Homemade Light Box

My new homemade light box setup for shooting photos of toys.

 

Three 150 watt clip lights from Home Depot, some sheets of colored paper from Blick, one cardboard box, some tissue paper, tape and a broken tripod I had laying around for the front light stand. Total cost about $40 (not counting the camera, tripod or table since I had all those already).

 

I think I'll spring for a couple more cheap tripods to hold the side lights so I can have a little more flexibility, but otherwise I'm happy with the new setup.
