Let there be light!

I've been really struggling to take good pictures of my mini's to upload onto this blog. So, on the advise of my fellow leadhead, Oli (, I have created a Photobooth. I googled how to make one and stumbled upon a great blog (forgot which one, sorry!) which showed how to make one. Using a cardboard box, some aluminium foil and a backdrop and you have a very cost effective photobooth. Here's what I came up with in 20 mins:

Now, it's pretty basic and the backdrop is terrible but this is what some test photo's look like:

The backdrop is unbelievable crap and something I will look to improve, but the photobox seems to do to the job. Eat your heart out David Bailey!


  1. Pics come out really nicely from that little box. How big is it?
    Already though about buying a foldable one because having such a box standing around wouldn't please the wife.
    And thanks for the shoutout mate.

  2. The box is 240cm by 19cm. It doesn't take up too much space, but I know what you mean. No doubt I will eventually sit on it by mistake and crush the damn thing!
