A lot of people sell things online using only their phone to take photos of the products. A lot of products that are sold online are small and easy to light with an inexpensive diy light box. A light box gives you a nice even light over whatever you stick inside of it. It is essentially a soft box with the options to put lights on 4 of the sides. It can be used without light but putting lights on at least three of the sides gives the best results. I built two versions of the box. One of them can be built for $2 worth of materials, the other with about $20 worth of materials. In the videos below I show the process of building the boxes along with the materials that you will need to do so.
