A new toy for improving my photos on the blog arrived yesterday, a Lightbox.
I've been thinking about getting one for a while, and several readers have suggested that it would improve the quality of my photos. As I have been making an effort to improve my painting skills, it is only right that I try to improve my photos as well to showcase my new talents!
I purchased the lightbox after seeing @craig_paints talk about it on twitter. The one I bought was a TFJ studio LED lightbox. It was only £16.99 on Amazon, which seemed like a real bargain for me.
Here are some test photos that I took when it arrived.
|Lightbox and camera phone.|
|White background with flash.|
|Black background with flash.|
|Black background, no flash.|
Below are the ones I will probably use in the future. This is with the LED lightbox, a second light source at a perpendicular angle, black background and no flash on the camera.
What do you think? A big improvement? Any suggestions on improving the photos further?
