Taken in a cardboard box with tracing paper sides and a sheet of white paper. How can they even ask £20 for this?

Sorry to vote cold but really you can make a macro studio easily.

Hope ya don't mind the image just making a point. Google building a macro studio it's simple and will cost ya £2-3 if that. Next you just need good lights.

bought one of these from Maplin about 4 years ago for a tenner. Very good item, but still requires positioning of the camera to avoid flashback.

True but my point was theres really no need to pay out for this kinda thing it can be made very cheaply. Just my opinion though.

Agreed, I was pulling your leg, if you are starting out with light box photography you actually better building one yourself to get a better understanding of lighting techniques.

But I am far to long in the tooth for sticky back plastic and doublesided sticky tape :-D


Not bad price for 60cm, I noticed the Maplin one is 40cm I know it may sound trivial but that 20cm makes it more versatile

Hi,

It sounds like a few people on this thread know about photo's / camera's etc....

I'm looking for the most affordable way of getting hold of a backdrop to take pictures of my baby son. Just plain white, non reflective, just don't want to spend a fortune.

I'm going to purchase a prosumer 6 megapixel - ish camera from ebay, viewing some at about £60 - £80 and just wanted to know if the backdrop was something I could get hold of for a cheap price. Also, lighting options etc..etc... Don't want to spend a fortune, it's only going to be a hobby.

Any advice, help would be appreciated. Maybe now the best place to ask this question as it's not deal related as such, but reading responses on here got me thinking.

Thanks in advance for any answers I receive.

This looks good for anyone that runs a small e-business

40cm is about what my box is I think. It is a little restrictive but OK for most stuff. I might consider the Maplins one just cos it folds up nice and flat. Can't justify £20 for the Hama one though.

gizmo_gadgets: I'm no expert when it comes to studio style stuff but theres quite a few turorials on google on how to create studio setups for cheap. The lighting is probably the most important part of it all rather than the backdrops.

off to google now. Thanks

A decent flash off camera is always useful for portraits, failing that find a nice light room with those very thin net curtains as they diffuse and soften light nicely (although you still may need some fill flash) the important thing is to try and get natural light or create 'natural light'.

In terms of back drop... a cheap white sheet ironed to within an inch of its life and some clever draping of the sheet over cushions and then up to create the illusion your in a white room can be very effective... but takes some trial and error. My advice get a stuffed animal and practice before you try and take the actual portrait... kids won't give you the patience a stuffed animal will :thumbsup:

Seems a decent price for a 60cm box I think.

Wow... really? Is that the best you can contribute to this thread?


Seriously, go away and pick on someone elses punctuation flaws.




Oh I would like to also draw your attention to Exhibit A.

Very quick at scanning, quite slow printing and very noisy taking the paper in - like a 1900's factory machine!Well worth it for the price - I'm using it on 64bit Win 7.




1900's !?? possessives and contractions...this usage is neither.
