My project for the Vapor Pro Product shot was an adventure into Do-it-yourself ingenuity, stolen, I mean borrowed from the legendary David Hobby (King of cheap and lighting genius).
So instead of buying online on ebay or Adorama a light box that was 30 bucks or more and then have to wait for the shipping on it. I decided to build my own box out of
- white construction paper
- and foil
The setup was simple enough, I had the side panels replaced with thin white paper, the inside lined with a large poster board and the top I used foil as a reflectant for top down lighting. A canon 580ex ii on one side and a Nikon SB-25 on the otherside. Both triggered by my Alien Bees Cybersyncs. If I had my 3rd flash I would have used that instead for top light, but the foil added just enough light to make it look great!
Here are some of the final samples.
