How-To: Sun-Powered Cardboard Photo Light Box

Along with several of my crafty pals, I’m currently participating in a blog hop of craft photography tips and tricks. One of my favorite posts thus far is this simple cardboard photo light box tutorial from Megan at RadMegan. She’s a California gal, so her version is lit by the sun. But if, like me, you’re living in a gloomier part of the world, I recommend the always reliable three-clamp-lights lighting method!

If you’d like more craft photography-related tips and tools, you can see the rest of the posts in the blog hop here.

    Thanks Haley, for mentioning the 3 light option for those who DON’T live in a part of the world that is sun-drenched every day, all day. (I really would love a few more cloudy days!) And thanks for the CRAFT mention! I heart CRAFT!
