DIY Light Tent Project

There are plenty of fancier DIY light tents on You Tube and plenty of fancier clips. I chose this one because it is just simple. No fuss, no frills but it shows you clearly how to make a light tent to improve image quality when you are photographing smaller objects. Yes, you can go down the shop and buy a light tent. Making one is a nice little project for children and adults alike. A rainy afternoon project, or a too hot to go outside project, or you have to stay in because there’s too much snow project. It would be a nice way to pass a couple of hours or a double lesson. Personally, I’d use baking paper instead of tissue paper since you can buy a whole roll and use it for baking as well as light tents! Tissue paper is not necessarily so easy to come buy. This way you can get everything in the supermarket. Part of the creativity could be to make it look really cool by using different tape colours and decoration. It needs to be kept simple, though, because the reflective white is the key. The other reason I chose this clip is because you can watch and build at the same time. It is clearly stepped in its procedure and so if you have your tablet, phone or laptop you can have the best of both worlds and use technology to be creative and then enhance your image production. Technology is a tool. It’s not an end in itself. I am always using my tablet to help me actually physically do something in the same way I see people use their phones to photograph someone doing something so they remember the steps. Happy building and happy clicking!
