Photography light tent from laundry bin and shower curtain
Materials: FALG laundry bag, LERSTA floor lamp, EGGEGRUND shower screen
Description: One day I was at my local photography store I saw one of these “Pop-Up” light tents. It consisted of a collapsible white fabric box with a hole in the front and 3 lights stand (excluding bulbs) – used for photographing small objects in photographic studios.
I was going to purchase it until I saw the S$300 price tag. No way I am going to spend S$300 on some fabric and 3 lights when the material costs far less. So I set off and built one of these light tents,
I bought a FALG laundry bag for S$9.90, a EGGEGRUND shower curtain for S$6.90, 2 LERSTA floor lamp at $19.90 each spending a total of $56.60 and it did not come out bad at all.
