It isn't pretty...

A couple weeks ago Wendy had a post about a light tent. When I saw that, I asked MFB if he would make a light box for me. MFB, always looking for a new project, checked with one of his co-workers who is a photographer and videographer and this is what MFB came up with. It isn't pretty, but it was far less expensive than purchasing one. Have I mentioned that he spoils me?

Here is one of the pictures I took today.
The Yarnographers forum on Ravelry is pretty neat and it's helping me learn some things about my camera. I have a long way to go, but it's a start.

Neat! Jody bought me one but my camera sucks so it doesn't matter. Looks like you have the best of both!

This is awesome! I love the photo from the light box, and I'm campaigning now to hubby for one of my own. :0)

How cool! Are they special light bulbs? Your yarn is really pretty and it looks like a "store's" photo! When it comes to beauty, let the yarn have the spotlight! Less $ on lightbox=more $ for yarn;)

Wow, how cool! I want such a lightbox too!!! But, CM being the computer-geek, he might be able to do something similar, but he certainly wouldn't do it - buuuhhh ;((( YFB rocks big time!
Love that yarn - what a yummy colorway!
