Whilst wandering around the model show at the weekend, I came across a trader selling portable lightboxes for macro/small stuff photography. At £14.00 I didn’t think I could go wrong. And I didn’t! I set it up at home this evening just to try it out, and it’s very good and very neat as it packs up into a small bag about 8 inches square. Nope I don’t know what that is in cm but google would tell you :). It comes with 4 backgrounds, and has a dimmer switch for the lights, which you work via USB leads to your laptop. Here it is in action..
Here’s the result,
and now I have to clean my lens as it showed up every bit of dust and dirt 🙄🤣
Any ways this will be useful for Phil to photograph his little men or smaller tanks too, which is good as he paid for it 🤣.
