Testing out the new lightbox

August 20, 2022 · in Uncategorized · · 9 · 0.8K

Bought one of those lightboxes that you can use to take pictures of smallish objects with proper lighting, so I thought I'd give it a try.

  1. Hello chap. Those models are all very nice. May I suggest something: I read in Finescale Modeler an article on how they took pictures and the guy insisted on light blue fabric at the bottom, a bit a la green or blue screen for special effects. I have one of those items myself (in french we call it a photo tent) and I purchased a piece of said fabric. Now I wonder if I will be able to manage a sewing machine...

  2. Great pictures and builds, Jay @jaybiga
    Seems like the lightbox does a great job, the lighting looks nice.

  3. Hi Jay, I made my own light box from white foam board, it isn’t any good for large models though, happy modelling.

  4. Not familiar with that but your models look great lightbox or no lightbox !
    More info,on what you got would be great.

  5. Thanks all! Your kind words are appreciated.

  6. Wonderful pics of wonderful models, Jay @jaybiga!

  7. Based on your photos, I think your lightbox is working perfectly. I bought one a couple of years ago and have never even taken it out of the box. I don't think I have the patience to keep dragging it out and putting it away. I use a piece of cloth that I clamp to some shelves on my work table. The real key is that the light on my worktable is adjustable to emit different colors of light from daylight to cool light, to a bluish light, etc.
