Making a photo light box.

Getting the box made was pretty easy but then attempting to take photos where the lighting and perspective are just right is just really tricky.  Any tips are more than welcome!

Today I dove into the challenge of taking better quality photos of my work.  This is not an easy task!  First, simply finding a place to take the photos where I have room to put the light box and a tripod is challenging in my studio space.  

I used about 10 books to get it to just the right height for the tripod and to be situated in the window so I could use natural light.  I am grateful that it was a sunny day in Portland!  I am curious to experiment on cloudy days and with spotlights in the near future.
