DIY Photography Light Box
We spent $9.00 to make this DIY 16″ x 16″ x 16″ photography light box and about 30 minutes to make it. The cheapest 16″ photography light box on Amazon is going for $27.99.
Time needed: 30 minutes.
How to Make a Photography Light Box
- Gather Your Materials
1 Cardboard Box. 16x16x16
2 Sheets of Poster Board
3 Sheets of Plastic Poster Board
1 Shart Utility Knife
Hot Glue Gun
- Measure and Cut Box
Measure and mark 1.5 inches in on all for sides of your box.
Repeat until you have 3 sides and the top of the box marked.
Cut the box along the lines until you have all for panels removed.
- Line the Inside with Poster Board
Measure and cut your poster board.
Line the inside with white poster board and use hot glue to attach it.
- Measure and Cut Plastic Poster Board
Measure the plastic poster board to cover 3 of the 4 holes in the box you cut.
Use your hot glue gun to attach the 3 panels.
That is it and now you are ready to use your new photography light box. You will need 3 lights for your box. Use as high a wattage that you can find. Old fashion incandescent lights will produce extreme heat so be careful not to melt your plastic screens if you go that route. I suggest led lights as they are low heat.
