    How to make a 2 minute Light box

    Alright.
    To make a light box in 2 minutes, you'll need these items:

    4 Pieces of white printer paper.
    2-6 Hard Back thick books
    Tape
    Light source
    Near an power outlet


    Start by setting the light source next to the nearest outlet.



    Next tape the printer paper to the hard back books.
    Tape it in multiple places... The bottom, two times on the side and on the other side. So the paper won't be round.



    Tape a piece of paper to the wall so it's bottom edge is touching the carpet/floor. Once that is done, put a piece of paper on the floor connecting the bottom edge of the paper taped to the wall. Next put the books on both sides. Turn on the light! (Use florescent, they get whiter than regular bulbs.)



    Your done! Check corners, adjust the paper and then put the snake in there!

    Whites will be dulled with digital cameras, this can be fixed with photoshop or GIMP.

    Thanks for looking!!
    Hope this works!!!

    Re: How to make a 2 minute Light box

    I thought a light tent is so you difuse the light, so no direct light hits the snakes.

    I would suggest trying a piece of thin white sheet over the top or something to make it where the light will not shine directly on the snake.

    No problem.
    I see how the light box at the last picture really put his colors out.

    How to make a 2 minute Light box (Improved)

    Alright Here's a better light box...

    Get a box like so... Preferably one like so:

    If the box isn't white, just paint it with Appliance paint.

    Things you might need for this...



    A hole saw
    White Duck Tape
    Box cutter
    Scissors


    1. Cut the flaps of the box off shown here(Xbox box):



    2.Cut the top flap of the box off too:


    3.Tape the flaps that are connected to the other side flaps that you had trimmed off.


    4.Use the hole saw to cut two holes as seen here, One on the top for light. One on the side for putting the snake in and taking pictures... Also the hole on the side, it will be a circle. Cut off any extra parts that may be in the way.


    Finished Project.

    and


    ** If needed, With the xbox box... use a paint brush to fill in any nicks or scratches in the box or any cracks... **
