D.I.Y. Light tent
« on: January 29, 2013, 08:54:08 PM »
So been thinking about getting one of these then thought hang on why spend a shed load of money when they must be fairly easy to make, went to www.theworks.co.uk and got 5 20" x 20" canvasses for £1.99 each now just need to get/make some fixings to put and hold them together but then be able to dis-assemble it as well, then off to that well known Swedish shop for a couple of el-cheapo spotlight type thingys and hopefully away we go, then sort out loft take photos & flog the stuff we don't need on that well known auction site and make some room/money....Also got some black straws and card so gonna have a go at making a honeycomb grid as well for my flashgun  :) :tup:

yeah but thought it would be more fun to try making one so far I've spent a tenner, couple of ikea lights for about 1.99 each and i've got brackets n stuff already just need to work out how to put it all together so it's easy to take down again and i'll have saved myself about £15.00 (and we were already in Sutton where there's a works bookshop so no money wasted there as the missus wanted to go shopping there)
