March Light Box-Along Project


photo by Lee Meredith,

While participating in the February Craft Social (a monthly Twitter event/gathering about chatting crafty), a few twitterers and I discussed the fact that winter has a lack of good natural light for photography, which is tough when you’re a blogger and your project photos depend on said natural light.

Light boxes were mentioned. Tutorials for light boxes were linked to. A light box-along was thought of. Interest was expressed. A few more times.

So here it is, the March Light Box-Along.

What do you do?
Make a light box. Post about it on your blog and on twitter with the hashtag #lightboxalong and if you have room #craftsocial.

What’s a light box?
A small box used to aid in photographing objects by providing uniform lighting.

How do I make one?
Follow one of these tutorials or get the basics from reading them and make one your own way.

Share your results:

  • Post on your blog
  • #lightboxalong and #craftsocial on Twitter
  • Add photos to the Light Box-Along group on Flickr
  • Comment here with your progress and links

Feel free to add links to other tutorials or your blog, or weigh in on any other aspect of the Light Box-Along in the comments.
