A studio in a box

We decided to yield to temptation and check out the macro specials at Dan's Camera City.  These were "in-store" specials - which means you have to actually have to get off the couch, put on some shoes, and go to Dan's Camera City.  I'm rusty at that type of shopping, but it's always fun to visit Dan's, and one of the specials was something I've always wanted - a light box.

This one is the Promaster Still Life LED Studio 2.0, the 24" x 24" version.  It's basically a big nylon box, held together with lots of Velcro, which means it can be easily knocked down for storage (a plus).  The inside is lined with reflective material and there are two strips of scorchingly bright LEDs on the top.  It comes with three backdrops (white, black, blue) that attach with more Velcro.  (I'm going to try making my own backdrops too.)

Put your subject inside, turn on the lights, and you have a lovely, bright environment with minimal shadows.  I have it set up on a small table where it just fits.  

The wrestlers love it.

It’s perfect for the plastic people!!! (And perhaps for avocado toast???)
