A portable studio photo box is designed to shoot small objects in a studio-like set-up. This is most often used in product photography to make an object more appealing and isolate it from the outside world. The exact set-up of your box may be different, but they all work essentially the same way: Lights shine through a material on either side of the object. The result is clean, professional photography.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Open up your studio box if it is collapsible and place the object inside of it.

  2. 2

    Set a light on one side of the box and shine it through the material. This will soften the light to illuminate the object.

  3. 3

    Place another light on the other side of the box and shine it through as well.

  4. 4

    Place your camera so that the backdrop of the studio box and the object fills the frame. Focus your camera and take the photo.

Tips and warnings

  • Play around with the position, angle and distance of the lights from the box to create different light effects.
