I have been procrastinating building a macro light box for sometime now. Thanks to Thea at That Yarn Store, I have been given a little push to finally get it done today. She has been posting lately on her adventures in becoming a better photographer. Check it out for some laymen's, non overwhelming and helpful ways to start being a better photographer.
When crafters start selling online at Etsy, photography becomes kind of a necessity. Did I mention I suck at this! I know that my cardboard light box won't transform my abilities, but it does make a statement that says-"Hey I'm trying!"
There are a lot of tutorials on how to build one of these. Just Google how to make a macro light box. Amazon also sells a couple for pretty cheap too, like this one. Just read the reviews before buying (helpful advice in those).
I want to stop having Etsy photo envy and start taking some better shots of my own. It can't hurt to try! I still need to get a better light source, but Gus my needle felted mouse gave me an A+ and an apple for my efforts! =)
