This is what I came up with and after a little practice, the pictures came out a million times better. I highly recommend that anyone taking photos of any items to sell on etsy or ebay take the time to make a lightbox. The two lights I bought were $6 each at Lowes and the box and tissue paper I already had. The construction took all of a half hour. Definitely worth the time and money for the results I'm getting.

I have made a lightbox!!!
A comment from many of guildmates at PCAGOE was that my photos were dark and it was hard to see many of my pieces. I totally agreed but had no idea how to fix the problem. I take all my photos in my dark basement studio. Linda from nkdesigns and Susan from BOLDstreet gave me some great suggestions on tweaking the camera settings and lighting techniques. (THANKS GUYS!!!) So I decided to make a lightbox with the help of all the great diy tutorials out there.
