    New light box

    Got myself a new Light Cube soft photo tent from Ebay - cost £4.99

    This is the first picture taken with it - using only my desk lamp positioned above it, so not the brightest of lamps basically - but the results are amazingly good.


    These two images also show that a Breitling Titanium Aerospace can look as good today as it looked when I bought it in 1999 - 10 years ago! AND it is worn every day as my daily beater.

    Also I took these very quickly hand held with a normal lens - just because I'd unpacked it and HAD to have a quick try out.
    So if you want to take studio type pics close and don't do DIY with cardboard boxez etc, this is about as cheap as you can get.

    A timely post! I have been looking for an easy way to take great photos. This beats a lot of DIY set ups that I've seen in cost and convenience.

    I just bought one for less than $15 on eBay in the US.

    Thanks!

    I wish I'd been on commission!!

    I mentioned this kit to a few friends and also on another forum - amazed at how many have suddenly bought one!
    But it IS good and being into photography anyway, I'm finding more and more things to try out.

    I got mine from "frontline-sell" seller on UK Ebay if of interest.

    Thanks for the heads up Boswell. Just ordered one from your supplyer. I'm fed up with my home made cardboard and tissue one. Yep, you should have been on commission.
    PS Nice Breitling and nice photo.
