Have you ever used a light box to take pictures of your crochet projects? Or any craft projects? It's a completely different world. Up until now I would complete a hat or scarf around mid-night, naturally, that is the time I have to play with hooks. Mid-night, however, not so good for taking a picture to share it with the world. (world= facebook, instagram, and twitter..obviously.) :) There is a zero percent change of any natural lighting at that time. Then I would have the same internal fight; do I take a photo? Or do I press down my excitement and wait until the next chance I have at decent daylight to share my project? It was a 50/50 shot as to which one I would pick. Now I can go upstairs (I keep my light box setup in a storage room, see below) Stage and snap! I love it! The picture to the right; that was my first picture with the light box...unedited! To say I am thrilled is an understatement.
You can make one yourself! Here are few sites that show you how to DIY:
Digital Photography School
Handmadeology <----This one has a great tutorial on how to edit the photos as well. Highly recommend.
