I built a relatively cheap diffusion box setup some time ago. You may see my setup in detail in my earlier update. I decided to start experimenting the lightbox by shooting my passion and addiction – coffee! For now, I’ll just publish the photos and let you know my three rules to follow to make excellent coffee. I’ll tell you more about lightbox photography after studying it...
I have had multiple times a need to shoot objetcs in diffused light. A diffusion box (lightbox) scatters light and makes shadows faint – ultimately your object will have no shadows. This technique is particularly common in commercial product photography. I built my own good entry level lightbox setup with minimal budget.
I took some start time-lapses last summer while visiting French Alps. Here’s a short clip of what I got. Both nights ended up to be quite cloudy. However, I catched Milkyway and got some good practice. ;)
How do you define a photo? How many photos do you need to see in a second to call it a video? How about mixing these two formats? Cinemagraphs do this.
