I think I’m done relying on Amazon for all of my impulse photography accessory purchases. After the crafty DIY month that was October, I’m thinking that I’d like to carry on the momentum and continue doing my best to take the DIY approach when I need something. Last week I really needed to capture some Shots of Maddie and Evie for their Instagram profiles and I wanted to improve the quality of their posts by taking the pics with my DSLR camera as opposed to taking them with my phone. The lighting situation in my apartment isn’t bad, we get a lot of light in because we have large windows that let in a tonne of light. I’m also lucky because since the lighting is generally pretty good I have a lot of options for backdrop, seeing as I can have the girls pose almost anywhere in the apartment and they’ll be basked in sunlight That being said there’s always room for improvement, so I thought about how I should go about boosting my camera’s built in flash. After some research I decided I wanted to use a soft box because my ceilings are quite high and a bounce method of lighting wouldn’t result in the exact kind of look I was looking for. So, I took matters into my own hands and went on Pinterest to find images of DIY soft boxes. After some research and some thought I brought together some materials and started making the soft box. This isn’t a step by step tutorial on how to make a soft box, but rather a few pics of how I went about making my own.
If you have questions about how I made it or want to share some info about how your DIY went, please leave a comment!
