YES! Bringing an old lab light home from dad's lab at the school. Hasn't been used in a long time but it still works. It's made for microscopes but it's super bright and will work GREAT.

I own no studio lights, and only one speedlite. What I'll do is take a long exposure in a dark room and manually fire the speedlite from multiple locations, simulating the effect of having many lights. Consistent white balance is a plus.

The image I posted earlier had an exposure time of 15 seconds.

Here's another at 10s:

I made mine out of PVC - three clip lights and a bed sheet cut and sewn.

a vellum is an option instead of bedsheets.

That's a brilliant idea. Will have to try.

Light Box

Slapped one together tonight. I might rebuild the box. 12.5x17.5x18.5 HxWxD does seem a little smaller than I think would be nice, but this works nicely for small scenes. Just a cut up heavy box that was going to get tossed out anyway, a few dollars of cheap white fabric from the clearance bin, some clothes pins, few feet of tape, and a few pins.

Ended up going out to buy three cheap lamps. Two little goose neck lamps for lighting the sides, and a double arm for over head.






I'm thinking playing with this kind of lighting is going to be fun, and I bought more than enough fabric to setup several sizes.

Now I just need more stuff to play with inside it.

My first "light box" was seamless photo paper my wife got from work, clamps from Home Depot, a TV tray, a desk lamp and an old clamp style lamp. I clipped tracing paper to the lamps to act as diffusers. I now shoot on a shooting table with studio lights.

Edit: This was just taken using the same method Mike descirbed above. I set the camera to 15 seconds and used my shoe mounted flash with a softbox on it for the light source. The flash was off the camera, I just hit the "test" button. I literally crawled out of bed to take the shot, quick edit and then upload.

This was setup on a quickly improvised shooting table consisting of a
  • card table
  • Six clamps (two 2" and 4 1")
  • four straight and four 90* pieces of PVC (to hold up the top of the paper)
  • old piece of seamless photo paper
  • foam core


Now I'm going back to bed.

I made mine out of a few pieces of foam board. I use a piece of white paper that covers up the corners. I have 3 lights, 2 coming from the front and one from the top. They're simple desk lamps that I got from Home Depot.
