comes to taking pictures and my point and shoot camera is the only piece of photography equipment that I own other than a tripod. The pictures I got, while not perfect, were better than if I just had the objects sitting out on a table in the open.
You see, I was using touch lamps on either side of the box and Mr. Duke felt that the light source was perhaps a little too much and kept turning the lamp off with his nose. I guess setting this up on the floor while the dog was around wasn't the best idea....lol
Maybe with a lot more experimenting and playing around I'll get it perfected. I hope the box holds out.
