Photo Backdrop

Over the last few projects I've been wanting a better way of photographing them. Currently the way I've been doing them is to lean my art board on the back wall of the painting table and then put it all in front of white paper. Before that I had made a small light box, but it didn't seem to work as intended. So, I needed a new solution.

Enter some scrap black fleece and plywood!

This is much nicer, because the black sucks in any extra light and keeps it from reflecting into my camera or washing out the exposure. I just need to get it set up with a couple new lamps with diffusers mounted on them to help soften the light and I think I'm all set!
