Playing with the lightbox

This is a discussion on Playing with the lightbox within the Architecture & Man Made (cities, buildings, roads, objects & abstracts) forums, part of the Show your photo (Color) - Landscape & Nature (flowers, mountains, storms etc.) category; Finally got some time to play with the lightbox I made a couple of weeks ago ......

    neat. sorry to have missed this.
    I know nothing about light boxes so here's a question:
    how do you get some photos on black and others on white?
    Feel free to make comments on any of my shots

    I'm guessing add a seamless floor and background to the inside of your light box? I've only done white with my home made lightt box. nice shots MA

    Very cool. I do not recall ever seeing it before, so must have missed it the first time round.

    I used card Bambi. High in the back wall of my box I cut a couple of slots. I stick the card through those and then let it flow down to the front of the box. As Richard says it creates a seamless floor and I can change the colours at will.

    Very nice MA. I think I like the white ones more for some reason. I think it is the faint shadows.

    Cheers AntZ. Have you ever seen my lightbox? Come around and borrow it sometime if it's something you think you might like to play with.

    LOL.....I'm so not going there but my mind certainly is...
    Funny story...went to the liquor store with my friend today while out on a walk...saw a beer called "thirsty beaver". We made a joke about it to the clerk who stated to my friend (who is gay) that he "oughtta try the beaver sometime you might like it...it's really good"
    My friend replied "Sir if you knew anything about me I'm sure you would know that it's not for me" lol! .....after we had left I suggested he'd be more befitting trying a beer called "trousersnake ale" over "thirsty beaver"!
    We both roared to which he said he wished he'd thought of that to say instead!
