Cheap Photo Tent
 
After Doc decided to give me some Crap for using a paper towel to make a backdrop i decided to give making my own tent a shot.

First of all I went to Target and got a nice rubber maid container for 6 dollars.

Second after getting permission from the girlfriend to ruin an old sheet I used a hot glue gun to glue it in best I could.... and trim up the edges and throw a desk lamp up on top that I already had.

* excuse crappy cellphone picture *

I then took this picture of something I anodized Sunday... Pump arm was done in an earlier batch its also gloss and not matte like the frame.

Most of the stuff I used was from around the house if I bought it all new it would probably still be under 25 dollars.

I would unglue it from the bottom corners, so you can create a more seamless background. Or you could use white posterboard.

actually im putting another set of sheets in there for that :P

You know you could have got some clothes pins and just draped the sheet over the chair you have there. Saved yourself 6 bucks and a sheet.

-I did? :D

Nice results, by the way. Though you need just a little more front lighting on that grip frame photo.

Awesome purple, BTW. :D

Doc.

This logic will save you a lot of grief.


You'll be broke... but peaceful, and that's what matters.
