    So I built my lightbox today- fairly easy to do and only took about 15 mins to put together tops. I based mine off of this tutorial.

    I think the lighting came out good but I think my fine focus might be off. Or maybe it was for the fact that I don't have a shutter release? The close ups look slightly blurred in areas even thought I shot in the f11 range.

    Also, I tried a pearlized photo paper which I'm not extremely pleased about.

    You should get the heel of the shoe away from the paper in the background. You can see it's really close and casting a shadow.

    Other than that, looks pretty good. :)

    thanks for the c&c- I bought poster board to cover the seam and after testing it out today I know I've gotta get a paper roll...

    With the lack of a shutter release set it up on your tripod and set your cameras self timer. 2 seconds should do just fine for you. The white balance appears to be off just a hair however.
