I was gifted a lightbox for Christmas, and I really liked the idea of not having to go outside or wait until daylight to take a picture. It’s supposed to be a convenient way to take photos. But since I set it up, I HATE the lighting- It’s extremely artificial and harsh lighting. It’s great for selfies, but not for photographing jewelry. Have any of you ever worked with one before? Am I doing something wrong?
which brand lightbox. can you post a picture of the set-up, location of light and type of lighting.
also make, model camera used and the settings it was on when photo taken.
I just bought one too and am not thrilled either. And I am too lazy to go to the computer with Photoshop.
Me too. My iPad takes better pictures than the camera I used to own so I use it. When there’s no outside lighting available, I use the bathroom counter which had six led natural daylight bulbs over it. Gives a good representation of the turquoise color most of the time. No Photoshop but I do use the edit feature on the iPad to auto adjust the lighting and crop the edges. Voila-done!
I would also like to know. Maybe a combination of lighting like full spectrum grow lights mixed with whatever is in the box? And I see now I’m repeating what islandmomma just said right now, lol!
Colored reflector cards placed close but just out of the shot can change the look and feel quite a bit for little to no money. Always a challenge to clip/tape/drape/prop them just right though. You can use colored construction paper or anything else that has the color you want.
Maybe we should just find out what’s in the grow box.
