- A cardboard box
- Tracing paper
- Poster board (white or black)
One negative is that the tracing paper is fragile and may tear easily. One person on the post commented to use felt instead of the tracing paper.
Another post in Studiolighting.net uses white foam board instead of the cardboard box for the construction of the light box. This is worth trying as well.
I have included below pictures of my own box made with a cardboard box and pictures of some of my art prints.
|Cut off three sides of cardboard box.|

I am looking forward for your comments and to hear about your own experience with taking the best pictures to show off your items.
