Up here in the north, when fall merges into winter, the sun doesn’t shine much.
Then during the 5-6 months of full blown winter, the sun rarely shines.
This is a total bummer for me on so many levels, but the one I particularly want to chat about today is lighting for food photography.
I always have great light in the summer, but in the last couple of months I have had to rush to make something when the sun is actually shining.
This rushing thing is not fun.
So I got ahold of my BFF Google, and we chatted about how to make home made light boxes.
I liked a lot of Googles ideas, but light boxes are to small for some of the things that I photograph.
So I came up with my own solution.
A squeezy-clampy-light-thingie and a full spectrum light bulb attached to my tri-pod.
It works perfectly, and it doesn’t take up space to store it.
It is a win-win!
Now if I could just find a solution for self cleaning toilets….
