Basement light tent

Kate’s at knitting tonight, so I finished the light tent in the basement, using oak dowels, a paper dropcloth, and lots of black duct tape. It turned out to be huge, much bigger than I had anticipated, and brighter, too:
P1060014

There’s a slit in the front of the tent for the camera’s lens to go into, and a sheet of white oaktag inside. It’s kind of big and unwieldy (in retrospect, I should have made something this size), but it looks pretty good inside. I took this picture of my nerdle-point pillow, in progress, and the even white lighting made it very easy to punch the item off the background:
P1060009.

Now to make this project pay for itself by sticking everything nearby into the tent, taking evenly lit pictures, and selling it on eBay. Like maybe the cat. Here, Squeaky!
