Lighting Test – Journal and Pilot Metropolitan Pen

Photograph of a leather bound journal and Pilot metropolitan fountain pen

I’ve just built a lightbox/photography area into a closet in Ginger’s studio. We’ve also bought some new LED lights and this was a quick first test with just two of the lights operating.

It looks like it is going to work. We are going to have to get some black card for the walls to control reflections and highlights – like the one showing on the top left of the spine of my journal. Sometimes we’ll want those highlights, sometimes we won’t.

Below the photography area, I fitted shelves to either side and there is room for two, wheeled carts to fit in the middle. I also added another higher shelf – mainly to fix the lights to.
