New light box

My new light box finally came in, and I figured I’d share some of my tester shots –

White background test –


Red background –


Blue background –


Blue is kind tough to work with. Plus Swindle doesn’t really photograph well.

Black –


White seems to be the best, but I like how much easier it is to work with. More to come!


  1. That’s awesome. I’ve actually started the planning stages of my first ever light box. How big is yours? I’m thinking mine will have to big enough to photo two Fort Maxes so I can do comparison shots when the Encore comes out. What materials did you use, cardboard or wood?

  2. Thanks man! I actually just bought this one, I tried making my own but it was terrible, so I just found a relatively cheap one for 30 bucks or so. Try – that’s where I got mine.

    If you want to make your own, try this link –

    Yeah, you’ll need a super big box for two Maxes, but that’ll sure be awesome!

      1. No problem! Whether you buy one or build one, they sure help with pictures!

  3. I need to get a light box, it’ll probably vastly improve my photos than my current deplorable foam board setup that isn’t working that well. I need to check out different types to fit my needs.

    1. They help a lot. You can make one, or there are many out there that you can buy, either way it’s worth it!

      1. I can tell for sure, I’ve got at least a decent camera would suck for sure to continue to use a lousy setup for photos…That’s something to look into before the end of the year.

        Any Recommendations for ones that are good and reliable on the market and relatively cheap?
