Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Do you know where to get the gray backgrounds at?

mathieu basset says:

Excellent tutorial ! Thank you so much 🙂

I’ve put the light on the top of the box, but i get a light reflection on the top of the product… Do you have any tips to correct that ?

Interesting idea home studio, I have only one recommendation as a photographer: Check that there are no shadows of the product. In this case the image 2 (the gel), another light lateral offset places the product or otherwise. But overall it’s a good job. I congratulate you.

This is the first video I actually sat through and added to favorites without words. Nicely done and very clear to understand. Thanks for this video! It helped me a lot.

wow, surprised by the results, it didnt look that bright when the pictures were being taken, what kind of setting are used for the camera???

If you are having such a difficult time with shooting, I would just take the jewelry pieces into natural sunlight, preferably a shaded area, a clean background and shoot on automatic. Cloudy days are the best because it gives you nice even lighting and get a tripod to keep the camera stable.

CandidAnn says:

I’m glad this vid helps. I took a look at your Etsy store and the photos are not bad at all. Best of luck to you.

michemozaix says:

thanks for uploading this vid! I do a lot of product photography for my Etsy store and my pics are pretty bad– lol! This should help a lot… it’s the best video I’ve seen for making a lightbox and I like the use of the t-shirts.

maineiacts says:

NOW THAT’S INGENUITY FOR YOU!! So simple too,,,although,,I would think it cheaper to buy USEd T-Shirts if not dirty? But,if you can get an XL or better,,for like 5 bux each,,that’s still a good bargain!! And what kind of poster board?? Matte or Glossy??…worth looking into for a nice rainy day project,as it looks like a heck of a storm going on judging by the view in the window of the weather outside,,lol!!! The tidy whities was cute too 😉 THANK YOU SO MUCH!! EXCELLENT VIDEO!!


Terrific video! I love the lightbox.
Thanks for speeding up the film, gave it a fun Keystone Cops feel (though the results look very professional.)

Babou1n says:

WOW, it’s very interesting, I’ll try to make one ^^

MrLazodelavega says:

hi im from mexico and i dont find that kind of lamp, what other kind of lamp do you recomend, thanks.

evileyez504 says:

i tried this and the pictures come out dark or with a vignette or yellow…

CandidAnn says:

Absolutely, that’s the beauty of this light box. You can use any color background since it’s just a matter of changing the paper. If you can get the shower curtain to hold up, go for it.

jjualvare says:

I think this is a perfect example of keeping it simple. Can you use a black back ground with this setup and why not use a white shower curtain?
