How to Make Your Own Lightbox for Under $7: A Video Tutorial

Boss TalkEmylee Williams5 Comments

A few weeks ago we shared an image that we had snapped with our iPhone inside a DIY lightbox. You guys wanted to know how to make your own so we decided to put together a little video for you that walks you through step-by-step. Having your own diffuser is key to creating white, bright and seamless images. You can shoot small objects inside your own diffuser to post to your Etsy shop, Instagram shots, product images and more.
