Light Box-ness

A while ago I finally made a light box/tent (whatever you want to call it) using this tutorial and have been meaning to post about it.  I've been meaning to make one for a while, but never did even though I had all of the supplies.

Turns out, it was pretty easy.  Eventually I'd like to invest in some better lighting, but the daylight bulbs and clamp lamps did the job for now!  So, here it is, in all of its cardboard glory....

I went a little crazy testing out backgrounds (8.5x11 sheets of paper) and photographing different objects.  There had to be about 1,000 pictures when I was done.  Here are just a few below...

Some antique Italian chandelier crystals that I have sitting around, waiting to be used for something...

The charm bracelet I will be wearing on my wedding day that my mom gave me for my 18th birthday.  I add charms to it whenever I get to travel.

My favorites so far are the hot pink and bright blue backgrounds.  It's amazing what you can do with a cardboard box and some lightbulbs!  Oh, and a little bit of help from Photoshop (only a little, I promise).
