When I received a package of Duck EZ Start Premium Packaging Tape from Shoplet Office Supplies to review, I knew right away that I wanted to use it to create a light box where I could play around with the camera’s settings in a different environment.
I wanted a nice clean and sturdy box, so I picked up a new one from the Depot that was 18″square. They come flattened, so I used my Duck Tape to close the bottom of the box and reinforce the edges. The “EZ Start” part really proved to be true, and I had no trouble at all with this tape sticking to itself (unlike practically every other brand I’ve ever used!).
After the bottom of the box was closed up I cut a 14″ square window in 3 of the sides, leaving a 2″ border around all of the edges. Leave the original top of the box open, as this will now become the opening in the front of your light box from which you’ll take your photos.
