I decided to make a light tent for use with my newly acquired OCF gear.


Total cost: < 10 dollars


Things you'll need:


Cardboard box of sufficient size (I chose 18x18x16)

White Banner Paper


Fine-tipped sharpie (or pen)

Gaffer's Tape

Exacto Knife / Box Cutter



Start by measuring 2 inches in from the edges of 3 sides of the box, this will be your "paper window."
