I am a fool. There, I said it.
For the two years (give or take) I've been a toy photographer, I've resisted using a lightbox. Of course, I had great reasons to not use one.
1) It isn't really safe to start a fire in the lightbox
2) The smoke machine is a pain to operate as it is
3) I am a fool
Seeing that I am a fool, it should surprise no one that we already have a "professional" lightbox around the house. I bought it for April a few years ago as a Christmas gift and she didn't like using it and I wasn't comfortable with it so it has sat, unloved against the wall. Poor lightbox.
My friend Adam, knowing that my studio consists of the stove top (and secretly pitying me for it), pointed us to a great Shelving Unit that was so affordable that we couldn't really resist. We got it assembled and I finally got up the nerve to play with it.
I am a fool. Please forgive me, Oh Lightbox!
