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.

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.

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

Awesome purple, BTW.

Doc.

This logic will save you a lot of grief.


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