The Importance of a White Box

A white box is an absolute must for lots of people – photographers, bloggers, etsy sellers and many more. It it a white lined box which gives a neutral and light filled photo of whatever object you place inside it. Ever wonder how some people manage to make their crafts or products look like they are floating in mid air? It’s because they have a white box.

Want one? Don’t worry, to make your own you don’t need to fork out a load of cash. In fact you can make a pretty mean version using the most basic of supplies and as an added bonus, it only takes ten minutes. Even if you’re only photographing things to sell on Ebay, they produce a top class photo which will help to really sell your item.

To make a white box all you need is – a cardboard box, double sided tape, white card/thick paper

To assemble:

  1. Cut down one side of you box (Fig. 1)
  2. Using a craft knife and cutting board, measure out the sides of you cardboard box and cut out using your white card (Fig. 2-4)
  3. Finally do the same and cut out a base in white card (Fig.5)
  4. Using double sided tape, stick each of the white boards in place. And that’s it. You’re ready to get photographing. Place the box in a well lit space (either naturally or using lamps) and place you’re object inside and snap away.

As you can see I’ve been getting busy using my light box. It’s all for a secret cause to be revealed in the next day or two…. I can’t wait to tell you! Happy snapping.
