Lightcase photo box

My wife recently purchased me a light box from Lightcase in the UK for my hobby.  I'm really impressed with the shots so far and hopefully this will eliminate any shadows or random background elements from my blog photos from here on out.  It's currently available from their website for around $60 shipped.  It can also be collapsed down and tucked into a large envelope for storage.

This is it assembled.  Comes with three backgrounds (white, black and clear) and can be folded flat and tucked into a bag if you want to travel with it.  The hole up top is designed for a smartphone camera, all of the following shots were taken with my iPhone and a desk lamp for lighting.  Bettter results can be had with a real camera and natural light.


  1. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

  2. Very cool lightbox. What were you using before? I may have to actually purchase one. I've been using my homemade one. It works well but not as well as I imagine a professional one would. What are you using for lights? I have daylight bulbs in my desk lamps that work well.
