You can have as many different, colorful, and unique backgrounds for your picture light box that you want!
I photograph jewelry. So do a lot of other people. On places like Etsy, or Ebay, if your photos suck...well your product isn't going to sell.
There are a ton of wonderful homemade light boxes out there, and for a while, that's all that I used. I did however, break down and buy myself a professional lightbox. It cost me about $40. However, just for the camera tripod and the lights, it was MORE than worth it.
The light box sets up like a tent and comes with a piece of fabric that is reversible, gray on one side, blue on the other.
<===== Pretty nice huh? Not bad for not knowing the first thing about photography.
Here was my kicker though. I LOVE color. I wanted something more than gray or blue, but didn't want to spend oodles of money!
So I searched and searched and came up with this! It works great and altogether the entire project cost me about $5. I went to my local Wally World and straight to the fabric section I went. There I found a bin with cut offs for about 20-65 cents each. Each one was almost a yard of fabric, if not sometimes a bit more. VOILA! My new backgrounds!
The first thing you need is some velcro. I bought some with tape already on the back.
