Building my first lightbox.

The box itself is made from 5 pieces of Elmer's Foam Board. The box stands 30" tall, 20" wide, and 20" deep.

The foam board itself is 3/16" thick.

In the first part of the process, I cut the foam board. The connecting portions are all notched, and then I lined the seams on the outside of the box with white masking tape for additional stability.

I'm still working on acquiring some muslin to diffuse the lights.

The lights I'm using at the moment are three 150 watt equivalents (CFL), soft white, in tin work clamp fixtures. I haven't given much thought to how I am going to support the lights yet... one step at a time.
