DIY PROJECT: MAKE YOUR OWN LIGHT TENT

New Zealand D-Photo - - PRO AT HOME DIY LIGHT TENT -

A bit of Kiwi in­ge­nu­ity never goes amiss, and, here at we take that one step fur­ther to cre­ate our own pho­to­graphic equip­ment — this time in the form of a DIY light tent

• A small card­board box • White tis­sue pa­per • White photo pa­per / card • Scis­sors • Tape • The prop(s) you want to shoot Have you got your scis­sors ready? Here’s how it all worked … First, Croy chopped up the box so that there was a square hole in the top and on both sides. He then cov­ered all the gaps with white tis­sue pa­per, which would dif­fuse any light source that would be aimed to­wards the tent. From there, a piece of glossy white photo pa­per was in­serted into the box to cover the floor and slope up the back, and the prop — in our case, a grassy squir­rel — was placed in­side. All up, it took about 30 min­utes to cre­ate and set up. Croy then tri­alled the light tent in two sit­u­a­tions.
