Treated Myself To A Photography Lightbox :)

Lightbox

 

I’ve been looking at getting a lightbox for a while to make taking photos of food easier. I had mentioned to Ant about making one but last week I decided to go ahead and buy one.

I checked lots of reviews on Amazon and found a good one then checked eBay to compare prices. It was cheaper on eBay so ordered it.
The parcel didn’t take long to arrive. I opened it, put it all together and I was very excited. It was bigger than I’d imagined. I’m going to have to use the dining table rather than the kitchen counter but that’s not a problem.

I haven’t had chance to try it out yet as I’ve not done any recipes recently but I’m going to do a new one tomorrow just so I can give it a go 🙂

The only thing I’m not very happy with is the different coloured inserts for the background. The photo on eBay shows them fitting perfectly but when I put them in, there are gaps down the sides.

The red insert needs ironing but even when ironed, it’s not going to fit properly.

If it becomes a problem, I’ll just buy some fabric and make my own so it fits properly.
