My passion for photography grows every minute. Even though I am no professional photographer, I have always wanted my very own studio with the necessary lighting equipment for a nice photo-shoot. Of course, it wasn’t possible as I live a nomadic life in London, having to move every 9 months. Painful. While browsing through Pinterest earlier today, I stumbled across this tutorial pin of a DIY photo light box, which looked so legit *lightbulb*
DIY Photo Light Box tutorial by Ninth & Bird
Legit it was. Since I love DIY projects, I gave it a go without hesitation
The materials needed to build this simple light box.
I tweaked the box a little bit since I only have scrap card board boxes laying around and replaced the white muslin fabric with white tissue paper (not the ones to blow your nose silly!)

The final product.
Cut out sides and top of the body sealed with one layer of tissue paper to spread out the lighting
Flimsy and doesn’t appeal aesthetically but it gets the job well done so far
