DIY mini photo studio

Here's how Nick Britsky made a nifty mini photo studio.
NewImageOur household is spawning blogs like bunnies. Since I need all the help I could get, I thought it would be good to up my photo game. We’ve been using a bay window to take some of our pictures. So I started researching a mini photo studio solution. The goal was to combine a light tent and an infinity wall all in a desktop model. I started by mocking it up in Sketch-up. The hardest part was figuring out the curve. Sketch-up was a huge help and with little math I figured out the length while leaving a gap to wiggle it in. I used hardboard as it had the most flex and kept me from having to keft plywood.


  1. Day-um.  That is exactly what I need to resume my stop-motion LEGO animation project.  (My homebrew greenscreen solution just wasn’t up to snuff, and left way too many artifacts in the finished product…)

  2. Interesting. A nice setup but what does it cost? Since cost is usually the main reason to go DIY. My 16x16x16 light box ran $25 including all materials and lights.

  3. The urban dictionary states:
    Keft. to pass gas, to rip, to trump. Commonly used in the classroom after someone just let rip a major eggy fart: “OHHH! Who’s keft?”

    Colour me confused

  4. I suspect you mean kerfing not kefting. Kerfing is the process of cutting many parallel shallow cuts into wood to allow the curving of normally rigid materials .

  5. Terrible photographic results on his Flickr, I made one out of a large cardboard box and some pure white artist board

  6. I’m wondering if the little tripedal robot is going to drink what’s in the brown bottle – or just look at it.
