    I built a softbox from a shower curtain, bedsheet and 1"x1/2" pine wood to experiment with lighting. Here are some of my results... C&C Welcome!

    Doesn't look homemade at all - they all look very professional - especially the 3rd and 5th.

    If you wanted you could always play around with the first and fourth in PS (with levels perhaps) to get rid of the gradients, but it truly does not bother me that much.

    Great job and welcome to TPF.

    I didn't think to take a picture of the setup. It is not really finished and looks a little ghetto.
    It consists of a 36"x48" sheet of white acrylic laying on a table with a 36"x48" "softbox" propped up by cardboard boxes.

    I had to take the softbox apart for space issues, but I plan to set it back up this weekend and I will take a couple of pictures of it to post.

    the rubber duckie one is great. I actually wanted to build something like this a while ago, but it never happened.

    Just one little bump to make sure that the people who wanted to see the setup pictures got to see them...
