Today I made a light box at no cost to myself. It can cost around $100 to buy an actual light box. Sure theirs can fold up...but mine is free so....
You really need to get your flash off the camera to make this look really good. I ordered a cheap wireless transmitter so I can do just that, however it hasn't come yet, so I positioned the box so that there was a wall about 18in to the right of the box. I tilted my flash so that it would bounce off that wall and then into the window that I cut out in the cardboard behind the white paper. This gave me a shot that was well lit and there was no glare from the flash on my Ipod. I am so excited about all the possibilities that having an off camera flash opens up.
These are some great pics that Hannah took while me and Ben blew out the candle on our birthday brownie.
Hannah would like everyone to know that she in fact whipped me at foosball. But not because she is competitive at all I assure you ;). Don't worry my wrists will be smoking fresh next time. (Still don't know what that means.)
Some more pics using my flash.
