make: blog

congrats to make's blog on winning the 2007 bloggie for best craft blog! i was scanning the site and came across so many great projects but this was one i thought would be of special interest to any designers out there. good photography is often expensive and tricky but make has a post on how to make a $10 lightbox that gives you pretty spectacular product shot results. not a bad way to take some initial photos of your work to send to the press and shops...click here for the full post.

I've made this light box from their instructions and had great results! I used vellum instead of tissue paper - a little more durable but with the same result.

Thanks for sharing this. I wonder if anyone thinks you could substitute wax paper?

It's sorta kinda unfair to post this as being Make's writing. It's a post with a link to another weblog, Strobist, which has some FANtastic photography how-tos and articles on off camera lighting for DIYers, hobbyists, and professionals.

Check him out.

Go Strobist!! I've just about read through most of his archive. What a great surprise to see him here. One of the most helpful photography websites on the net.
