So yesterday I went to Target and picked up a few things to make a homemade soft box to try and take some better watch photos.
The list of items I picked up:
1) An Itso storage cube (plastic)
2) A package of Classic home Napkins (4pack)
3) 2 Adjustable desk lamps
4) 2 Daylight 6500K bulbs
5) 1 multiple outlet power cord (3 outlets into one)
6) 1 Targus travel tripod (need a better one)
Then from the local Hobbie Lobby I picked up some 12"x12" background cards
Other items used in fabrication were a razor knife and zip-ties.
I cut out the inner framing of both sides and the top of the storage cube. This left me with a pretty good skeletal structure to attach the Napkins to. On the side of the cube were holes already punched through the plastic in the corners, so this made it easy for me to make some small cuts in the napkins and zip-tie them snug, and that's it!
So here are some of the shots I took last night. I really didn't play with the lighting too much last night, I just really wanted to see how well the box would work. And none of these were post processed as well. Not bad for a late night project!
Photos were taken with a Canon G7. It would be much better if the tripod were of better quality and I had a cable release (I used the 2 sec delay)
THE HERC !
