I had set up a sort of photo booth in a closet in my studio/office, but it never worked quite right and I stopped trying to use it. So, I started looking for a "real" photo booth set-up and came across a video on how to make your own. I made a list of the things I would need and got it all in one trip (this is special because I usually get one thing, then another, then another and the project takes forever or I lose interest). I already had one lamp and the tracing paper I used for the windows.
|Cut up foamcore. I ended up cutting|
these down before I cut the windows
to fit better in the closet space.
|Windows cut in foamcore. |
I neglected to take photos of taping the
tracing paper to the windows or taping
the windows together.
|Here are the windows covered in tracing paper|
and taped together. The poster board is cut and
taped to the top back of the thing.
This is the two-light set up.
|Sample shot with two lights - top|
and right side. These photos weren't
touched up at all.
|Sample shot with three lights.|
This is a shot with three lights and the items raised on the plexiglass. There is no shadow (except from the thing the plexi was sitting on). I didn't clean up the photo at all. Not sure if I like them floating like that...
Now I have no excuse for not posting new items!
