tried to make a little light-box yesterday

I pieced this beauty together yesterday:

light-box

I know it doesn’t look like much (and it really isn’t), but it did -help- to reflect light back onto my objects and cast slightly less harsh shadows. I still had to run the bulk of the pictures through a photo editing program like photoshop or gimp to clean up the ‘white’ background.

It was an old box that I spray painted white and then had to go over again with acrylic.  For my next box, I will try a larger size and white heavy fabric to line it tight. More lights would also be beneficial.

Here’s an example of objects that still needed further background removal:
