Lighting for Photos

My photography skills are quite basic, so I asked my husband for help each time I wanted to post something on ETSY, Pinterest or Facebook. I wanted a clean, bright consistent look to my little creations. However,  I didn't want to ask my husband all the time and if I took the photos myself, I ended up spending lots of time touching them up on photoshop.

So, I made a light box!

Very simply, it is a cardboard box with the sides and top cut out. I taped white tissue paper over the cut out areas and found three lamps to shine the same amount of light into the box. I use 'Daylight' bulbs at 5000K for bright and clean light. The results is consistent, white background with limited shadows and consistent photos regardless of what time of day it is!
