    Here are my first attempts at whiteground. I know the subjects are not that interesting but I was just wondering what you thought about them.

    This one I sort of messed up and lost a lot of detail on the lens cap

    I did something similar to this

    http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-diy-10-macro-photo-studio.html

    I just used white tissue paper as the walls, and this weird semi-transparent legal sized white piece of paper for the background, but I am sure regular printer paper would work. I took the paper and curved it to make a seamless backdrop. Then I just took the brightest lights I could find in my house, put them on all sides of the box that had tissue paper. Then I overexposed the background a little and it will become completely white. I just did it with things I had in my house so it should not cost much, if anything at all.


    also I know some people do whiteground by using fluorescent lights but that seemed impractical for experimenting.
