no more lousy photos!
(teapot by Gary Rith, lightbox by Gary Rith and Missus Potsblog)
So my pictures are always terrible, until TODAY. I was complaining last week that my pottery pics are awful, and my old pal Gordo stepped in. He had seen an article where a fellow described how to make a photo light box out of duct tape and chewing gum using your Swiss army knife. Well, roughly speaking.
Alright, so we chopped holes in the sides of the box, installed bristol paper inside and lined it with white paper, then tracing paper over the holes and then proper 'daylight' light bulbs, and that's it. It is easy to see the parts I did, because tape is peeling off and it looks messy, my wife's half is very tidy and solid looking.
