I did an Etsy online workshop the other day about how to take better pictures. They explained how to make a light box to better shot jewelry and this is my very own light box
To make the box is very simple:
Materials: A box, scissors, tape, white paper
Just cut the sides, even the top if you want, of the box. Tape white paper in the sides, and top. Tape also white paper in the interior of the box, that will be your background ... Voilà! you have a light box!
I placed the box so the natural light will enter through one of the sides of the box but I shot pictures also with a table lamp in the side of the box, the white paper diffuses the light very well.
