Portable Photo Studio

When I got back from AZ for the holidays, I had an exciting package awaiting my return:

My best friend sent me a portable photo studio!!

It's funny, I had actually planned to make a small photo studio using the tutorial I found here when I returned from the holidays, and now I don't have to!

And of course the fact that it's portable and thus easily flattened and stored definitely makes my husband happy. I'm sure he would've just loved having a DIY cardboard box studio hanging out around the house!

It pops up so easily, and is a good size to fit most things I would shoot (such as my model here, Simon.)

It also comes with two light sources and a small tripod.

And the gray background is reversible!

Of course, it's completely removable as well. For the shot below of the garlic dicer, I just attached some parchment paper from my kitchen to use as the background!

I just love that I now have an easily storable way to do some great shots. What a great gift!

  2. What a great gift! Off to check this out and maybe get one!

  3. So jealous of your gift! FUN!

  4. My BIL got me one of these for Christmas. I haven't pulled it out yet to play with it because I know if I do, I'll be taking pictures all day! haha! But I've been making new items for my etsy shop so it will have to come out soon!
