I first read about making my own light box from Melanie's post. I was waiting for a box, with some height to recycle and just so happened to get one in the mail the other day.
I think I cut the borders a little too thin, and the box wasn't really too big to put a lot of things in it, but I think it makes taking pictures in natural light a little easier.
Photos: "warm" dish
Mikage Takasugi desserts...pumpkin mousse & mont blanc. The pumpkin mousse had chocolate cake on the bottom, whipped cream and an outer layer of pumpkin puree.
The mont blanc was filled with chestnuts and whipped cream, the bottom layer was a crust and an outer layer of chestnut puree.
La France pear. I am not sure why they are called La France, maybe they originally came from France? The texture is like bartlett and really sweet.
The cost? very little if anything...I'm recycling the box and taped on tracing paper on the outsides. I think if I find a little bigger box, I'll try again, until then, I'll keep using this one. How do these photos look?
