    I made a lightbox last night and tested it out by doing a macro shot of a whisk from my kitchen, what do you think?

    Lighting is nice, not as soft as a true one, but I like the DOF.

    Thanks!

    The light box was made out of a cardboard box, tissue paper, posterboard, and 2 desk lamps on either side with daylight bulbs. I think I may need one on the top as well, but I was pleased with the results.

    It's always good to post a photo of the "Thing" that you would like critiqued. I'd like to see how you made your homemade softbox along with the photo, otherwise it's difficult to critique.

    This is a misleading statement. You can get very soft light or hard directional light from a soft box.
